Brahms's Gypsy Songs, written in 1887, are based on the words from a book of twenty-five Hungarian folk songs with piano accompaniment published in Budapest. Brahms was so pleased with the words that he took fifteen of the melodies and reset them for solo vocal quartet with piano accompaniment, publishing eleven under the title of ' Zigeunerlieder ', Op. 103, the remaining four being later included in the Six Quartets, Op. 112. The subject of the ' Zigeunerlieder ' is a sort of general treatment of the pleasure and tribulations of love.

BBC Symphony Orchestra : conductor, Sir Adrian Boult
Bax's Symphony No. 1 was composed in 1922, when he was thirty-nine years of age, and is dedicated to John Ireland. It is full of exceptional vitality and possesses an architectural sweep that is, to say the least, impressive. Bax is no formalist turning out symphonies to pattern. His attitude to the symphony form is essentially rhapsodic and his treatment essentially romantic. Three features stanj out even after a casual hearing of the Symphony No. 1 : wealth of rhythmic and melodic invention, lavish orchestration, and a richness of harmony that does not disdain the use of dissonances, if necessary, to enforce his conception.
