Alwyn was a virtuoso flautist and was much in demand as a soloist. He took part in many first performances of important chamber works in the company of famous instrumentalists such as Marie Korchinska (harp), Reginald Kell (clarinet) and the Griller String quartet. He introduced to Britain many important chamber works, including the Roussel Joueurs de Flûte, for which Roussel's widow presented him with a commemorative medal of the composer.

"The Haffner Wind Ensemble is very impressive indeed, both individually as personalities and as a team matching timbres expertly. Their playing is full of spontaneity and conveyed enjoyment and the recording is well balanced and very realistic, as we expect from Chandos. The acoustic seems just about perfect." Gramophone
