Alan Titchmarsh's Great British Discovery
Arnold wrote his Four Scottish Dances in 1957, intended to evoke Scotland with reels, snap rhythms and instruments imitating bagpipes. Each of the four is inspired by - although not based on - Scottish country folk tunes and dances. The second, labelled Vivace, is a lively reel with a "tipsy" middle section.
