Ballet music: Rosamunde Symphony from Op. 140â€”Grand
Duo (Orchestrated by Anthony Collins) played by London Symphony Orchestra
Leader, George Stratton
Conducted by Sir Adrian Boult
Schubert's Grand Duo for two pianos was written in the summer of 1824. Conceived on a large scale, it lends itself to orchestral treatment. The famous Hungarian composer and violinist, Joseph Joachim, scored the Duo for orchestra, and in this version it used to be often performed. Anthony Collins's version is, however, more in keeping with the true spirit of Schubertâ€”the Schubert of the ' Unfinished ' and the C major Symphonies.

A comedy by Mabel Constanduros and Howard Agg
The action takes place on a fine summer's morning before the war
Produced by Mary Allen
After the serious note struck by Mabel Constanduros and Howard Agg in their last radio play, these popular authors have reverted to comedy. Uncle Gabriel is the story of what happened one summer's day to a little man who travelled in cheese. It is after the manner of The Lady from Abroad, which was so successful that it was pubtished immediately and has already been broadcast in Canada. The part of the little cheese-traveller was written for Richard Goolden , and should be one of Mr. Chips-Meek-Penny's most popular characters.
Yet another new play by these successful collaborators, The Laughing Mirror, is shortly to be broadcast.
