Glinka wrote the orchestral piece Kamarinskaya ' on two folk songs (a bridal song, and a snatch of gypsy dance melody from which the composition takes its name) in 1848 for the Governor of Warsaw's private orchestra. Glinka was the least self-conscious of geniuses (or almost-geniuses). In composing ' Kamarinskaya ' he had no aim deeper than the killing of boredom during an empty winter; actually, he was laying the foundation stone of Russian symphonic music.

(' Mail Coach ' was first broadcast on March 26, 1937)
This programme looks back to the time, just over a hundred years ago, when letters and passengers were conveyed by the mail-coach. Travel had an exciting side to it then, which for all the increased speed and comfort is to some extent missing in these days. Travel was jeopardised then by anything from bad weather to highwaymen, and even by the temperament of the coachmen.
