In a Persian market


Albert W Ketèlbey (1875–1959) was born in Aston, Warwickshire, and achieved his reputation with a series of pieces evoking exotic locations. One of the best loved is In a Persian Market (1920), evoking images of camel-drivers, jugglers and snake-charmers, and heard here complete with its chorus of beggars singing: ‘Baksheesh, baksheesh Allah. Empshi, empshi, empshi’.

Albert W. Ketèlbey (1875-1959), né à Aston (Warwickshire), se forgea une réputation grâce à une série de pièces teintées d’exotisme. L’une des préférées, In a Persian Market (1920), évoquant chameliers, jongleurs et charmeurs de serpents, est entendue ici avec son chœur de mendiants.

Albert W. Ketèlbey (1875-1959) wurde in Ashton in der Grafschaft Warwickshire geboren und machte sich einen Namen mit einer Reihe von Stücken, die exotische Schauplätze heraufbeschwören. Eines der beliebtesten ist In a Persian Market (1920), das Vorstellungen von Kameltreibern, Jongleuren und Schlangenbeschwörern hervorruft und hier einschließlich seines Bettlerchors zu Gehör gebracht wird.
