Music about London
As vividly descriptive as music may be of the many-sided life of a busy capital, the ' Cockaigne ' Overture sets before us first the crowds and the bustle of the streets, and soon there is an episode in more serious vein-London's dignity. The vivacious opening returns, and then we are told of two young lovers-a melody on the violins. Street urchins are portrayed by a merry doubling of the dignified theme, and the next episode is a Military Band, coming from a distance, and passing by with pompous step. Again, a little later, band music intrudes on the two young people -this time a street band, with a playful mockery of the military music. Then, in a quieter section, we are to imagine the lovers as having found a refuge where only far-off echoes of the streets can reach them. The themes, after the traditional development, are repeated, and the Overture closes with a reminder of the gay spirit in which it opened.
Till is not merely a legendary figure. He was born early in the fourteenth century and lived near the Harz mountains, in low Germany. He came of peasant stock and was wily, boorish, and class-prejudiced, but gifted with a remarkable wit and an irresistible love of fun. Till was a rogue, of course, but a merry one, and Strauss has given an ingenious picture of Till in his symphonic poem.
Respighi's three best known orchestral works all deal with his native city of Rome, with its fountains, its pines, and its church windows, so that flippant people talk of him as a ' Musical Baedeker ' to the city. The ' Fountains ' was the first of the three to appear, and is, not unnaturally, still the best known. It is in four movements, each of which describes for us in music one of the famous fountains, and the Suite takes us through the whole of a Roman day.
