I’ll See You Again - The Dancing Years of Coward, Novello and Friends. Such are the diversity and talents o f this evening’s composers that it would be impossible to give the full history o f their many brilliant and entertaining works. Space merely allows us to take a brief glimpse at the world of operetta and musical comedy as portrayed by Coward, Novello and friends. Noel Coward first stepped onto the professional stage in 1911 at the age o f 12. This was to be the beginning of a love affair with the world of music and theatre which lasted right up until his death in 1973. He tried his hand, successfully, at everything - writing, directing, composing, acting, singing and producing. His different styles caught different atmospheres - as a playwright of manners he beautifully caught the clipped speech and brittle lifestyle o f the generation which emerged from World War I with disillusion and agnosticism; his songs and revue sketches also struck the world weary note of his times. And Coward had yet another style, sentimental but theatrically effective, which he used for romantically backward glancing musicals and for plays constructed around patriotism or some other presumably serious theme. Having stepped onto the stage at the age of 12, Coward took up writing in earnest in the early twenties with such light comedies as "I’ll Leave It To You"(1920) and "The Young Idea”(1923). His reputation as a playwright was firmly established with the appearance in 1924 o f "The V ortex". "Hayfever" came out in 1925 and the next few years were taken up with more plays and the production of the book, music and lyrics of several revues culminating in 1929 with the appearance of his most popular musical "B ittersw eet". A man who could rival Noel Coward’s reputation as the most versatile man o f theatre is Ivor Novello who was born David Ivor Davies in 1893. His mother was the celebrated W elsh singing teacher Dame Clara Novello. After his education at Magdalen College in Oxford, Novello became famous with a phenomenally successful wartime song 'Keep the Home Fires Burning' (1915). Like Coward he went on to try his hand at acting, writing, directing, composing - all with equal success. His greatest musical success included "Glamourous N ight" (performed 1936); “The Dancing Years" (performed 1936); "Perchance To Dream" (performed 1945) and "King’s Rhapsody" (performed 1939), all of which had lyrics written by Christopher Hassall. The strong European influences this evening come from the pen o f (Charles) Rudolf Friml who was bom in Prague in 1879. Having studied under the Czech composer Dvorak at the Pargue Conservatory, Friml served as piano accompanist for the violinist Jan Kubelik in Europe and the USA, w here he rem ained from 1906. In 1912 he was hired to replace Victor Herbert as composer o f a proposed operetta as a vehicle for the singer Emma Trentini. The resulting piece "The Firefly”, with book and lyrics by Otto Harbach was hugely successful. Friml achieved his greatest popularity in the twenties with musicals such as “Rose M arie” (1924 - with book and lyrics by Harbach & Oscar Hammerstein II) which is best remembered for the song 'Indian Love Call’; 'T h e Vagabond K ing” (1925 - with book and lyrics by Brian Hooker and W.H. Post) with its popular songs 'Only a Rose' and 'Some D ay’. This was followed by "The Three Musketeers" (book and lyrics by Clifford Grey and P.G. Wodehouse) in 1928. From 1934 he turned his attention to the world o f motion pictures. His last important song 'The D onkey Serenade' (Composed with Herbert Stothart; words by Chet Forrest & Bob White) was interpolated into a film version o f "The Firefly” in 1937. W e hope you enjoy this evening’s look at the multi-talented world of the legends Coward, Novello and Friends. Ashling K ito y P.R.O.

R & R News The Society in 1988 celebrated the 75th A nniversary o f its foundataion with a year of very special events. It was a year o f great p ride and jo y for members o f the Society and its friends. The Society was honoured by the attendance o f His E xcellency the P resident of Ireland Dr. P.J. Hillery and the Lord M ayor of Dublin the Rt. H onourable Mr. Ben B riscoe T.D. at â&#x20AC;&#x153;Fiddler on the R o o f â&#x20AC;&#x2122; in N ovember. To these and to all the other great friends o f the Society we offer our sincere thanks for their support and encouragem ent. It is pleasin g to report that our prem ises at 67/69 U pper R athm ines R oad, which had been severely dam aged by fire, are com pletely refurbished and in full use again. A lot o f effort has been p u t into attracting new, young, active (perform ing) m em bers to the Society. T he 75th A nniversary Scholarship Scheme, the R obert M cC ullagh Bursary (see below), the Feis Cheoil R & R cup and Forde / T aylor prize have all contributed to increasing the young active m em bership to the R & R. New A ssociate Mem bers, G uarantors and S ponsors are alw ays particularly welcome. Special functions are held for them, and they contribute greatly to the running of the Society. Their con stan t support is an im portant factor in the success of the Society. The R & R is a member o f A.I.M.S. D u ra b ility to present new shows is very inhibited by the fact tha t they are initially restricted to professional production, and only released for am ateur production when the professional tours are com p leted .W e are pleased to announce that for the A utum n Season the Society w ill present "H ello D olly" for 2 weeks com m encing Tuesday 14th N ovem ber 1989 at the Gaiety Theatre. T he Society has not presented this show before. W e look forward to seeing you there.

THE ROBERT McCULLAGH BURSARY The Rathmines & Rathgar Musical Society is the recipient of a very generous bursary from the Robert McCullagh family. The Bursary was made to honour Robert McCullagh, an esteemed life member and for many years a leading tenor of the Society, now retired. The Bursary was awarded on the recommendation o f the Adjudication Panel to the following; Ms Aisling Green Ms Joyce Tee van Mr. Paul McNamara. On this occasion the Bursary was made for a period of three years to be used to defray the cost of vocal training. The Society would like to record its gratitude to the Robert McCullagh family for initiating this very generous bursary and we regard it as an honour to be charged with its management. The foundation of the Bursary coincided with the 75th Anniversary o f the Society. S.A.F. (March 1989)
