THE BOURNEMOUTH MUNICIPAL SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA (50 Performers)
Conducted by Sir DAN GODFREY
BOTH this and the 'Academic Festival' Overture were written about the same time, and both were first played at the concert in Breslau which followed shortly after the conferment upon the composer of the degree of D.lh. by the University of that city.
The Tragic Overture is not a prelude to any drama, nor is it based upon a story. Everyone may form his own ideas of its significance, and all will agree that it sustains a noble discourse, with a note of fine deep feeling (as in the expressive second main theme). Solo Trumpet, PHIL LEDlNGTON; Solo Flute, JEAN GENNIN; Solo Oboe, JOSEPH CRAEN; Solo Violin, BERTRAM LEWIS Soloist, NlEDZIELSKI CYRIL SCOTT conceived this work somewhat after the manner of a Bach Concerto, with a rather light accompaniment. He is said to have described it as ' impressions of Bach taken while on a supposed journey to China.' The work is in three Movements, in which the use of the Celesta, of bells and the Harp, together with the extremely piquant orchestral and pianoforte writing, give the music an air of brilliant fantasy.
