Oorspronklik

The Morning Star. from Spring Symphony, Op. 44. SATB and Piano Reduction. Composed by Benjamin Britten. 1913-1976. For Choral. SATB. BH Secular Choral. 8 pages. Boosey & Hawkes #M051481903. Published by Boosey & Hawkes. HL.48022502. ISBN 1480330442. 6.75x10.5 inches. Publisher. Boosey & Hawkes. Difficulty level. The Spring Symphony was commissioned by the Koussevitzky Music Foundation and is dedicated to Serge Koussevitzky and the Boston Symphony Orchestra. It was actually premiered at the Concertgebouw, Amsterdam in July 1949 before its American premiere the following month at Tanglewood by its dedicatees. This work is a major undertaking from all points of view. It uses a huge orchestra. complete with cow horn which has to be hired specially. , a children's choir which certainly does not have to be composed only of boys, three soloists, and a large SATB chorus which is given very challenging and detailed music to sing. If any work demonstrates the flip side of the Britten coin from Saint Nicolas it must be the Spring Symphony. Here is a seriously intentioned, highly contemporary work for its time which nevertheless shows his predilection for anthologising texts, for creating amazing moments of levity - approaching the humorous episodes in his operas - and producing a score of such colour and vibrancy that the impression left on the mind is indelible. Despite being composed for an American ensemble and conductor this work is quintessentially British. The poems have strong connections with English pastoral imagery and some are forever associated with settings as madrigals. In fact this madrigalian emphasis bubbles gently beneath the surface for much of the work and points up where Britten's roots really lie. This is a challenging work on all fronts and is an extremely complex composition. It is however eminently performable by a choir of sufficient size to balance the large orchestra and who can rise to the level of attainment Britten requires. It also really does need a childrens' choir - and a children's choir which can sing with real confidence and projection. They are given a key role to play in this work. In fact the 'spring' element so vital to the whole concept is underscored by young singers in the 'springtime' of their lives. This, therefore, has to have a completely different kind of tone quality from the main choir - a second group of sopranos won't do. Beyond these practical caveats this is a score which deserves to be better-known and more often performed than it is, and choirs and orchestras should be encouraged to promote it widely. It is one of the most original choral. orchestral works of the first half of the twentieth century. Duration. Spring Symphony, complete. 45 minutes. Paul Spicer, Lichfield, 2011 Full of humour and high spirits - the entry of the cowhorn always raises a smile - it makes a wonderfully upbeat ending to this earthy work. The children's choir is given a starring role throughout this amazing movement, but nowhere more so than at Britten's inspired coup de théâtre where he brings in the well-known Sumer is icumen in at the end which crowns the sweepin.

Die Morning Star. van die lente Simfonie, Op. 44. SATB en Klavier Vermindering. Saamgestel deur Benjamin Britten. 1913-1976. Vir Choral. SATB. BH Sekulêre Choral. 8 bladsye. Boosey & Hawkes #M051481903. Gepubliseer deur Boosey. HL.48022502. ISBN 1480330442. 6.75x10.5 duim. Uitgewer. Boosey. Moeilikheidsgraad. Die Lente Simfonie is in opdrag van die Koussevitzky Music Foundation en is toegewy aan Serge Koussevitzky en die Boston Symphony Orchestra. Dit was eintlik première op die Concertgebouw in Amsterdam in Julie 1949 voor die Amerikaanse première die volgende maand by Tanglewood deur sy dedicatees. Hierdie werk is 'n belangrike onderneming van al die punte van die oog. Dit maak gebruik van 'n groot orkes. voltooi met koei horing wat word spesiaal gehuur. , 'N kinders se koor wat beslis nie net om te word saamgestel uit die seuns, drie soliste, en 'n groot SATB koor wat gegee is baie uitdagend en gedetailleerde musiek te sing. Indien enige werk demonstreer die ander kant van die Britten munt uit Saint Nicolas moet dit die lente Symphony wees. Here is a seriously intentioned, highly contemporary work for its time which nevertheless shows his predilection for anthologising texts, for creating amazing moments of levity - approaching the humorous episodes in his operas - and producing a score of such colour and vibrancy that the impression left on the mind is indelible. Ondanks die feit dat gekomponeer vir 'n Amerikaanse ensemble en dirigent hierdie werk is tipies Britse. Die gedigte het 'n sterk bande met Engelse pastorale beelde en 'n paar is vir ewig verband hou met instellings soos madrigale. In werklikheid is dit madrigalian klem borrels liggies onder die oppervlak vir baie van die werk en wys tot waar Britten se wortels lê eintlik. Dit is 'n uitdagende werk op alle fronte en is 'n uiters komplekse samestelling. Dit is egter by uitstek uitvoerbaar deur 'n koor van voldoende grootte is die groot orkes te balanseer en wat kan styg tot die vlak van bereiking Britten vereis. Dit is ook nie regtig 'n kinders se koor - en 'n kinders se koor wat sing met die werklike vertroue en projeksie. Hulle word 'n belangrike rol om te speel in hierdie werk. In die feit dat die "lente" element so noodsaaklik om die hele konsep is beklemtoon deur jong sangers in die "lente" van hul lewens. Dit het dus 'n heeltemal ander soort van toonkwaliteit van die hoof koor te hê - 'n tweede groep van soprane sal dit nie doen. Beyond these practical caveats this is a score which deserves to be better-known and more often performed than it is, and choirs and orchestras should be encouraged to promote it widely. Dit is een van die mees oorspronklike koor. orkeswerke van die eerste helfte van die twintigste eeu. Duur. Spring Symphony, complete. 45 minute. Paul Spicer, Lichfield, 2011 Full of humour and high spirits - the entry of the cowhorn always raises a smile - it makes a wonderfully upbeat ending to this earthy work. The children's choir is given a starring role throughout this amazing movement, but nowhere more so than at Britten's inspired coup de théâtre where he brings in the well-known Sumer is icumen in at the end which crowns the sweepin.
