TREFOR JONES (tenor)
This 'Suite' of Francois Couperin appeared ,n the first of the Concerts Royaux presented by the composer at the Court of Louix XIV while he was clavecinist (from 1716-18). Its original form was that of a trio for clavencin and the two instruments that correspond to our present violin and 'cello. On an old edition in Paris was found a reprint ot the programmes as they appeared when first printed in 1722; also a letter from Couperin, signed with his initials, in which he states that he himself had thought of ' sometime using or adding ' the very instruments that were already chosen for the present score. It was introduced by Mrs. Coolidge at the Berkshire Festival a year ago (in Pittsfield, Massachusetts), and has since been heard in New York several times. One notes, with some surprise, that the Minuet in this Suite is placed at the end. It seems more than probable that the audience danced after the concert was over.

Of the eight numbers forming Elgaes
'Nursery Suite' No. I . Aubade' is structurally the most important, for it is the longest and the most highly developed. The first section flows from a hymn tune ' Hear Thy Children gentle Jesus' that was written by the composer in his youth. The pieces that follow are all beautifully contrasted and in Elgar's most charming and fanciful vein. The last number hnvoy opens with an elaborate cadenza for solo violin. No fresh material is introduced, but instead both soloist and orchestra comment upon what has gone before, finally rounding off the whole work with a longish reference to the first number, ' Aubade '.
