Ballet Suite, The Good-humoured
Ladies .... Scarlatti, arr. Tommasini
' The Good - humoured Ladies ' owes its name to the Russian Ballet of Diaghilev, who produced it in 11)19 with a plot by Goldoni. The music is taken from the harpsichord pieces of Domenico Scarlatti. Well suited for such a ballet, it is graceful, light-hearted music, and it has been admirably arranged for this purpose by Tommasini, a modern Italian composer whose work is less known than it deserves to be.
The ' Idyll ', Wagner's first purely instrumental work and perhaps the loveliest thing he ever wrote, was not originally intended for the world in general. It was Wagner's personal gift to his second wife, and it was only later that he decided to publish it and permit its public performance. For several years Wagner had been living in retirement at Tribschen with Cosima, the divorced wife of von Eiilow, and in 1869 she bore him a son, whom they named Siegfried. Next year he married her, and on her birthday (Christmas Day) gave her this delightful surprise-the ' Siegfried Idyll played by a little band placed on the stairs outside her bedroom door.
