Parry's ' Blest Pair of Sirens ' is one of the composer's finest works and is in the great tradition of British choral writing. Particularly striking is the fine sense of climax-building and the rich contrast between simplicity of effect and vigorous and concentrated polyphonic writing. It is dedicated to Sir Charles Stanford and the Bach Choir, who gave it its first performance in 1887.
played by Winifred Small (violin) and Maurice Cole (piano)
Darius Milhaud 's Second Violin
Sonata was written in 1917 when
Milhaud was attached to the French Legation in Rio de Janerio. It is, of course, free from the extreme iconoclasm in which Milhaud indulged later when he came under Cocteau's influence. The music shows a decided lyrical gift, fondness for contrasting rhythms, and a reaching out to the realm of atonality.
and his West Indian Dance
Orchestra with Don Johnson , David Wilkins , and the Johnsonairs
Presented by M. H. Allen
