The conductor, traumatologist Rowan Harvey Martin, will direct a program of very listenable early 20th century music by European composers
An English Suite for String Orchestra, 1914
In the “High English” style, with moments of simple, melodic grace sandwiched between episodes of complexity and sophistication. Still incomplete at his death in 1918, this work was finished by his amanuensis.
Concerto Grosso for String Orchestra & Piano Obligato, 1924
Clearly constructed as a Concerto Grosso but incorporating traditional sounding melodies from his heritage. Surprising humour at times, and more than one swipe at JS Bach.
Ancient Airs and Dances (for Lute) Suite III. 1932.
Respighi’s characteristicly intricate reworking of old music to subtly exploit the capabilities of “modern” instruments.
Five Greek Dances
Passionate, unquestionably Greek, dances for string orchestra.
