Are you tired of the mincing of Mozart, the bluster of Beethoven, the vaingloriousness of Wagner, and the cheesyness of Tchaikovsky?
Why not give the music of the English Late Romantics a try? Vaughan Williams, Delius, Bridge, Butterworth et al. It glides on the breezes of the Spheres It smells of the earth and fresh water. You could soar with VW’s Lark Ascending, bask in the shadow of Butterworth’s Banks of Green Willow, or dream sad dreams beside EJ Moeran’s Lonely Waters. You could even join Delius in remembering how you felt On Hearing the First Cuckoo in Spring.
Do It Now!
(There. I got a ‘now’ in with an exclamation mark. That makes it a proper ad.)
