GLAZOUNOV (bom in 1865) is probably the most distinguished living Russian composer who does not work on very advanced ' modernist' lines.
Ho is a master of orchestral effect, and in his ballets and other light pieces he has produced music that follows very agreeably, yet with distinct individuality of its own, in the Tchaikovsky tradition.
The Seasons, a Suite of orchestral pieces (now to be heard in an arrangement for Military Band), was originally written for a Ballet. We are to hear—(1) Barcarolle awl' Variations ; (2) Waltz of the Poppies and Cornflowers ; (3) Slow Movement ; (4) Bacchanal. 4.12 LIONEL TERTIS and CECIL Dixon (Pianoforte)

PUGENE ONEGIN , the libretto of which was written by the celebrated Russian poet Pushkin, was first performed in 1879 by the students of tho Moscow Conservatory. The plot concerns the Jove of the rakish Eugene Onegin for the innocent, sentimental Tatiana, whose sister Olga is betrothed to Lenski, Onegin's friend. When Tatiana foolishly writes Onegin a love letter (the letter scene is a favourite, concert air), the modish fellow is offended. At a ball he flirts with Olga. Lenski is resentful, and challenges his friend to a duel. Lenski is killed. Years later, the remorseful Oncgin meets Tatiana, now the wife of a prince, and makes love to her, but she, after doubting her feelings, sends him sorrowing away.
The Opera is not heard in England now, but some of the dance music is fairly often played, notably the Waltz which we are to hear.
