Isidore Schwiller was a student at the London Academy of Music, and afterwards studied the violin under Wilhelmj in London and Cesar Thomson in Brussels. He joined the Royal Carl Rosa Opera Company when he was seventeen, and stayed with them for seven years. He then became a member of the Queen's Hall Orchestra, and four years later conducted the Beecham Opera Company for two tours. Schwiller produced the Vaughan Williams Quartet for the first time in 1911 and has always had a flair for introducing new works.

From a farmsteading' in the North-
East of Scotland
This week's programme of genuinely Scottish fare for listeners North of the Tweed should also have a curiosity value for the Sassenach. The microphone is going out to a bothy at a farmsteading in the North-East. of Scotland for one of the roistering, unsophisticated, good-humoured concerts where farm workers make merry. They have gathered to celebrate the harvest home, and this is an occasion for such rejoicing as the poor townsman has small opportunity of enjoying, even though he is surrounded by cinemas, theatres, dance halls, and every type of sophisticated amusement.

The Faithful Sentinel
Schubert's opera from which this overture is taken was broadcast from Belfast in 1929, with a new libretto and with the score revised and edited by Professor Donald Tovey. The music was composed by Schubert in his sixteenth year, and already his great gift of melody is abundantly manifest in this jolly little opera of sentiment.
The history of Honegger's ' Pastorale d'ete ' is curious. A Marmande violin maker, Leo Sir , had constructed six new instruments-from a ' sub-double bass' to a ' super-soprano violin '—which with the four normal members of the string group would form a novel sort of ' dixtet'. Honegger was invited to write a composition for this combination and sketched out a Pastoral, only to abandon it owing to its unsuitability for strings.
He finally wrote a fresh work,
' Hymnus ', for Sir's ' dixtet' and remodelled the Pastoral for string quintet, four solo woodwind, and a horn. Embellished with a quotation from Rimbaud—' I have embraced the summer dawn '-this charmingly idyllic little work won immediate popularity with its first performance on February 17, 1921, under Vladimir Golschmann. ,
' Haffner' Symphony
Mozart's so-called ' Haffner' Symphony, No. 35, in D, originated in a serenade composed in 1782 at his father's request for. a festivity at the house of his Salzburg friends, the. Haffners. It was written in great haste ; so great that when his father returned the score to him Mozart was ' quite surprised' at its effectiveness.
The six-movement Serenade was cut down to a symphony the following year by the omission of the introductory march and one of the minuets, leaving four movements, but the serenade-like character of part of the finale reminds one of the origin of the work.
