June 8 Concert

Edmund Rubbra: the man & his music

Christopher Gunning gave a pre-concert talk on Rubbra's music to a packed audiance

The final concert of Three Rivers Music Society’s 2017-18 season shone a much-needed spotlight on an English composer who is unknown to many of today’s concertgoers.

Although Edmund Rubbra’s music fell out of fashion about 50 years ago, some argue that he was one of the most significant British composers of the 20th century.

On Friday, June 8 the hugely popular Maggini Quartet underscored the importance of the Gerrards Cross composer’s work with a memorable performance of his Third String Quartet.

Their concert in Rickmansworth’s Baptist Church, which also included works by Haydn and Schubert, was attended by Rubbra’s younger son, Adrian Yardley, a music librarian who is currently working on his father’s archive.

The society was also delighted to welcome one of Rubbra’s most distinguished students, Christopher Gunning, who lives in Rickmansworth.

Gunning, a multi-award-winning composer of film and television scores, gave the pre-concert talk in which he offered insights into Rubbra’s music, his personality and his teaching style.

A prolific composer of instrumental and vocal works, Rubbra was highly respected by major musical figures such as Ralph Vaughan Williams and Sir Adrian Boult.  His fame was at its peak in the mid-20th century but his name had been almost forgotten by the time of his death in 1986.
