The dream of Olwen : piano solo
Charles Williams: The Dream of Olwen
In Cornwall in , young pianist and composer Olwen Trevelyan Audrey Fildes is struggling with the ending of a piano tone poem she is composing. Driven to complete the piece by her domineering elder sister Julia Sonia Dresdel , Olwen becomes agitated and despondent, and one night sleepwalks to the edge of a cliff near their home. Julia follows her and shouts her name but Olwen, abruptly awakened, loses her balance and falls to her death on the rocks below. Olwen's final composition gains her posthumous recognition, and each year on the anniversary of her death it is broadcast on the radio. On the 25th anniversary of Olwen's death, Julia is listening to the broadcast when she hears a frantic knocking at the door and opens it to admit an unknown young woman Carol Raye , who immediately walks up to the piano and begins expertly playing along with the piece on the radio. The young woman claims to have lost her memory and to have no idea of who she is or how she came to chance upon the isolated house, yet she seems to have a familiarity with the surroundings and the history of the Trevelyan family. Struck by her physical resemblance to Olwen, Julia offers her refuge and, also seeing behavioural traits reminiscent of Olwen, becomes convinced that the woman is the reincarnation of her dead sister.
The Dream of Olwen
This haunting piano piece, from the movie, "While I Live," is the "Urtext Edition" by composer, Charles Williams, and is similar to other piano solos of this era which display a grand, "concerto" style. The main theme features a rolling arpeggiated left hand accompaniment under the lyrical melodic line of the right hand, ranging from whisper soft to dramatic, crashing fortissimos. There are contrasting sections such as the "cantando" portion where left hand takes over melodic duties under delicately rolling right hand sixteenth note patterns. This is a dramatic, emotional concert piece that will be an enjoyable musical adventure for both pianist and audience. Maurice Hinson.
