Leader, Alfred Cave
Conducted by Leslie Heward
Felix White (born 1884) is a self-taught musician with markedly individual creative talent. His Second Rhapsody, his fourteenth orchestral work, composed last year, is in free variation form, and is based on three Irish airs from the Petrie Collection: a love song, ' 0, Peggy of the fair hair ', an ancient clan march, and a keen or lament. Writing in 1915 about folk song, Stanford described this keen as ' a specimen of the finest type of wild Celtic imagination.'
