‘My music is mainly based on traditional procedures and principles … I do not have any particular theories of composition, just a natural inclination for it’. These clear and precise observations by Arnold Cooke (1906-2005 ) are indicative of a practical approach to his craft. During a long creative life he abstained discreetly from a battery of stylistic trends, including serialism, aleatoricism, minimalism, musique concrète and electronic music, and established single-mindedly a substantial canon notable for its unfaltering cogency and integrity. In his review of the BBC broadcast of Cooke’s Symphony no.4, Meirion Bowen commented that, ‘The format is entirely that of the traditional four movement symphony – crystal clear to follow, perfectly proportioned in the best academic traditions’. The score has a certain Brucknerian grandeur and it is a tribute to the closely-argued intensity of Cooke’s writing that he achieves this feeling of thematic opulence in a work which is roughly half the time span of an average Bruckner symphony.
