(Section C)
(Led by LAURANCE TURNER )
Conducted by JOSEPH LEWIS LUCY SCOLLICK (pianoforte)
(First Performance)
The four little numbers which have been arranged for orchestra by Haydn Wood for the first time, are part of the late Sir Edward Elgar 's ' Seven Lieder '. They were some of his earlier compositions, but the fact that they have lived through so many years, proves that they were the first of his really good work. The song ' Like to the Damask Rose ' has, of course, become a classic, and is one of the few Elgar songs that are used on practically all recital programmes. We understand that the songs were published very reluctantly by one firm in the early 'nineties, but were later taken over by the present publishers, who realised their worth. These orchestral transcriptions, made with loving care by a great admirer of Elgar's, may be said to be Haydn Wood 's ' Homage to Elgar'. '.
Alexandre Charles Lecocq was born just over a century ago and lived to within' a few days of the Armistice. But excepting for occasional performances of his most popular operetta, La Fille de Madame Angot , he is a practically forgotten composer. In his day, however, some fifty or sixty years ago, he was, even in England, one of the most successful operetta composers on a stage that almost idolised Offenbach and Johann Strauss.
