Five Variants of Dives and Lazarus is a work for harp and string orchestra by Ralph Vaughan Williams. The composition is based on the folk tune Dives and Lazarus, one of the folk songs quoted in Vaughan Williams' English Folk Song Suite. Vaughan Williams composed the work on commission from the British Council to be played at the 1939 World's Fair in New York City. The first performance was by the New York Philharmonic at Carnegie Hall on 10 June 1939, conducted by Sir Adrian Boult. The other works. Vaughan Williams: Five Variants of Dives and Lazarus.

Composer: Ralph Vaughan Williams 12 October 1872 - 26 August 1958 - Orchestra: Jacques Orchestra - Conductor: Sir David Willcocks - Year of Five Variants on Dives and Lazarus for strings and harps was composed for the 1939 New York World Fair and sounds like an offshoot from the Tallis Fantasia or the Fantasia on Greensleeves, but more wistful and sentimental. Willcocks contributes what can be considered THE classical and reference version, in that he plays Vaughan Williams' adagios at or close to his metronome indications rather than like Barbirolli or, in 1972, Marriner, Vaughan Williams: Fantasies The Lark Ascending Five Variants markedly slower which tends to unduly solemnize and sentimentalize the music and closely observes the composer's precisely and carefully conceived tempo. David Willcocks. Vaughan Williams: 5 Tudor Portraits. Your Rating. Overview . In the case of his Five Variants of Dives and Lazarus, the inspiration was less literal. The original tune in question, called Dives and Lazarus, is referenced in sixteenth-century writings but could well have been written earlier than that, and is a musical depiction of the new Testament story of the rich man and the beggar. You may know many other names, perhaps The Star of the County Down. It was first performed by the New York Philharmonic Symphony Orchestra in June 1939 under the baton of Sir Adrian Boult. Later that year, Boult conducted the British premiere at Bristols Colston Hall. Recommended Recording. Album 2005 7 Songs.
