ISOLDE MENGES (violin) MAY MUKLE (violoncello) THE B.B.C. SYMPHONY
(Principal violin, CHARLES WOODHOUSE) Conducted by Sir HENRY WOOD
ISOLDE MENGES, MAY MUKLE AND
Concerto for Violin and Violoncello in A minor i. Allegro; 2. Andante; 3. Vivace non troppo
Symphony No. 2 in D i. Allegro non troppo; 2. Adagio non troppo; 3. Allegretto grazioso (Quasi andantino); 4. Allegro con spirito
In this symphony there are the usual tour movements, the first with two big main themes, both joyous in character, and with at least three less important melodies which are used in the most interesting way along with them. The slow movement begins with two themes at once, both played by the lower-toned instruments, with a middle section in the minor mode. The third movement is like a Scherzo with two Trios, and one very interesting feature of it is the way in which the first Trio is made of the same notes as the opening, in an entirely new rhythmic form. In the last movement the exultant happiness which has been heard almost all the way through rises to a still more emphatic note, and the movement is full of splendid and strenuous energy.
