 Update me on new releases by Bax

Arnold Bax (11/08/1883 - 10/03/1953)

Arnold Bax, English by birth, found through reading the poet W.B. Yeats a latent affinity with things Irish. The Celtic element, in consequence, plays a large part in his work and thought. He occupied an important place in English music in his own time and was knighted in 1937. At its best his music has a compelling charm and power.

Film Music

Bax wrote scores for the films Oliver Twist, the war-time Malta GC and Journey into History.

Orchestral Music

In addition to his seven symphonies Bax wrote a series of evocative tone poems of Celtic implication, including The Garden of Fand, November Woods and Tintagel. There are concertos for cello, for viola and for violin; Symphonic Variations for piano and orchestra; and Concertante for piano left hand and orchestra. The latter was written for Harriet Cohen, with whom he had a long relationship.

Chamber Music

Bax wrote three numbered string quartets, various quintets, an interesting viola sonata, three violin sonatas, and works for larger instrumental groups, including a nonet for wind and string instruments and an octet for horn, piano and string sextet.
