Busoni began his Rondo arlecchinesco during a visit to America in 1915. In it he has developed some of the principal themes from his opera Arlecchino. In a preface he wrote : ' Harlequin's language is universal. First he states his philosophy brazenly on the trumpet; next he shrills at the world through the piccolo ; threatens with the basses, sight with the violoncello, seeks the remote with violinistic agility.'

that's what I say ! '
This is the second of twelve broadcasts, each to be prefaced by a short scene from everyday life, and each illustrating the usage of some familiar catch-phrase. Are such phrases just a way of avoiding clear thinking, or do they represent the wisdom of the ages? This is the question to which speakers of wide experience will try to find an answer.
Conducted by Leslie Heward
Bloch's symphonic poem ' Winter-Spring ' is an early work. It was written in 1905, when he was twenty-five years of age. The music is very romantic in character and scored with a masterly sense of colour.
As for ' Sadko ', the story is that of the minstrel of Novgorod who is carried off by the Sea King's daughter and sets the whole submarine kingdom dancing to his music (thus causing an appalling storm on the surface of the ocean). Rimsky-Korsakov's programme is very simple and concise : Calm sea-Sadko's s descent into the depths of the ocean-the Sea King's feast (Sadko's dance tune growing wilder and wilder as the storm arises)—calm sea as at the beginning. Rimsky-Korsakov used the themes of this early orchestral piece in his opera Sadko, composed twenty-eight years later.
