Edgar Leslie Bainton (1880-1956) was a pupil of Walford Davies and Stanford, friend of George Dyson and long-time Principal of Newcastle-upon-Tyne Conservatory. He emigrated to Australia in 1934, and thus sadly faded from the British music scene.
In 1914 while en route to the Bayreuth Festival, Bainton was apprehended as a British civilian in wartime Germany and interned for the next four years in Ruhleben Camp near Berlin. He was placed in charge of music-making at the camp and became acquainted with a number of other musicians, including Ernest MacMillan and cellist Carl Fuchs. Despite many hardships this four-year exile proved to be a period of great creativity, resulting in his Three Pieces for Orchestra and a piano concerto.
The PAVANE, IDYLL and BACCHANAL was written in 1924. This was Bainton’s only published orchestral work (he is known chiefly for his choral music) and was originally published in 1925 by Oxford University Press. This new edition has been re-typeset but is otherwise unchanged.
The flute only plays in the Idyll, though this may be played by a solo violin. The tambourine in the Bacchanal may be omitted.
A recording of this work with Paul Daniel conducting the BBC Philharmonic Orchestra is available on the Chandos label (CHAN10460).
