Elgar’s Music for Powick Asylum – Innovation Chamber Ensemble, Barry Collett

Delighted to announce this new recording of Elgar’s Powick Asylum music, Somm is greatly indebted to the conductor Barry Collett whose first recording with his Rutland Sinfonia, twenty-five years ago, made Somm aware of the music’s existence. Scores and parts for this recording have been taken from the Elgar Complete Edition with permission from the distributors, Elgar Works.

It was in January 1879 that the twenty-one-year-old Elgar was appointed Bandmaster at the Worcester County and City Lunatic Asylum in the nearby village of Powick. Elgar’s ensemble had its origins in a brass band, founded with instruments bought with asylum funds. The enlightened doctors in charge of the asylum were in no doubt about the therapeutic effects of music upon the patients, who enjoyed dancing. Elgar became involved in teaching the players in the band, writing dance music for the weekly Friday entertainments, and conducting the band, which consisted of members of the Asylum staff. These made up a rather eccentric orchestra of piccolo, flute, clarinet, two cornets, euphonium, and bombardon, up to eight violins, occasional viola, cello, and double-bass with piano, a maximum of nineteen players.

This download of music for Powick opens with a charming, Schubertian Menuetto which Elgar had originally composed for flute and string quartet. This is its first outing in the Powick orchestration. Over the six years of his Bandmastership Elgar composed four sets of Quadrilles, a set of Lancers, and five Polkas. A delightful addition to this download is the first recording of A Singing Quadrille in which Elgar mainly uses well-known nursery rhymes. The work remains only in sketch score and Somm is grateful to Andrew Lyle who edited this as well as all the other music for Powick, for the Elgar Complete Edition.

To quote Barry Collett on Elgar’s Powick Music: ‘In summary – lost masterpieces, no... But surely works to be enjoyed and treasured alongside the great masterworks in the same way as the German Dances and Ländler of Schubert, Haydn, and Beethoven.’
