Cornish Rhapsody is often played as a companion piece to the more famous Warsaw Concerto. Bath’s composition features in the 1945 film, Love Story, starring Margaret Lockwood and Stewart Grainger. Lockwood played a concert pianist, and her composition of the Rhapsody reflects her love both for Grainger and the Cornish landscape that provides much of the setting for the film. The Rhapsody is heard in the film in a Royal Albert Hall concert. Picture: istock
