4 of 4 people found the following review helpful By John Austin HALL OF FAMEVINE VOICE on 2 May 2004
Format: Audio CD
This fine Marco Polo issue, recorded in Dublin, presents representative works composed between 1888 and 1919. Dating from 1888, when productions of Shakespeare plays could include newly composed incidental music performed by an orchestra in the pit, the "Richard III" Overture is suitably lugubrious, treating several leitmotoifs identified with the play's principal characters. An angular, quirky theme gives rise to some colourful elaboration in the second item. "The Seasons" is the work I have enjoyed most. There are some especially engaging passages in the "Autumn" movement, where the cor anglais' plaintive tone is well exploited.

If the sound quality is not quite the very best, additional value to this issue is provided by the scholarly program notes of David Russell Hulme.

Wonderful work by a lesser known composer 1 Feb. 2010
By DuaneD - Published on
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Edward German's music evokes images of idyllic days in the English countryside. His works are not as well known as those of other English composers from the early 20th Century but you won't be disappointed if you are looking for music that raises the spirit and soothes the soul.
