Percy Elliott : Rosemary ( Remembrance ) , intermezzo


The British composer, conductor and violinist Percy Elliott (1870-1932) wrote several suites with picturesque titles, and also songs (some under the pseudonyms Godfrey Newark and Walter Bush). This piece, like Elliott's other music will appeal to anyone who likes the songs of Amy Woodforde-Finden or Haydn Wood, and even has the odd hint of Elgar. It was published in versions for violin and piano and orchestra as well as this piano solo version. The title derives from the linkage since ancient times of the shrub rosemary with remembrance and funerals: "There's rosemary, that's for remembrance." (Shakespeare, Hamlet, iv. 5.) -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Played by Phillip Sear http://www.psear.co.uk Email: channel@psear.33mail.com http://www.psear.co.uk (Email: piano2@psear.33mail.com ) Upcoming live events: https://events.time.ly/hsr9pfk YouTube community tab: https://is.gd/SV4II9
