Haydn wrote twelve symphonies in all for Salomon, the impresario who brought him to London-six on the first visit in 1791 and six on the second in 1794. They are acknowledged to be the finest of all Haydn's
[Home Service continued overleaf hundred odd symphonies, and it is pleasant to reflect that London's hospitality was the occasion of Haydn's surpassing himself.
For some unknown reason, the No. 104 in D, the second of the Salomon symphonies, is known as the ' London ' Symphony. It represents Haydn at his greatest as a symphonist, and it may well be compared, with most of the others of this series, with the best symphonies of Mozart.

A radio biography written and produced by Denis Johnston with Frank Cellier as Lord Palmerston
To have been a contemporary of both Napoleon and Abraham Lincoln seems almost impossible, yet by a rough generalisation the span of years between Trafalgar and Gettysburg was the term of office of Lord Palmerston. This light-hearted Irish peer, who lived from 1784 to 1865, played the game of ' high policy' in Europe through the long peace of the mid-nineteenth century and bequeathed as his legacy to the Foreign Office the phrase ' Civis Britannicus sum '.
Air Commodore R. V. Goddard,
Schumann's Kreisleriana (Op. 16)
' Johannes Kreisler Kapellmeister ' was a fictitious figure created in 1814 by the German romantic novelist E. T. A. Hoffmann (himself a composer of some merit), in a story called ' Kreisleriana ' and afterwards used by him as a mouthpiece for his musical criticisms. Kreisler, a grotesque figure, half genius, half lunatic, was a sort of exaggerated personification of the German romantic view of music during the first half of the last century, and was, to many German musicians of the period, the fantastic embodiment of a high ideal.
These pieces of Schumann's, written about 1839, aptly suggest
Kreisler's dreams and fancies, his wild rhapsodies, and his bitter epigrams.
