Music in the Landscape
Sorry, this item is now out of stock.
The Malverns, Tintagel, Egdon Heath and the Suffolk coast are just some of the landscapes evocatively portrayed in music by the 20th century’s greatest British composers. This book explores how the diverse open spaces of the countryside have inspired distinctively British sound-worlds, from Elgar’s Cello Concerto to Britten’s Four Sea Interludes. Marshall surveys the work of some 40 composers, both world-famous names and lesser-known geniuses such as Havergal Brian and Hamish MacCunn. Introduced by Jeremy Irons and Jonathan Dimbleby.
