Toxi FARRELL (Songs at the Piano)
THE STATION MILITARY BAND
Conducted by E. GODFREY BROWN -RUSSIAN music has formed so large a share of the Concert programmes of the whole world for the past two generations, that it is difficult to realize how recent a growth it is. But, except for folk music, in which it always was specially rich, Russia had no music of its own, broadly speaking, until Glinka founded the national school which has since given us so much that we value and enjoy.
A Life for the Czar, his first opera, which was also the first real Russian opera, was produced in 1836 and was an immediate success, the vigour and freshness of its music and the strongly national appeal of the story alike winning popularity and affection. It immediately made it clear that a new Russian school of music had been born. The story is on a patriotic subject, dealing with a revolt by the people against their sovereign, which is eventually overcome.
OF Sir Edward German 's purely orchestral music, this lVel8h Rhapsody is easily the best known.
Specially composed for the Cardiff Festival of 1904 and produced there. it. has ever since figured constantly in programmes wherever the best British music is played. It is built up on four traditional Welsh tunes ; the opening section is based on ' Loudly proclaim.' The second part, corresponding to the Scherzo movement of a symphony, is vivacious and merry, in 6-8 rhythm, on the tune Hunting the Hare.' A slow section comes next, founded on that beautiful old tune 'David of the White Rock.' The last section is a stirring exposition of the fine march, ' The Men of Harlech.'
