Councillor Gerald W. Crawford , J.P., is a prominent figure in Edinburgh's musical life, particularly as conductor of the Edinburgh Professional Orchestra. His compositions include several operas, symphonies, suites, and rhapsodies. The score of ' Macbeth,' a symphonic poem after Shakespeare's play, contains a number of quotations that act as a rough guide to the music. These appear in the following order : (1) ‘ When shall we three meet again ; in thunder, lightning, or in rain ' ; (2) ' What's the business, that such a hideous trumpet call to parley ' ; (3) ' Fair is foul, and foul is fair ; hover through the fog and filthy air ' ; (4) ' All hail, Macbeth, thou shalt be King hereafter ' ; (5) ' Glamis thou art, and Cawdor, and shalt bo what thou art promis'd. Yet do I fear thy nature ' ; (6) ' I go, and it is done ; the bell invites me. Hear it not Duncan ; for it is a knel! that summons thee to Heaven or Hell ' ; (7) ' I have done the deed. Didst thou hear a noise ? ' ; (8) Methought I heard a voice cry, sleep no more ! Macbeth does murder sleep -the innocent sleep ' ; (9) ' Here lies Duncan, his silvery skin lac'd with his golden blood.'

Alexander Tansman was born in Poland in 1900 but now lives in Paris. He has a considerable quantity of compositions to his credit, including piano pieces and orchestral works, all of which are decidedly modern in style and express a strong individuality. His ' Triptyque ' for string orchestra is free from silly eccentricities and is rhythmically vigorous and definitely melodious in a straightforward manner. Although the composer exploits atonality he does so with excellent effect.
There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a
historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any
given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the
understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time
- not those of today.
