July 5, birthday of Joseph Holbrooke: Trio in D, Op. 28

Another “new” composer, for me at least, Joseph Holbrooke (1878-1958), received a traditional musical education from his father, a violent widower, and later at the Royal Academy of Music. He tried making it as a teacher, a music hall accompanist, and a Pantomime orchestra conductor. None were successful, and he had to return home a number of times or be supported by a benefactor. He loved Edgar Allen Poe’s works, and the second piece here, “Amontillado, Op. 123” is quite interesting.

  2. Interesting blog. I’m a pop/rock guy, so I don’t know much about classical music, but will follow to learn more.
