NORTHERN ORCHESTRA
(Leader, ALFRED BARKER )
Conductor, T. H. MORRISON
French Suites
Andre Messager, known to us in this country as the composer of The Little Michus and of Veronique, is the last of the long line of French comic opera composers whose music really preserves qualities worthy to be dignified by the name ' Opera '. He was a pupil of Saint-Saens, and in every way a worthy pupil. All his music has not merely charm and . sparkling grace, but a dignity and style which tempt one to call him the aristocrat of the comic opera stageThe Suite, The Two Pigeons, is a ballet in six movements, of which this is the third.
