The BOURNEMOUTH MUNICIPAL SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA (50 Performers)
Conducted by Sir DAN GODFREY and SUSAN SPAIN-DUNK
Relayed from the Winter Gardens, Bournemouth (Soloist, SAMUEL KUTCHER )
THIS work has as poetic basis Tennyson's conception of Elaine, the holy maid of Astolat' in Lancelot and Elaine (Idylls of the King).
It opens with a short Introduction for Woodwind, in which hints of the coming First Main Tune are heard. This, a long and impassioned melody, is heard from First Violins. On its first phrase much of the working out of the work is based. Prefacing the next section is an accompaniment-motif for Woodwind, which is important, for, together with the first phrase of the opening theme, it forms the material of the development. As soon as we have heard the Second Main Time (on Violas), with this motif persistently accompanying it, the ideas are worked out, and then, in the Coda, the two main themes appear in combination. The First Main Tune's opening notes are used as a repeated bass, with. the effect of a funeral knell, reminding us of the last sad journey of the Maid.
