Dance

composer
published by Boosey & Hawkes, New York, in the 1942 volume Homage to Paderewksi

 
Richard Hammond moved from England to America during World War I, graduated from Yale and eventually settled in Los Angeles near Igor Stravinsky, one of his closest friends during the 1940s and 1950s. Hammond’s Dance, a rhythmic and exuberant work in mixed metres, provides a welcome contrast to the sombre and sobering piece of Goossens that precedes it.

Émigré d’Angleterre en Amérique pendant la Première Guerre mondiale, Richard Hammond, son diplôme de Yale en poche, s’installa finalement à Los Angeles, près d’Igor Stravinski, qui fut l’un de ses plus proches amis dans les années 1940 et 1950. Sa Danse, pièce rythmique et exubérante en mètres mixtes, offre un contraste bienvenu avec la noirceur et la sobriété du morceau précédent.

Français: Hypérion

Richard Hammond ging während des Ersten Weltkriegs von England nach Amerika, machte seinen Abschluß in Yale und lebte schließlich in Los Angeles in der Nähe von Igor Strawinsky, einem seiner engsten Freunde in den 1940er und 1950er Jahren. Hammonds Dance, ein rhythmisches, überschwengliches Werk in gemischten Metren, kontrastiert angenehm zu dem düsteren und nüchternen Stück von Goossens davor.
