Program Notes

Grainger's Rustic Dance is the second movement of his Youthful Suite. "The Rustic Dance and Eastern Intermezzo were composed and fully scored for a small orchestra in 1898/9, Grainger's seventeenth year. While these two movements were fully scored in 1899, the whole work was not put together as a complete suite in its present form until 1945.

Rustic Dance begins with a gentle pastoral theme as the title suggests and takes on a more energetic character with a lilting and occasionally syncopated 6/8 rhythm.
