WILLIAM PRIMROSE (Violin)
THE WIRELESS SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA
(Leader, S. KNEALE KELLEY ) Conducted by BASIL CAMERON
COMPLETED in 1918, and published in 1922, this piece is inscribed by the composer, ' For Philip Heseltine ,' who is known to listeners also under his composer's name, Peter Warlock. Scored for only wood-winds, two homs and strings, it begins with a fresh, happy melody, given chiefly to the strings in nine parts, with little snatches of tune on the woodwinds breaking in on it. The music changes to a more flowing measure and sinks to very soft tone, and after a moment of sudden strength and energy, returns to the opening melody. At the end it dies away softly and slowly, and the whole short piece is eloquent of its subject, in Deliua* picturesque way.
