THE PORTLAND STRING QUARTET:
Alan Bartlett (Violin); Ralph Nichol son (Violin); Violet Brough (Viola); Barbara Amor-Wright (Violoncello) 1. The four sleepy golliwogs' dance.-The golliwogs-poor, stiff things !- hated dancing; and t hey were so sleepy! But some horrid, spiteful ' Magician' goaded them with sharp words and a prickly fork. So they danced as best they could, bowed, and ran away.
2. The little girl and the old shepherd.-In the fields and woods the little girl had little else to think of than the flowers and the solitary old shepherd who, among his flocks close by, piped the only scraps of tune he cared for. She often pitied his loneliness.
3. The old shepherd's tale.-Once the old shepherd told her a. tale-of himself years ago, and of his friends. He was not always slow-going and lonely.

THE B.B.C. ORCHESTRA
(Led by LAURANCE TURNER )
Conducted by NIKOLAI MALKO
Nikolai Malko made his first appearance in England with the B.B.C. Orchestra four years ago. He comes to us from Russia, where he is Director of the State Academy of Music and Professor at the Leningrad Conservatoire. His activities, however, are not confined to Russia, for he makes frequent welcome appearances in various cities of Europe. His most recent appearances in London have been early last year at a B.B.C. Symphony Concert and a Concert of Contemporary Music, both of which were broadcast.
Shostakovitch is considered the leader of the younger Russian composers known as the Leningrad group, the members of which ally themselves to the tradition upheld by Rimsky-Korsakov. He has written, amongst other works, two symphonies; a dance tune called ' The Tahiti Trot,' which really is a transcription of the celebrated ' Tea for Two ' ; and an opera, founded on Gogol's humorous story ' The Nose,' from which the Suite now to be played is drawn.
