  • On An Overgrown Path: How important is a composer’s music?
    allow nothing to distract him The temptations to stop by the way and to be side tracked by felicities of sound and colour are ever present but in my view everything extraneous to the pursuit of this central idea must be rigorously excluded scrapped We are very fortunate that the neglect of Elizabeth Maconchy s music is not total In 1989 Unicorn Kanchana had the vision to record the complete quartets with three young string groups the Hanson Bingham and Mistry Quartets The performances are committed energetic and exemplary The recordings were produced by Misha Donat and two church venues were used with the legendary sound engineer Tony Faulkner balancing nine of the quartets and Anthony Howell the others These are performances and recordings to die for and the even better news is that the complete string quartets are now available on 3 CDs on the Regis label for the price of a single CD and they come with an excellent 24 page booklet of notes by the composer and Nicola Lefanu But despite this wonderful recorded legacy we are still left with the conundrum of Elizabeth Maconchy vital and astringent music combined with an unassuming personality My header photo expresses this conundrum perfectly When Erich Wolfgang Korngold died in 1957 he was buried in Hollywood Forever Cemetery just a few steps away from another film composer Walter Jurmann who is famous for writing the song San Francisco When I started writing this article I did not even know where Elizabeth Maconchy was buried To my astonishment my research uncovered that the unassuming final resting place she shares with her husband shown in the photo is a few miles from where I write these words at Eaton Parish Church here in Norfolk But in the end it is the music matters I started by asking the question How important is a composer s music The string quartets of Elizabeth Maconchy are important twentieth century music 15 28 is a very small price to pay to find out how important Good to see the BBC doing their bit Elizabeth Maconchy above is the Radio 3 Composer of the Week starting March 19th and you can also download audio files of her talking about her art And read here about another scandalously neglected Elizabeth Header photograph by Pliable February 2007 copyright On An Overgrown Path Any copyrighted material on these pages is included for fair use for the purpose of study review or critical analysis only and will be removed at the request of copyright owner s Report broken links missing images and other errors to overgrownpath at hotmail dot co dot uk Posted by Pliable at Sunday March 18 2007 Email This BlogThis Share to Twitter Share to Facebook Share to Pinterest Labels BBC chamber music classical music contemporary composers contemporary music elizabeth maconchy erich wolfgang korngold karel jirak misha donat nicola lefanu norfolk 5 comments sfmike said What a lovely piece of advocacy I ll check her out As far
