  • Romance for String Orchestra in Eb, Op.11
    Key: Eb
    Year: 1928
    Pr. Instrument: String Orchestra
This is one of the most charming string pieces written in the 20th

century. Its full blown romantic lyricism makes it a likely favourite

of emotional listeners. It is based on two themes. After a haunting

introduction, the first theme blossoms into a passionate cantilena.

A solo violin introduces the second theme. An intense climax

precedes a restatement of the second theme followed by the first

while the music subsides into a melancholic reiteration of the

introduction.
