THE PEARL OF DUBAI SUITE

There are some who believe that Anastasia, the strong willed youngest daughter of Tsar Nicholas and Tsarina Alexandra, left for Dubai in 1916 for the purpose of collecting pearls. She intended to return to St. Petersburg with the pearls so that Fabergé could design a special creation just for her. Aided by her cousin, Grand Duke Pavlovitch and her sister Marie, blackmailed into helping her, a plan was carefully worked out so that she could leave the palace unnoticed; her stand-in look-a-like, Regina taking her place whilst she was away.

A catastrophic event in Dubai exposes the plan and the family are informed that she is lost, presumed dead.

Regina’s true identity, although revealed, was never accepted as true by the revolutionary guard. As a result she was executed with the family.

The Suite is in four movements.

 

BALLAD OF READING GAOL

In July, 2011 I decided to set the first seven verses of Oscar Wilde’s profound “Ballad of Reading Gaol” to music. The composition ends with the famous lines: “Yet each man kills the thing they love.”

Since this recording I have started composing a second, much longer version of the Ballad. Both versions are dedicated to Andrew Goodwin and Mira Yevtich. - Grant Foster
