Conducted by Warwick Braithwaite
Bruch (1838-1920) was once Conductor of the Liverpool Philharmonic Society, and was for many years a famous teacher in Berlin. Kol Nidrei is a prayer intoned in some Jewish synagogues on the Day of Atonement.
Bruch used this sad chant as the basis of a piece for Solo 'Cello, Harp, and Orchestra.
If we do not often hear the larger works of Moszkowski (1854-1925), he is a familiar friend to very many who have played his pianoforte duets. From Foreign Parts, or, of recent years, heard his light orchestral music broadcast. He composed also in the larger forms-a Symphony, Joan of Arc, Concertos for Pianoforte and Violin, a Ballet, and the Opera, Boabdil, The Last King of the Moors. This is founded on an incident in the war of the Spaniards and the Moors in the fifteenth century. The Ballet Music taken from the work consists of three pieces, a Spanish Malaguena (in three time, with a characteristic rhythm beginning with whole beat, two halves, whole), a Scherzo-Valse, and a Moorish Fantasia (two time, commencing with dignified chords and going on to build up the piece over a recurring motif that stumps about in the bass).
