Symphony No. 8, In F played by BBC Orchestra (Section B)
Leader, Paul Beard
Conductor, Sir Adrian Boult
Beethoven himself called the Eighth Symphony a ' little symphony ' and although it is imbued from first to last with gay spirits and is almost as light in texture as a Haydn or Mozart symphony, it was no great success when it was first performed.

Listeners can depend on a romantic atmosphere and background in any programme devised by the deviser of ' The Table under the Tree', especially when it is to be performed by so gifted and cosmopolitan a cast.
with Dorothy Carless, Len Camber, Jackie Hunter, and George Evans
