Program Notes

Jalousie is reported to have been inspired by an actual drama of passion, with a fatal outcome, that occurred in Copenhagen in 1925. The work was performed for the first time in Copenhagen in connection with a film entitled Don Q, starring Douglas Fairbanks.

After hearing the "gypsy" qualities in Jalousie, listeners are usually surprised to learn that its composer was Danish. However, the abandon and frenzy of the gypsy violinists were traits which were well known to the late 19th-century violinists throughout Europe – as, for example, Brahms' Hungarian Dances. In this arrangement, John Krance has captured the inherent gypsy qualities of the piece and at the same time has used the tonal colors of the wind and percussion instruments in a highly imaginative manner.
