Tchaikovsky's Third Symphony
The London Symphony Orchestra, conducted by Albert Coates : Symphony No. 3, in D (Tchaikovsky)—1. Introduzione e allegro moderate assai, Allegro brillante ; 2. Alia Tedesca , 3. Andante elegiaco; 4. Scherzo and Trio ; 5. Finale
Tchaikovsky's Third Symphony is not nearly so well known as the three which followed it. But, like all his symphonies, it has a definite character of its own. Coming next after the one known as the ' Little Russian ', in which national characteristics are freely exploited, it is rather like a reaction from exclusively Russian ideals. It is often thought to owe a great deal to the lively interest which Tchaikovsky had just begun to take in Schumann's music. It has, none the less, something national in its make-up which has earned it the name 'The Polish '.

Sir Granville Bantock , whose musical tastes and tendencies are far more catholic and progressive than many another musician half his age, is not blind to the fact that the brass band movement of today is as weighty an influence in the cause of national music as is almost any other active movement. He was made aware that what the brass bands lacked more than any other thing they could think of was a new and dignified repertory, necessary in order to arouse a new interest in the players and to raise the prestige of brass bands. Bantock, therefore, in company with a few other distinguished British composers, has written works for exclusive performance by brass bands-original works and not transcriptions from something Written originally for orchestra.
This work, Overture ' King Lear ', was composed for Callender's Band a short time ago, and has been broadcast by them more than once recently. It is, by the way, not an easy work; Bantock has made no technical concessions whatever, and has thereby paid the Band one of the most acceptable of the many compliments they have received.
Presented by AUSTEN CROOM-JOHNSON It is pleasant at the end of the year to go back over the months and hear once again things that pleased us, and this is the idea behind this reminiscent programme.
In January listeners heard
Elisabeth Welch singing ' So Shy', and this evening they are to hear her again.
'Dinah', arranged for two violins by Eric Siday , is the memento for February, whilst for April listeners are to hear the irresistible ' Tiptoe Through the Tulips ', which was the first broadcast of Quentin Maclean in Soft Lights and Sweet Music.
In May ' Limehouse Blues ', by the late Philip Braham , was given in memory of this popular composer, and it will be broadcast in dedication to him again tonight. There was no broadcast in June, but ' June Night, the Moonlight, the Roses, and You ' will be given in memory of the month that was missed.
Eric Siday 's ' The Fountain ' is the feature for July, and so on. Austen Croom-Johnson will play the piano solo ' Best Black' to represent the last broadcast in November. And finally there is to be a big surprise.

Here is an unusual broadcast, for both the Quintets associated with Leslie Bridgewater are contributing to the same programme.
The Leslie Bridgewater Quintet is the one more usually heard; the instruments in it are a quartet of strings and the . pianoforte, which is Mr. Bridgewater's own instrument. The Leslie Bridgewater Harp Quintet, which though less heard, is always welcome, is composed of wood-wind instruments and a harp.
Practically all the music played by these combinations is specially arranged by Leslie Bridgewater, whose care in selecting appropriate programmes and whose enthusiasm for finding new music and unearthing interesting, and often uncommonly beautiful, otd music is one of the most attractive things about his broadcasts.
