THE WIRELESS SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA
(Leader, S. KNEALE KELLEY ) Conducted by EDWARD CLARK pPOKOFIEF, born in 1891, is one of the younger band of Russian composers. His frequent use of repeated rhythmic figures. instead' of "development ' of themes in the older manner, is characteristic of much modern music.
The title of his Classical Symphony (written in 1916-17) denotes that we are to have a new view of eighteenth-century style and form. as it appeals to the mind of a highly original twentieth-century Composer. The music is very clear and easy to follow. There are four Movements.
The FIRST MOVEMENT used the orthodox two Main Tunes, the First opening at once, on the Violins, and the Second also being heard from the same instrument.
(This can be recognized by its big leaps of two -octaves and its run downstairs, taking several steps at a leap.)
The SECOND MOVEMENT is a slow one. Its one Main Tune appears several times, with episodes in between.
The THIRD MOVEMENT is a Gavotte, instead of the Minuet almost invariably found in the older Symphony. Strings and Woodwind play the very short first section. Then Flutes and Clarinets have a middle section, and the first- part is repeated.
The FINALE is a very lively dance. Strings open the ball, and the Woodwind has the Second
The Story of Samson-Judges. eh. xiv, 1-20, xv, 1-6, xvi, 4-31
