Meditations on a theme of John Blow
Metamorphic Variations


Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra


David Lloyd-Jones


Scored for a large orchestra, including an extensive percussion section, Sir Arthur Blissís Metamorphic Variations dates from the end of his creative life.

Inspired by the triptych Tantris painted by Blissís long-time friend, the late George Dannatt, it is a work of extremes, of enormous power, passion and violence balanced by gentleness, whimsy and delicacy.

Meditations on a Theme by John Blow is one of Blissís most eloquent and personal scores, a private tribute to a generation cut down in its youth, including his own brother, during World War I.
