This afternoon's concert features the famous Scottish Orchestra which was formed in 1891 for the purpose of organising and maintaining on a permanent basis a first-class orchestra that would be available for concerts throughout Scotland. The first conductor of this orchestra was Sir George Henschel (then Mr. Henschel), and the leader was Maurice Sons , who later became famous as principal of the Queen's Hall Orchestra.
Today the Scottish Orchestra can look back upon a great .tradition, not only of playing but of world-famous conductors and soloists who through the years, have associated themselves with this fine orchestra. The present leader,' David McCallum , was for several years Beecham's leader of the L.P.O.
This afternoon Warwick Braith waite, who is well known as one of the chief conductors of Sadler's Wells opera, conducts a programme which should appeal to all lovers of the best in orchestral music, for it shows the representative composers. Mendelssohn, Delius, Puccini, and Elgar. at their best.
