Symphony No. 4 (The Welsh)..Cowen
1. Allegro vivace, non troppo; 2. Lento tranquillo ; 3. Scherzo : Allegro molto vivace-Trio: Molto piu lento; 4. Allegro moderato
The late Sir Frederic Cowen wrote a prodigious number of works of every description, from symphonies to songs and opera to piano solos. Cowen's industry was remarkable, for composition was to some extent a side-line. Although he lived to be eighty-three the greater part of his output was accomplished before the War when he was much in demand as a conductor.
A pupil of Moscheles, Reinecke, and Richter at the Leipzig Conservatorium, Cowen carried on the sound German tradition of his musical upbringing. But if his method was German, his fancy and invention were distinctly individual. His six symphonies, of which No. 4 in B flat minor (the ' Welsh ') possesses a pleasing local colour of a felicitous character, are a monument to the composer's solid and thoroughly capable workmanship, variety of treatment, and gracious melodic invention.
