THE repertory of pieces written specially for the Military Band used to be sadly scanty.
Now, more good composers are writing a little for it, and there is plenty of room for more first-class music written by men who have something to say-who know how to write for Wind without being windy.
Hoist has contributed a couple of capital Suites. This one contains three pieces—(1) a vigorous
Chaconne (a piece in which one bit of tune is repeated over and over again in the bass, occasionally in other parts) ; (2) an expressive Intermezzzo ; and (3) a lively March.

From Birmingham BIRMINGHAM STUDIO AUGMENTED ORCHESTRA
Conducted by JOSEPH LEWIS
THIS Concerto by Bach comes nearer than many of the older Concertos to the modern form in which a soloist (two in this case) plays u conspicuous part on an orchestral background.
It consists of three Movements :—
FIRST MOVEMENT. A Quick Movement in which the two Pianos are played mostly in a kind of dialogue.
SECOND MOVEMENT. A Slow Movement for the Pianos only.
THIRD MOVEMENT. A Fugue written on a bright Tune. In- this vigorous Movement the instruments enter in turn, first one Piano, then the second Piano, then the stringed instruments working downwards.
There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a
historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any
given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the
understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time
- not those of today.
