2  Little-known music of all eras / Works on the wireless / Frederick Delius - Appalachia variations (1903) on: October 15, 2017, 12:01:04 pm
"Hey ho, hey ho, down the mighty river in the morning . . ."

These variations on an old slave song, for baritone, chorus and orchestra - a revision of the "American Rhapsody" for orchestra of 1896 - cover a wider range of styles than Delius was later willing to admit. The harmony is always recognizably his own, but there is still a considerable reliance on conventional melodic developments and counterpoint; regular phrase-patterns are as much in evidence as the subtle flights of harmony which point forward to his maturity.!5PInEaJb!U1mU9cggTjyMk1gismkD1Qudeww_8 erfi_d9PY-woT8
