A Concert from the Municipal Theatre
Arnold Bax describes his tone poem 'Tintagel' as follows: 'This work is only in the broadest sense programme music. The composer's intention is simply to offer a tonal impression of the castle-crowned cliff of (now sadly degenerate) Tintagel, and more especially of the long distances of the Atlantic, as seen from the cliffs of Cornwall on a sunny, but not windless, summer day. The literary and traditional associations of the scene also enter into the scheme. The music opens, after a few introductory bars, with a theme, given out on the brass, which may be taken as representing the ruined castle, now so ancient and weatherworn as to seem an emanation of the rock upon which it is built. The subject is worked to a broad diatonic climax and is followed by a long melody for strings, which may suggest the serene and almost limitless spaces of the ocean.'
Last week Constant Lambert discussed the origins and development of modern dance music. This evening he will review the different styles of the present day: for instance, the tunes that emanate from Tin Pan Alley and those that are composed by musicians of real invention who are at the same time masters of their craft, such as Duke Ellington and Spike Hughes. He will talk about the songs in verse and chorus form, originally composed for revues and afterwards arranged specially and individually for well-known dance bands, and then the 'piece without words' which is specially composed for one band, and which is intended to be listened to as music and not necessarily to be danced to.
