Symphony No. II, in A Minor (Norwich)
Andante maestoso, Allegro molto ; Andante con moto ; Allegro scherzando; Andante marcato, Allegro molto
SIR EDWARD GERMAN'S second symphony takes its name from the fact that it was produced at the Norwich Triennial Musical Festival on October 4, 1893. Since then it has received many performances in various parts of the country-including Crystal Palace Saturday
Concerts (conductor, Sir August Manns), Royal Philharmonie Society, London (conductor, Sir Alexander Mackenzie ), twice by the Halle Orchestra in Manchester and Liverpool respectively (conductor, Sir Charles Hall é), Bournemouth Symphony Concerts (conductor, Sir Dan Godfrey ), etc.
The work has only just been published, and consists of the usual four movements, the first and last being each preceded by an introduction in slow time. It is purely abstract music, and depends for its understanding on the somewhat elaborate development of the various tbomes and subjects set forth. It is only necessary, therefore, to give the titles of the movements : (1) Andante maestoso, Allegro molto, (2) Andante con moto, (3) Allegro scherzando, (4)' Andante marcato, allegro molto. There is but little Old English idiom in the work—such as one would associate with its composer. It is built rather on classical lines. But Sir Edward himself confesses that in the third movement, allegro scherzando, he is thoroughly enjoying himself on his native heath.
His first symphony (No. 1 in E
Minor) was produced at the Crystal Palace Saturday Concerts on December 13, 1890.

BINA ADDY (Contralto)
MISS BINA ADDY belongs to a Bengali family of Calcutta, and was born and educated there, studying singing there, too, with such success that Europeans who heard her always asked how long she had been abroad, and in what music-schools she had been trained. On her way to this country she spent eight months in Rome, studying and giving three concerts. The Italians, Press and public, made much of her, and the news of her success was re- corded in many of the Indian papers. That was two years ago, but Miss Addy still looks back on her stay in Rome as one of the happiest in her life. Since then her voice and her cultured singing have won her many admirers even further from her native country, and the B.B.C.'s listeners have already had an opportunity of agreeing with the early verdicts of Calcutta and of Rome.
