In Xanadu did Kubla Khan
A stately pleasure-dome decree :
Where Alph, the sacred river, ran
Through caverns measureless to man

And there were gardens bright with sinuous rills,
Where blossomed many an incense-bearing tree ;

Coleridge-Taylor composed a violin concerto for the American violinist Maud Powell . The American performance of work was subject to rewriting because the parts were lost en route – not, as legend has it, on the RMS Titanic but on another ship.  The concerto has been recorded by Philippe Graffin and the Johannesburg Philharmonic Orchestra under Michael Hankinson (nominated "Editor's Choice" in Gramophone magazine), Anthony Marwood and the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra under Martyn Brabbins (on Hyperion Records ), and Lorraine McAslan and the London Philharmonic Orchestra conducted by Nicholas Braithwaite (on the Lyrita label). It was also performed at Harvard University 's Sanders Theatre in the autumn of 1998 by John McLaughlin Williams and William Thomas, as part of the 100th anniversary celebration of the composition of Hiawatha's Wedding Feast .
