From Keith Llewellyn,
Secretary of the Malcolm Arnold Society
Adrian's time with
the Slaithwaite Philharmonic Orchestra
was a gift to the Society and myself.
His warm interpretations of the
compositions of Sir Malcolm Arnold
at so many concerts were prodigious,
and the live performances over
a period of thirty years did more to
promote the composer's music than any
other amateur conductor in the
rest of the UK.
I was fortunate to
have known Adrian. He was a lovely man
and had the knowledge and enthusiasm
to go with it.
