Songs of Sunset (for Soprano and Baritone solo, Chorus and Orchestra)
' EVENTYR ' means ' Once upon a time ', and this work is a ballad for orchestra founded on fairy tales by the Norwegian, Asbjornsen. It was composed in 1917 and first performed at a Queen's Hall Symphony Concert under Sir Henry Wood in 1919. EVER SINCE Thomas Beecham , confident in the genius of his friend Delius, gave performances of The Village Romeo and Juliet in 1910 at the Co vent Garden
Theatre, this Intermezzo from the -' Opera has been heard, although too infrequently, in the concert hall. Yet, even divorced from the Opera it appeals as a little tone poem.
Sali and Vreli are the ' Romeo and Juliet ' who have suffered in their love for each other from the bitter enmity of their parents. They meet again after a cruel separation, and determine to have one day of pleasure together. They go to a neighbouring fair, happy in each other's company ; there they are recognised and worried by importunate questions. Anxious to be wholly alone, they leave the fair and walk to the Paradise Garden, ; which is an inn, formerly the manor house of a ruined country estate. The music describes their walk, and though the opera ends in tragedy, this little journey passes in serene and happy communion.
