Berners The Triumph of Neptune Suite
arranged for Piano. Described as 'A pantomime in twelve scenes', this was composed in 1926 for Diaghilev's Russian Ballet. With a book by Sacheverell Sitwell and choreography by George Balanchine, it was inspired by a series of Victorian drawings which Diaghilev had bought Pollock and Webb's theatrical bookshop in Hoxton.
It depicts the fortunes of Tom Tug, a sailor who has left his wife after her infidelity and follows his adventures which end triumphantly with his transformation into a Fairy Prince and marriage to Neptune's daughter.
