String quartets seem to be more work to get thru, as listener, than a symphony of the same length. Here is a small helping of Vivace

In the Opus 3, number 6 is actually this



The older recordings put in a middle movement from an organ concerto, which publisher Walsh put in during Handel's time

Boxed set of Benjamin Britten arrived today and so finishes my English composer series. Only a shelf but they are boxed sets, all five of them.

Benjamin Britten - thought it'd be all bombast and nationalistic jingoism yet turned out to be anything but...

"Recurring themes in his operas include the struggle of an outsider against a hostile society and the corruption of innocence." Link

Maybe you thought of Elgar, but he too
felt himself to be an outsider, not only musically, but socially. In musical circles dominated by academics, he was a self-taught composer; in Protestant Britain, his Roman Catholicism was regarded with suspicion in some quarters; and in the class-conscious society of Victorian and Edwardian Britain, he was acutely sensitive about his humble origins even after he achieved recognition.
[urlhttps://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Edward_Elgar]Link[/url]
So you talk about mobs and the working classes as if they were the question. You've got that eternal idiotic idea that if anarchy came it would come from the poor. Why should it? The poor have been rebels, but they have never been anarchists; they have more interest than anyone else in there being some decent government. The poor man really has a stake in the country. The rich man hasn't; he can go away to New Guinea in a yacht. The poor have sometimes objected to being governed badly; the rich have always objected to being governed at all. Aristocrats were always anarchists. - G.K. Chesterton

There are no evil geniuses only over sensitive and misunderstood ones. Classical composers in the English tradition summed up then?
