Herbert Lodge began his musical career as a double-bass player. Having won a scholarship at the Royal Academy of Music at an early age, he studies under Charles Winterbottom. Before long he was playing in the Covent Garden Opera Orchestra and in 1919 he joined the London Symphony and Royal Philharmonic Orchestras. He has given double-bass recitals in London and the provinces and over the air. But like Koussevitzky, Lodge was not content to remain a double-bassist ; he aspired to the baton. Even at eighteen he was conducting an amateur operatic society ; during the War he ran a symphony orchestra of his own ; in 1929 he succeeded Bainbridge Robinson as musical director of the Margate Municipal Orchestra.

Gladys Palmer (contralto)
Chaykovsky's ' Casse-noisette ' (Nutcracker). Suite contains some of the daintiest ballet music ever written. The whole work is, of course, much longer than the Suite, which contains only some of the best numbers, and lasts for a considerable time when presented on the stage.
The story of the ballet is taken from E. T. A. Hoffmann's fantastic fairy-tale ' Nutcracker and the Mouse-King '—this Hoffmann being the Hoffmann of Offenbach's opera.
The complete ballet was first produced in St. Petersburg in 1892, and is now in the repertoire of the Vic-Wells Ballet. The Suite was introduced to England by Sir Henry Wood at a Promenade Concert in 1896. GLADYS PALMER
