Duo in A, Op. 162 played by Frederick Grinke (violin) and Kendall Taylor (piano)
Schubert's Duo, or Sonata, Op. 162, dates from 1817, the composer's twentieth year. Like the later ' Trout Quintet, it shows him adopting a brilliant style-prevalent in most of his later chamber music with piano—that differentiates it markedly from Beethoven's instrumental works, which otherwise were his favourite models. The Duo is a most attractive work, brimming over with unmistakably Schubertian melody.

Regarding Handel's Water Music : King George I expressed a wish for a concert to be arranged on the Thames, for which Handel was to supply the music. This was done and the concert was a great success. The river was crowded with barges, and afterwards there was a grand supper at Lord Ranelagh's house at Chelsea, wheft the King commanded it to be repeated once before and once after supper. Each performance took an hour, so that the King did not get back to St. James till half-past four the next morning.
The suite to be heard this afternoon is an arrangement by the late Sir Hamilton Harty of some of the numbers from the complete Water Music.

Symphony No. 2, in D minor :
'played by the BBC Scottish Orchestra. Conductor, Ian Whyte
Dvorak's Symphony No. 2 in D minor, really the seventh of his symphonies, was composed in 1883-85 for the Royal Philharmonic Society Dvorak came to London to conduct the first performance in April 1885.
It is a magnificent work, a finer achievement than the better-known Fourth and Fifth, (' New World ') Symphonies. It shows Dvorak in a serious mood, and in intellectual power it bears an affinity to the symphonies of Brahms.
