Ernest Bloch is the first composer to express successfully the Jewish national idiom in music. It is not my desire to attempt a " reconstruction " of Jewish music ', says Bloch. ' It is the Jewish soul that interests me, the complex, glowing, agitated soul that I feel. vibrating throughout the Bible ... All this is in us, all this is in me, and it is the better part of me. It is all this that I endeavour to hear in myself and to transcribe in my music ; the venerable emotion of the race that slumbers way down in our soul '.
Even in his more or less abstract music, such as the Piano Quintet and the Concerto Grosso, ' the emotion of the race ' is expressed. The Concerto Grosso, designed on classical lines, was written during 1924-5 for Bloch's pupils at the Cleveland Institute of Music.
Henry Purcell composed overtures, dances, and incidental music for a large number of stage productions. The five pieces that Arthur Bliss has selected to form a suite come from various sources. No. 1 is the Overture to The Gordian Knot. No. 2 is an air from the play called Distressed Innocence. No. 3 is a short sarabande from Amphitryon (which is not being performed this evening). No. 4 is a still shorter minuet which is taken from the music to Distressed Innocence, and No. 5 is a vivacious hornpipe from The Married Beau.
