English Music for strings - Vaughan Williams / Elgar / Delius / Warlock - ASD 2351

£5.99

Product description

Ralph Vaughan Williams' Concerto Grosso must surely be the only piece, where the orchestra is divided into sections of playing skill ! There are three sections : 'Concertino' - Advanced skill ; 'Tutti' - Intermediate ; and 'Ad Lib' - novice playing skill.

Side One : 1) Concerto Grosso, by Vaughan Williams :-
i) Intrada ii) Burlesca Ostinata iii) Sarabande iv) Scherzo v) March & Reprise

The works that spring from Frederick Delius' last twenty, to twenty five years, are all the more remarkable, not only for their brilliance, but also bearing in mind that Delius was suffering from the continual advancement of the torments of syphilis.

'Air and Dance' is one of the composer's miniatures, a piece rife with an aura of something half-forgotten yet precious, a searching iambic ramble unexpectedly interrupted by a skipping dance awakening us to sunlit radiance.

Side One : 2) Air and Dance, by Delius.

Peter Warlock idolised Frederick Delius throughout his life, and, among others: organised a festival in Delius' honour in 1929; wrote a biography of Delius; arranged some of his idol's last works; and, finally, composed the piece included on this album.

Side Two : 1) Serenade to Frederick Delius, by Warlock.

Edward Elgar's 'Serenade' is believed to be one of the composer's earliest works, written before he had firmly decided on what was to be his chosen career. However, it was not published until he was in his full flourish as a composer.

It has a youthful charm while at the same time displaying indications of the skills Elgar developed as he progressed towards musical maturity.

Side Two : 2) & 3) Serenade in E minor, by Elgar :-
2) Allegro piacevole 3) i) Larghetto ii) Allegretto - Come prima.

Records graded visually to RRPG grades (record/sleeve) EX-/VG+.
