MIRIAM B. HYDE (pianoforte)
Serge Prokofiev is considered one of the leading contemporary composers of Russia and in his numerous works such as the opera, The Lore for Three Oranges, he has shown himself to be a master technician and a composer of great individuality. His ' Classical Symphony ', however, is not really representative of his style. It was composed in the spirit of a jeu d'esprit that, as its title would suggest, both in form and idiom harks back to the time of Haydn and Mozart. The music is clear-cut, full of straight-forward melodies and tunes, and provides a most attractive glimpse of the eighteenth century through modern eyes.
(First Broadcast Performance)
Miriam Hyde is an Australian pianist who studied at the Royal College of Music. Among her compositions are two piano concertos, both of which received their first performance under the auspices of the Patrons Fund. No. 1 in E flat, written a couple of years ago, is a pleasing and cleverly written work, the music of which may be said to derive its style from Rachmaninov and Tchaikovsky.
