Quote from: Papy Oli on August 27, 2020, 03:06:54 AMI have listened to the above yesterday and today. I have found the Sextet and the Symphonic quintet particularly entertaining (top marks for the Andante of the latter, very moving).Another one for you, Lol !! 0:)
Quote from: Irons on August 27, 2020, 08:14:18 AM Coincidentally I listened to his Violin Sonata No.3 "Orientale" early this week. I have no idea where the title comes from as there is nothing remotely oriental about it. More jazz, modern not traditional, a really good violin sonata. So yes, Olivier, I'm tempted.
Quote from: Roasted Swan on April 24, 2021, 07:42:18 AMAs part of my fixation for British 20th Century Music I have just about every commercial disc of Holbrooke there is. By I have yet to have a "lightbulb" moment with any of it. I quite like it but most of the time I think the orchestration is too dense (Bantock without the jokes), over-thought and ultimately unmemorable. I watched the link to the composer who was intrigued to reconstruct Apollo & the Seaman because of the references to that work in the orchestration book by Cecil Forsyth. That was genuinely very interesting but ultimately you're not a good composer/orchestrator because you include saxophone parts in 1908!
Quote from: Figaro on August 11, 2022, 12:45:41 PMInterested about the Welsh connection in Holbrooke's music. He doesn't seem (from what I can tell) to have had any Welsh ancestry himself but seems to have drawn on Welsh mythology extensively as inspiration for his music - Gwyn ap Nudd, the Mabinogi etc. He could be said to have the same relationship with Wales as Bax did with Ireland in that sense.Anyone know any more about why Wales inspired him?
