Eduard Strauss was the youngest son of the first (Donaulieder) Johann, and brother of the second (Blue Danube) Johann. Like all the members of his celebrated family he wrote. waltzes, of which this one, Doclrinen, is now the most popular. When Johann first went on tour with his band, Eduard took his place as conductor of the court balls at St. Petersburg. Later, however, he in turn formed his own band and toured Europe with it. Vienna, of course, was the chief scene of his triumphs, though he was a terrific attraction wherever he and his band performed. He came to London in 1885, and gave daily concerts at the Inventions Exhibition. His success was sensational... He composed not Jess than 200 pieces of dance music, all of which were published.
Conductor, Sir HUGH S. ROBERTON

Sir Hugh Roberton—he was knighted last year
-has been the conductor of the Glasgow Orpheus Choir since 1906, the year in which he founded it. It is one of the best-known Choirs in the British Isles, and all the credit that can possibly attach to a conductor apart from his forces is due to Roberton. Sir Hugh was born in Glasgow, and has been connected with the music of that city all his life, beginning as a church-choir trainer, and achieving his ambition with his present choir. Besides this, he was one of the pioneers of the Competition Festival Movement in Scotland, and from the start his gifts as an adjudicator have been in incessant demand, while for two years now he has made a tour of the Canadian Competition Festivals as a guest adjudicator and adviser. But he is not only a conductor, adjudicator, and composer; he is also a lecturer, journalist, and author. In these capacities he handles a pen with all the delicate shades of expression, and all the humour, with which he swings a baton. The Cockle Gatherer (Songs of the Hebrides)

- not those of today.
