Duke Ellington, the famous American coloured dance-band leader and composer/arranger, is now on his first visit to this country, under the auspices of Jack Hylton. Tonight listeners all over the country are enabled to hear the first direct broadcast of this famous band from the studio in England. A relay of the band from New York was included in the Birthday Week programmes last November. Ellington has a dual title to fame: his original orchestrations and arrangements for the dance music played by his band, and his original compositions in the jazz idiom, notably Creole Rhapsody, Mood Indigo, and Hot and Bothered.

Sinfonie Singuliere .............. Fr. Berwald
1. Allegro fuocoso; 2. Adagio, Scherzo: Allegro assai Adagio ; 3. Finale : Presto
The Berwald family, a large one, was musically important in Stockholm in the first half of last century. Two members stood out above the others-Johann, a violinist, who was famous all over Europe at the age of ten, and had three daughters, all singers of repute; and Franz Adolf , Johann's nephew, the composer of this symphony. In his youth, Franz went to Vienna and acquired a reputation as a composer. Ho might have had a like early success in Stockholm if his uncle had been a better conductor, and he was past fifty before his native city had got his true measure.
Johan Severin Svendsen , the Scandinavian composer who figures in the programmes of orchestral concerts mainly with his Norwegian Rhapsodies, of which he wrote four, the brilliant Carnival in Paris, and his Romance, beloved of violinists, was born in 1840 and died in 1911. He was the son of a military bandmaster, and was, in his turn, an army bandmaster before he was twenty. He left. the army at twenty-one, and for the rest of his life held many distinguished posts in Germany and Scandinavia, both as conductor and teacher. He was in England in 1888 conducting one of his Symphonies at a Philharmonic Concert.
