  • Handel in the Strand

    SKU: BBBE170501

    Percy Grainger; arranged by Michael Allen


    The composer writes “My title was originally “Clog Dance”. But my dear friend William Gair Rathbone (to whom the piece is dedicated) suggested the title “Handel in the Strand,” because the music seemed to reflect both Handel and English musical comedy (the “Strand” — a street in London — is the home of London musical comedy) — as if jovial old Handel were careering down the Strand to the strains of modern English popular music.”
