Editor Rein de Vries. Then, beginning with the ninth, he presents four notes moving up in whole steps: B, C-sharp, E-flat, F. The significance of these four notes will appear later in the piece.
This very carefully shaped tone row provides the raw material for the movement, and it indicates from the beginning that traditional harmonies may be admitted to this very new theoretical world. He thought of this beginning as a kind of prelude. Up until now, the work has been surprisingly sweet in character at least for those with little experience of atonal music, who expect the worst.
The second movement begins with a much more violent explosion of dissonance, a stormy, rhythmically driven passage that only gradually quiets down for the last phase of the concerto. I mentioned earlier the last four notes of the tone-row, which comprise four steps of a whole-tone scale.
This is rarely found in tonal music, but it does occur in one very significant place—as the opening of the melody of a chorale tune that Bach had harmonized in his Cantata 60 two-hundred years earlier, with a 17 th -century text that represents a farewell to life:. Es ist genug! Mein Jesus kommt: Nun gute Nacht, o Welt! It is enough! Lord, if it please you, then unyoke me at last. My Jesus comes; Now good night, O world! I travel hence to my heavenly home, I travel surely, and in peace, My great torment stays here below. Berg knew that he wanted to quote the chorale melody here, and he cleverly made the last four notes of the row correspond to the opening of the tune.
But in listening to a performance, that completely misses the point. Even before anything was known beyond the dedication to Manon Gropius, audiences who heard the work were gripped by the expressive power of the music, as they still are today. The motto theme of the symphony came to Elgar in June of , but it was not until December of that year, while staying in Rome, that he actually sketched the first movement; working hard in England the following summer, he finished the score on September 25, The score calls for three flutes third doubling piccolo , two oboes and English horn, two clarinets and bass clarinet, two bassoons and contrabassoon, four horns, three trumpets, three trombones and tuba, timpani, bass drum, cymbals, side drum, two harps, and strings.
Duration is about 50 minutes. Elgar spent his formative years in Worcester, where he lived with his family over the Elgar Brothers music shop, where he spent as much time as possible absorbing the scores in stock. With all that music at hand, he was able to pursue his musical enthusiasms without having his talents dampened by the incredible stodginess of the academic instruction at the official schools.
This blessing in disguise forced him to follow his own, original course. The most unlikely experience proved to be the most valuable. For this ensemble he composed original music and rescored the classics to include whatever instruments were available from week to week. His unsurpassed ability to balance the sonorities and to ring the most delicate and subtle changes of color on his scores aroused universal admiration and respect.
But Elgar remained a purely local celebrity until he was forty. The work that brought him sudden and lasting national prominence was Variations on an Original Theme Enigma , performed in under Hans Richter.
Even after Gerontius was recognized as a masterpiece, he held back from the task of writing a symphony; yet he had been considering one for several years. In he had proposed a commemorative symphony, a kind of English Eroica , on the subject of General Gordon, who had died in the massacre at Khartoum in north Africa in How original, how pure , noble, etc…. How I wish you had been there. I never in all my experience saw the like. The Hall was packed ….
