Mozart's so-called ' Haffner' Symphony originated in a serenade composed in 1782 at his father's request for a festivity at the house of his
Salzburg friends, the Haffners. It was written in great haste; so great, that when his father returned the score to him, Mozart was quite surprised ' at its effectiveness
The six-movement Serenade was cut down to a symphony the following year by the omission of the introductory march and one of the minuets, but the serenade-like character of part of the finale reminds one of the origin of the work.

The history of Borodin's Second Symphony is closely linked with that of his opera Prince Igor. The first ideas for the symphony occurred to him early in 1869, but in April of that year Stassov suggested the opera subject to him, and for a time he devoted all his energies to Igor. Then he decided (temporarily) that the subject was unsuitable. ' Don't worry about it ', he wrote to Stassov. 'The material won't be wasted. It will all go into my Second Symphony.'
Accordingly the first movement of the symphony was written in 1871. During the period 1874-76 he was working at both opera and symphony, and the last two movements of the symphony were based on themes originally intended for an epilogue to Igor.
' L'Art de Dire '
Madame Yvette Guilbert is on one of her periodic visits to this country, and, as on previous occasions, will take the opportunity to broadcast. As a diseuse she is internationally famous, and her conception of ' Vart de dire', for which there is no satisfactory translation in English, may fairly be described as unique. Today's broadcast is the first of the new weekly series of French Talks and Readings, and it may be considered fortunate that it is being given by someone who has so complete an understanding of the spoken word. Madame Yvette Guilbert will be introduced at the microphone by E. M. Stephan.
