Jack Simpson and his Sextet
Jack Simpson , who formed his Sextet in May 1940. joined the Royal Dragoon Guards when he was fifteen and was the youngest mounted drummer in the Army. With the Horse Guards Band he used to appear in the Lord Mayor's shows and all the Tattoos. After twelve years' service, he took up dance-band music as a career, and has played drums, tympani, and xylophone with almost all the leading dance bands.
Conducted by Clarence Raybould
Philip Sainton 's symphonic poem ' The Island ' was composed in 1939. The opening passage on an unaccompanied trumpet represents the rocks' challenge to the sea. The composer depicts the Island on a warm and lethargic spring day, in summer's glory, on the approach of winter, and in the storm. Throughout the work the opening phrase recurs. The Island is small, and on its shores pine trees grow down to the great rocks. The music is not intended to be pictorial but it is impressionistic. It represents the emotional effect of the scenery and of the varying lights on the composer.
Sainton is principal viola of the BBC
Symphony Orchestra and he has dedicated this work to his colleague, Ernest Hall , principal trumpet.

Sonata No. 3, in G sharp minor played by Reginald Paul (piano)
Sir Arnold Bax is one of the two or three foremost composers for the piano in Britain. He writes with great understanding and effect for the instrument, and this is shown to the full in this Sonata, written in 1925. As a key to Bax's music it is interesting to note that he has confessed that he is ' a brazen romantic-hy which I mean that my music is the expression of emotional states. I have no interest whatever in sound for its own sake or in any modernist 'isms or factions
