Second Symphony Concert of the Thirty-third
THE MUNICIPAL ORCHESTRA. conducted by Sir DAN GODFREY
ONE of Brahms's most intimate friends was the great violinist Joachim.
This Violin Concerto, the only one Brahms ever wrote, was dedicated to him. and Joachim, besides taking a great interest in its composition, and advising about some points of fiddle writing, himself wrote the. cadenzas for it.
Early Violin Concertos were not much more than means of display for the soloist. In this of Brahms the violinist is a partner with the Orchestra, bound up in the bundle of its life ; there is a perfect balance between the works of the two, and each contributes equally to the building up of the work.
There are three Movements : a fully-developed
Quick one, a serene Slow one. and an energetic Finale, in which we find some gay Hungarian colour.
' Fifty-nine years of Song Writing,' by FRED E. WEATHERLY , K.C.
FOR more than half a century the songs of Fred Weatherly have been household words. They are known wherever the English language is spoken. His recent book of recollections, ' Piano and Gown,' deals with his long and busy life as a song-writer and barrister, and Mr. Justice McCardie has written an eloquent preface describing it as a happy book by a happy man who has never grown old.' In the following lecture Mr. Weatherly tells how some of his songs came to be written, interspercing the vocal illustrations with chat and recitations.
The following songs will be used as illustrations :-
The words of the above songs are by the Lecturer, who will also recite his ' The Admiral's Yarn ' and ' Nini, Ninette, Ninon '
