Repertoire Note

Originally conceived in the 1920s as the opening movement of a (subsequently uncompleted) chamber symphony, to be entitled The Bud, the Blossom and the Berry, the Prelude nevertheless stands convincingly as an independent piece. The music has a compelling forward drive, building to a concluding climax of power and expectancy, as the prevailing minor key breaks into the radiant warmth of the major.
