This coffee concert presents late Romantic music from elsewhere in the world. Like so many of his time, Bliss's musical studies were cut short by the first World War. During his brief time at the Royal College of Music he got to know the music of the Second Viennese School, but his post-war music tends more towards a more traditional romantic style. The concert begins with the prelude to Richard Strauss's final Opera, premiered in 1942.
