Michael William Balfe, though counted as one of our English composers, was really Irish, born in Dublin in 1808. He was a man of many parts - a violin soloist, an operatic singer, a conductor and composer, and his career took him to many countries. He collected honours also from different parts of Europe, being a Chevalier of the Legion of Honour, and a Commander of the Order of Carlos III of Spain. The King of Prussia offered him the Order of the Prussian Eagle, but that he was not allowed to accept.
(Soloist, E. BOAM) (Soloist, R. SMITH)
An Australian by birth, Clutsam began his career as a concert pianist, playing in many parts of the world before he came to settle in London. There he made a name for himself as accompanist and as music critic. His first important work was The Lady of Shalott, played in London in 1909, and more than one Opera of his has been presented here. One was specially interesting-an opera in such miniature form that it might be only one torn in an evening's entertainment. It was included in that way in a programme of the old Tivoli. Along with Hubert Bath, he made a real success with Young England to a text by Basil Hood, produced in 1916, and no one needs to be reminded of the happy way in which his Lilac Time embodies so much of the charm of Schubert's music.
