In a Persian Market: intermezzo-scene (1)                                                                     Back to list of works index

 

The work was first advertised as a piano piece in Musical Opinion (January 1921) under the heading "Educational novelties”.  The orchestral version was published 6 months later.  It is an easy piece to play well, and has always been popular with groups of all standards.  Many diverse performances can be seen on YouTube, but only a few of the more interesting versions are indexed below.  The variety of melodies is particularly attractive to Wurlitzer organists. A clip of Betty (of Wilson, Keppel and Betty) dancing to it can be seen at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=srLc6dTsewM

 

Its use in a music-and-movement class in a German primary school is described in the article Auf einem Persischen Market: ein Hit der Salonmusik wird zum Hit im Unterricht, by Lothar Schubert (Musik in der Schule, 1997 Heft 1, p.15-19).

 

The work is a basically a string of melodies, or pot-pourri.  However, material is recapitulated in a manner vaguely resembling sonata form.  The piece begins and ends like a patrol (crescendo as the patrol approaches, diminuendo as it disappears, c.f. Beethoven’s Turkish March) – but Ketèlbey has a Haydnesque surprise with the unexpected final loud chord.

 

Unlike In a Monastery Garden, with its sophisticated harmony and a religious aura, the simple diatonic and pentatonic melodies of In a Persian Market have proved a good starting point for jazz musicians.

 

Composer’s synopsis

The camel-drivers enter the market, the cries of beggars for "Back-Sheesh" are heard, the princess arrives carried by her servants (this theme is repeated by full orchestra), she stays to watch the jugglers and snake-charmer.  The Caliph announced by trumpets, now passes through the market, the beggars again cry out for "Back-Sheesh", the princess departs, the caravan resumes its journey, but everything is stilled for a few moments by the voice from the minaret calling to prayer; the caravan moves off, and the market place becomes deserted.
