Like so many other exponents of light music, Lionel Falkman had a classical training. His parents made sacrifices so that he could study the violin under Leopold Auer and Kalman Ronay , and at the age of seventeen he was musician enough to be first violin in the New Symphony Orchestra under Landon Ronald and first violin in the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra.
His Apache Band specialises in the music typical of the Montmartre of happier days.

Institute of District Nursing, by Ellaline Terriss (Lady Seymour Hicks )
The Queen's Institute of District Nursing, founded by Queen Victoria, of which Queen Mary is now patron, trains nurses to visit patients in their own homes in Great Britain and Ireland. It has been doing this work for fifty-theee years. Today 4,543 Queen's nurses and nearly 3,000 village and nurse-midwives are working under affiliated asociations throughout the country. These nurses are very hard worked in wartime because they are looking after patients evacuated from civilian hospitals to make room for war casualties, evacuated children sent to reception areas, and the families of men who have been called away to the fighting services.

Delius was greatly attracted by the theme of James Elroy Flecker 's Hassan, and as a result he undertook to write incidental music fur the play. In 1923 the play was beautifully staged by Basil Dean at His Majesty's Theatre and had a run of 281 performances.
The Serenade is one of the many striking numbers from Delius's exquisite music which has been made into a concert suite by his friend and amanuensis, Eric Fenby.
Kodak's short orchestral work
' Summer Evening ' dates from 1906, when he was twenty-four years old. He was not altogether satisfied with the work, and after its first performance he laid it aside. Later, however, he was encouraged to remould it, and the score bears a Latin dedication ' to Arturo Toscanini , who time after time urged me onward '.
