ENID CRUICKSHANK (Contralto);
HUBERT EISDELL (Tenor)
THE WIRELESS MILITARY BAND
Conducted by B. WALTON O'DONNELL
DEBUSSY'S Little Suite was originally' written for Piano Duct, then arranged
(by another hand) for Orchestra. It is one of his earlier compositions.
Boating, the first piece in the set, begins in the gentle, swaying style of a Barcarolle, and has a middle section of a stronger, more rhythmic character. After it, the opening matter is repeated.
The Second piece is entitled Procession.
After a rather deliberately-moving march tune has been treated, there is a middle section, in what may be called a refined rag-time manner. Then the tune of tho opening march returns, combined with that of the middle section.
Tho third piece is a graceful Minuet.
Lastly there is a Ballet, a lively, very rhythmic dance, with a fine climax.
STEWART MACPHERSON is a musician who abandoned the career of a composer for that of an educational worker. and in this field he has exercised a very wide influence. It will be pleasant to meet him as a creative artist. His compositions include a Symphony, it Concerto, two Overtures, and other works for orchestra, a Mass, songs and pianoforte pieces.
