Paul R. Ludden wrote: I am finishing the doctorate in music, and am researching a specific connection between Bax and Elgar. Bax’ 2nd full orchestral work: "A Song of War and Victory" was written in 1905, the same year as Elgar’s P.&.C. March #3 premiered. Both pieces are in C minor, marchlike, and begin with a similar "stomp-like" musical figure.
My upcoming (October 1997) performance of the Bax piece will be the American premiere. Mine was the very first edition of the work, when I created a performance set for Robert Tucker and the Royal Air Force Orchestra in 1994.
I am giving you this information in hopes that others may learn that current (important) seminal research is ongoing in this area (& of course ... others). Also, if any have tidbits of interesting information that could contribute to my research in this area, I would be most grateful to receive any and all of it.
Thank you kindly,
Paul R. Ludden
