A LIGHT SYMPHONY CONCERT
BEING THE FIRST OF A SERIES OF CONCERTS GIVEN BY ARTISTS RESIDING in THE NORTH OF ENGLAND
THE AUGMENTED STATION ORCHESTRA
Conducted by T. H. MORRISON
THIS Overture reminds us of the sombre side of the story of Don Juan. Its slow
Introduction utilizes themes associated in the Opera with the statue of the man he has murdered (which comes to life and drags him down to hell). The atmosphere of strangeness and fear is created by striking yet simple means.
The main body of the Overture suggests the Don's delight in amorous adventure. At the end the excitement dies down, and the way is prepared for the serious events of the Opera's First Act.
THE famous Nocturne is called for by, Titania to lull to sleep the poor weary mortals, victims of the fairies' tricks, and the Scherzo conjures up memories of the pranksome Puck and the rest of the fairy band.

THIS Symphony is in four Movements. The First and Last are quite vigorous, and have delightful touches of humour. There is the usual Minuet as Third Movement, and instead of a slow Second Movement, we have one of the most delicious, care-free little pieces imaginable.
