About

Australian-born Hubert Clifford started his musical career in Melbourne but came to England in 1930 and remained there for the rest of his career. He taught music in a boys’ grammar school, moved to the BBC and then became Alexander Korda’s music director at London Films, ending as the BBC’s Head of Light Music. This exploration of Clifford’s music, covering a 30-year span, presents his tuneful early orchestral works written in Melbourne, including Dargo: A Mountain Rhapsody, a glorious Moeranesque evocation of his childhood home. Two of his film scores, Left of the Line and Hunted, and his commission for the BBC’s 1958 Light Music Festival, The Cowes Suite, which celebrates famous yachtsman Uffa Fox, provide colourful contrast.
