    Its subtitle is Variations and Fugue on a Theme of Purcell, the theme is a melody from Henry Purcell's Abdelazar. Britten gives individual variations to each of the sections of the orchestra, starting with the woodwind, then the string instruments, the brass instruments and finally the percussion.

    Young Person's Guide to the Orchestra. The theme, or main melody, for this composition comes from a dramatic work by a much earlier composer, Henry Purcell. Purcell was one of the most famous English composers of the late seventeenth century. He was especially well known for his use of counterpoint.

    I have read some reviews complaining the 'Young Person's Guide to the Orchestra' has no spoken introduction to each piece. For me this a great relief, because intermittant talking would spoil the music. Better to think of the work by its sub-title of 'Variations and Fugue on a theme of Henry Purcell' and to appreciate it as a mature composition/5(26).
