Program Notes

The Othello Suite was commissioned for a Herbert Beerbohm Tree production of Shakespeare’s Othello at His Majesty’s Theatre in London. Originally comprising five movements, the work contains several strong and contrasting themes, which must have sounded most impressive in their original theatrical setting.
