"Samuel Coleridge-Taylor (1875-1912) was in his time among the foremost figures in British music. He burst onto the Victorian concert stage in 1898 with Hiawatha-temporarily eclipsing even Elgar-and remained in the public eye the rest of his short life. His orchestral work, Symphonic Variations on an African Air, composed in 1906, is based on an African-American song, "I'm troubled in mind." The work is interestingly structured, achieving a unity and direction rarely found in variation forms. More than eighty years ago the British musicologist Herbert Antcliffe lamented "the infrequency of ... performances" of the work that "in size ... and ... demand for orchestral resources, is the biggest of all Coleridge-Taylor's purely orchestral works." The piece is engaging, with enchanting melodic invention, a harmonic language that is both characteristically chromatic and modally tinged, and a fine sense of orchestral color. As Antcliffe says, "To those who really wish to know Coleridge-Taylor ... no single work of his will reveal him more fully." --

8 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in No Linguistic content and Undetermined and held by 275 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Samuel Coleridge-Taylor began his only symphony as a student of Charles Villiers Stanford, as the major project for the 1895-96 season. This edition of his Symphony in A Minor, op. 8, includes the finale later added in 1900, as well as the two surviving discarded finales from 1896 and the revision of the slow movement issued in 1901 as Idyll, op. 44. The extensive critical notes document the changes made by the composer, both in the score and in the process of copying parts. Coleridge-Taylor was concerned to make his symphony cyclic and struggled with how to accomplish that most effectively, as evidenced by the three finales." --
