The opulent and sensual expressiveness in these composers’ works has long
been obscured by more turbulent developments in music of the 20th century.
One of Deems Taylor’s most successful compositions, Through the Looking
Glass celebrates Alice in Wonderland, each of its five sections corresponding
to passages or episodes from this enchanting tale. Influenced by the German
Romantics and French Impressionists, Charles Tomlinson Griffes’ rich harmonic
palette and orchestral colors can be heard in the Poem written for flutist Georges
Barrère, the landscapes of the Three Tone Pictures and poetry of The White
Peacock, while Kubla Khan and the Bacchanale share exotic oriental inspiration.
