"Tintagel", by Arnold Bax (1883-1953)-0


is a short symphonic suite inspired by Arthurian legend by Arnold Bax (1883-1953).

Bax's Tintagel is a vivid tonal impression of the castle-crowned cliff of Tintagel in Cornwall. Here the legends of King Arthur and the scenic grandeur of the Atlantic Ocean fired Bax's imagination into producing some of the most vivid sea music ever written.   Bax himself wrote that the music brought, "...thoughts of many passionate and tragic incidents in the tales of King Arthur and King Mark... and that the piece ends as it began, with a picture of the castle still proudly fronting the sea and wind of centuries"
