Sunday, November 2, 2008 November Woods

There is the tone poem November Woods, written by the British composer Arnold Bax in 1917 a dramatic depiction of a stormy woodland landscape, followed by a much more peaceful section, before the stormy opening stuff returns towards the end. It's very moody something you listen to on a dark day as you puff your pipe and read Tolkien. A spot of dry sherry would also be appropriate.

Bax conducted the American premiere of November Woods in Boston, at Symphony Hall, in 1921. The glowing review from the Christian Science Monitor is here and you can listen to a bit of the piece here.

You might want to click on that second link and have it run in the background as you check out these photographs. The former high-powered Wall Street attorney offers us November woods in central New Jersey, not far from Rutgers and Princeton.
