The Royal Water Music
Handel, transcribed Hamilton Harty
Symphony No. 4, in D minor
Schumann, new edition by Hamilton Harty
The Royal Water Music was composed by Handel to entertain King George I on the occasion of a fete given on the Thames at which the royal barge was rowed in procession up the river to Chelsea. Handel served the English king in two capacities, first in Hanover, where George was Elector, and later in England when he was made king.
There has always been controversy about
Schumann's competence to orchestrate his own symphonies. Many musicians have felt that the finely conceived music has not its full chance against the somewhat crude scoring. Yet, until recent times it has been thought sacrilege even to suggest the remedy of re-scoring the works. Sir Hamilton Harty , however, has in this case, as always, the full courage of his convictions.

The first of a new series in which Commander
King-Hall, representing the man in the street, will cross-examine an economic expert on questions of the hour. Commander King-Hall needs no introduction to listeners : his genius for explaining world affairs is acknowledged by junior and senior listeners alike, while his naval career and play successes fit him to represent the inquiring layman. Mr. N. F. Hall is a well-known economist with English and American qualifications and experience.
