THIS is shorter than most Concertos, the usual three Movements being condensed into one, which, however, preserves the three sections characteristic of Concerto form. The work is its Composer's Op. 33.
The first theme, played by the solo instrument, is much used throughout the work.
In the middle section we have a charming miniature in the style of a Minuet, in which the Violoncello is accompanied by Muted Strings. This section is frequently played as a solo, apart from the rest of the Concerto.
The work was dedicated to and frequently played by M. Auguste Tolbecque , one of a distinguished family of musicians, originally Belgian, who settled in France.
ARNOLD TROWELL , born at Wellington, New Zealand, in 1887, came to Europe to finish his musical education and made his début in London, at the age of twenty, with a Violoncello recital. He was at once noticed as an outstanding player. He has busied himself also with the composition of a number of works, including a notablo Quartet and a Quintet.
VICTOR HERBERT , bom in 1859, is a grandson of the Irishman Samuel Lover , who wrote ' Handy Andy.' He was for some years a leading Violoncello player. He has written nearly forty stage works, most of them light operas.
RUBIN GOLDMARK (born in America in 1872) is a nephew of that Goldmark (Carl) whose
Overture to The Queen of Sheba and other music is fairly frequently broadcast. He was a pupil of Dvorak when the Bohemian composer was living in America.
In his Negro Rhapsody be makes use of a number of Negro tunes.
