Joseph Holbrooke by E.O. Hoppé, 1913

This is a comprehensive, annotated list of compositions by Joseph Holbrooke. For a simplified version of this catalogue, arranged by opus number, see List of works by Joseph Holbrooke.

Holbrooke was notorious for continually revising and recasting his compositions in different forms:

"The most disconcerting aspect of any inquiry into the works of Holbrooke is that elucidation is not proportionate to the amount of facts unearthed: instead confusion, contradiction and complication tend to increase. It is characteristic that even the composer's name can be found in any combination of Joseph or Josef and Holbrook or Holbrooke. Many works bore various opus numbers at different periods; conversely, an opus number can be found attached to several different works; and the identity of some earlier compositions, particularly in the realm of chamber music, is difficult to trace because of recasting and incorporation into new definitive versions. It is in a way ironic that such a situation should arise with Holbrooke of all composers, for from the first he gave evidence of orderliness of mind in listing and designating his music (e.g. Poem No.2, Symphonic Quartet No.1); but revisions, rearrangements and reshufflings led to havoc from which not even works of later date, when the numbering system might have been expected to have settled down, are exempt."

Notes[edit]

  1. ^ Thompson, Kenneth: Holbrooke - some catalogue data (Music and Letters (1965) XLVI(4), p.297)
  2. ^ Although omitted from work-lists, this opera is alluded to quite often in early Holbrooke literature: Lowe calls it "a work of somewhat lurid character", whilst Baughan, writing in The Musical Standard, describes the libretto by B.W. Findon as "written in the ultra-passionate Italian mode" and quotes Holbrooke as follows - "it [Varenka] hovers between the popular style and Wagner drama ... Not an original conception, perhaps, but one which I thought feasible". A selection of items was performed at a Grand Promenade Concert in aid of the Playgoers’ Club Pantomime Fund for Poor Children (organised by Findon, who was on the committee) at His Majesty's Theatre, London, on 24 November 1907: the soloists included Edith Clegg and Constance Drever. Thomas Beecham conducted the New Symphony Orchestra.
  3. ^ Not included in any catalogue of Holbrooke's works.
  4. ^ Lowe, George: Josef Holbrooke and his work (London: Kegan Paul, 1920, p.38) - Lowe describes works "with which the composer has become ultimately dissatisfied, and these he has had no hesitation in destroying." The "Early Opera" amongst his list of casualties is without doubt Varenka.

  75. ^ Holbrooke, Joseph: Complete list of Holbrooke's published musical works (London: Modern Music Library, October 1941) - several catalogues include reference to Holbrooke's "Poeana", a numbered sequence of compositions based on the works of Edgar Allan Poe: this list classifies the multi-movement piano suites Eldorado and The Lake as forming "Poeana" numbers 17 to 24 (this implied presence of a fourth movement in the Eldorado suite is mysterious since in the 1937 "Poeana" catalogue only three movements are listed). It also describes the Nocturnes, Op.121, as containing "Poeana" numbers 4 and 19: number 4 is Ulalume (also numbered as such in its original orchestral form), whilst number 19 clearly refers to both the third movement of Eldorado and this Nocturne.
