Composer: Frederick Delius (1862 - 1934)
Arranger: Eric Fenby
Format: Score and Parts
Instrumentation: Flute, Oboe, and Piano

Frederick Delius (1862 1934) was an English composer. After studying music in Germany, where his music had its first significant acceptance, he embarked on a full-time career as a composer in France. Thomas Beecham was one of the first to bring his music to English audiences. After 1918 Delius began to lose his sight, but completed some late compositions between 1928 and 1932 with the aid of his amanuensis, Eric Fenby.

"This piece is well known through the orchestral arrangement I made in 1935 by linking two interludes with adjustments from Delius's Scandinavian opera, Fennimore and Gerda. The following year it was recorded by Sir Thomas Beecham. It was the flautist Betty Mills who suggested its transcription for flute, oboe and piano, and whose Oriel Trio gave the first performance at Bradford University on 23rd January 1987, and received its dedication. The first interlude reflects the human romantic feeling in the story. The second, by contrast, conjures up a mood of pastoral serenity by the exquisite interflow of wind arabesques against a background of subtle harmonic shadings by the piano." - Eric Fenby
