Few programmes can be more popular to the large body of listeners than the programmes of light music devoted to the works of one composer, and of these, none can rival in appeal those devoted to the compositions of Sir Frederic Cowen. Eighty-one at the beginning of this year, Sir Frederic is still as young in spirit as the music which he will direct at this concert with his customary verve. Cowen was a conductor of great distinction before a great many of us were born. His triumphs include the old Promenades in Covent Garden, where he shared the rostrum with Sir Arthur Sullivan. As long as forty-five years ago he held the appointment of Conductor of the Royal Philharmonic Society, and he has held similar positions with the Halle Orchestra, Liverpool Philharmonic, Scottish Orchestra, Handel Festivals, and other important bodies, but it is for his compositions that we regard Sir Frederic Cowen as one of the most distinguished of living British musicians. He has composed a great deal, operas, oratorios, symphonies, and almost every form of composition, including, in particular, the songs which for fifty years have endeared his name to more than one generation of singers.
