by ADELA VERNE

She was a pupil, first of her sister Mathilde, who was herself a pupil of Clara Schumann , and then of Paderewski. She has made extensive tours all over the world as a brilliant soloist, and has in later years been active as a teacher in the well-known Kensington school of pianoforte playing started by her sister in 1909.

THE B.B.C. ORCHESTRA
(Leader, ARTHUR CATTERALL )
Conducted by FRANK BRIDGE
Frank Bridge 's Dance Poem was performed for the first time, and conducted by him, at a Royal Philharmonic Concert in March, 1911. It was later favourably considered by Nijinski for production by the Russian Ballet, and but for the war would doubtless have made its way into their repertory. Yet after twenty years this work is only now to receive its second performance.
The music depicts emotions which a dancer suggests by' movement. Although it is con- tiriuous, there are the following sections : The! Dancer, Allurement, Abandon, Tenderness, Problem, and Disillusion. At the end the dancer hurries from the scene and the music finishes quickly and softly.
