Comment by welltemperedear — July 1, 5: So I am starting what I hope will turn out to be an occasional series: How would you describe the music or the performance, and what makes it special for you or for others?
Post was not sent – check your email addresses! And I still hope to eclofue more Finzi, both live on on the radio. Comment by Andelin — October 4, Best, Jake Comment by welltemperedear — October 4, 3: From the very beginning, most of his music was elegiac in tone.
I knew they were moving toward the bombing site. For voice and eclotue he composed the above-mentioned Dies natalisand the pacifist Farewell to Arms But this happiness was not to last. Friends and acquaintances were still missing.
I was out of town for a few days. Eclogue remains my favorite piece of music and Finzi my favorite composer.
I am not sure how to get beyond this Rental Only issue. It plagues a lot of excellent 20th Century music, and I believe it contributes to the concept of the orchestra as a museum rather than a living and evolving entity.
The facts of the story were still unfolding. After Farrar’s death, Finzi studied privately at York Minster with the organist and choirmaster Edward Bairstowa strict teacher compared to Farrar. I heard it by chance on NPR and found it so arresting that I wondered how it had escaped my attention.

Comment by welltemperedear — January 28, 5: I came across this blog as I went searching for it. Finzi and his wife catalogued and edited Gurney’s works for publication. Please forgive my delay getting back you.
Of Finzi’s few chamber works, only the Five Bagatelles for clarinet and piano have survived ecloguw the regular repertoire.
Please help to improve this article by introducing more precise citations. Thank you for sharing such an intimate encounter with the world and with music.
Best, Jake Comment by welltemperedear — July 9, 1: I first came to know this short minute work — a movement from an uncompleted piano concerto — maybe 15 or 20 years ago. If you can, include a link to an excerpt or the whole piece on YouTubewhenever possible, so we can hear it right away. Despite being an agnostic of Jewish descent, several of his choral works incorporate Christian texts. The contrast moved me to tears. Large-scale compositions by Finzi include the cantata Dies natalis for solo voice and string ffinzi, and his concertos for cello and clarinet.

Obviously, something is always lost when you take a concerto and take the orchestra out, but it is just so beautiful, I would love to be able to fiinzi this piece. I too find this piece by Finzi very beautiful. He died soon exlogue, aged 55, in the Radcliffe InfirmaryOxford, the first performance of his Cello Concerto on the radio having been given the night before.
I heard it on the car radio and made a point of remembering it.
