1. Jacob and Esau and Jacob's Dream
Our scene is an English garden on a summer afternoon. Two children, Jack and Prudence, are playing on he grass. Their happiness is clouded by the shadow of prep-or, to be precise, certain passages in the Book of Genesis. A helpful angel brings the scenes to life and the cloud passes.

Balakirev's symphonic poem, ' Russia ', was written to commemorate the millenary (in 1862) of the foundation of the Russian state. In a prefatory note, the composer explains that ' the work is based on three themes borrowed from my " Collection of Russian Folk Songs ", with which my idea was to characterise three elements of our history: paganism, the Muscovite military state ; and the element of the semi-dependent, semi-republican communities, later revived in the feudal organisations of the Cossacks '.
It will be remembered that William Walton's First Symphony began its career without a final movement, but despite this handicap-for the music is obviously conceived as an organic whole-it aroused great enthusiasm on its first performance by The London Symphony Orchestra under Sir Hamilton Harty in December, 1934, and again when it was done by the London Philharmonic Orchestra under Dr. Malcolm Sargent in April, 1935. The first performance of the complete symphony with its new Finale was given at a BBC Symphony Concert under Sir Hamilton Harty on November 6, 1935. This Finale is undoubtedly a great climax to a great work, which indicates yet another important landmark in the development of the modern British symphony.
