Julius Harrison (1885 - 1963)

Known primarily as an opera conductor, Julius Harrison was also a prolific composer, whose most popular work, Bredon Hill, a rhapsody for violin and orchestra (1942) was inspired by the Worcestershire countryside. Concise and eloquent, Far Forest (1928) exploits contrasts in register and incorporates a mini-cadenza and a wistful coda. It is the last of three sketches Harrison wrote for piano, collectively entitled Severn Country.
