London Pageant Bax

on National Programme Daventry

View in Radio Times

Tonight, after a most successful season at which the standard of performance' has maintained an extremely high level, the Proms come to an end, to give way to a winter season of public and studio concerts that promise to the music lover numerous good things in the form of well-known works and novelties. The chief characteristic of the programme this evening is the range and diversity of the items. There is something here for every taste-from those who like only what they know to those who take a serious interest in the latest musical developments. Of special interest will be the opportunity to hear again William Walton 's fine Sinfonia Concertante, and the first concert performance of Arnold Bax's 'London Pageant' will be no less welcome.
It is interesting to note that the city of London as a subject for tone poems is popular with some of our leading composers at the present time. In addition to this new work of Arnold Bax , the BBC announces in one of its symphony concerts a performance of John Ireland's ' A London Overture ', and the first per- formance in London of William Walton 's 'In Honour of the City of London'.
Tickets can be obtained from [address removed], and usual agents. Prices (including Entertainments Tax) : Is. 6d., 6s., 5s. (reserved), 3s. (unreserved), promenade (payment at doors only), 2s.
