For Orchestra

Adelaide Overture was written in 1935 (while a student at the Royal College of Music, London) in the happy anticipation of South Australia's Centenary in 1936. It is headed Allegro pomposo and is frankly pompous, conveying an impression of splendour and rejoicing at the close of our first century's progress and achievement. It also embodies something of the wild romance of our native bush, and is not without its moments of tragedy - the tragedy of our pioneers who fought a noble battle against the hardships and loneliness of a life in a new, unexplored colony. But it ends in confident, triumphant strains, proud of the past, and with faith to meet the future. (Miriam Hyde)
Composed 1935
