Today is the birthday of English composer Frederick Delius, who lived in the American South when he was young and picked up a sense of "American Themes: during that time. If you like Greig or Wagner, you'll like this.
His Florida Suite hearkens back to his days managing an orange plantation in, well, Florida.
Very nice -- I had never heard of the guy. I just ordered a set of DVDs by Ken Russell and one of the movies he did for the BBC was about Delius. Another was about Elgar which I would like to see as well.
As always a treat on a Sunday morning here in NH.Thank you for doing this.
You are very welcome, libertyman. I know that you like these.
Have never heard of him, nor of his/this work. I just finished it on my headphones while working on my taxes. Very relaxing and helpful. Thank you!!
Unfortunately, more tax work to go. :-(
Think I'm going to run it again.
