Sir Arnold Edward Trevor Bax

Bax (1883-1953) was a composer, poet, and author originally from Cork, County Cork in Ireland. His compositional output includes a vast array of songs, choral music, chamber pieces, solo piano works and orchestral music. Bax’s music represents the post-romantic style that was popular between the two World Wars.

In 1900, he enrolled at the Royal Academy of Music to study piano. In 1916/1917, Bax composed three symphonic poems: “The Garden of Fand,” “Tintagel,” and “November Woods,” which brought him recognition and established his reputation as a composer. His ballet, “The Truth About the Russian Dancers,” based on a scenario by playwright J.M. Barrie, was performed by Serge Diaghilev in 1920.

From 1921 to 1939, Bax wrote seven symphonies dedicated to musicians he admired, including John Ireland and Jean Sibelius. He also composed numerous piano and chamber works, such as a sonata for viola and harp in 1928 and a nonet for winds, strings, and harp in 1931. Bax drew inspiration from the coastal landscapes of Ireland and Scotland where he often resided. His music was known for its romantic and evocative qualities, as well as its rich orchestration.

Bax received a knighthood in 1937 and was appointed Master of the King’s Musick in 1941.
