Conductor, Guy Warrack from the Concert Hall, Empire
Individuality and technical mastery are apparent throughout the four movements of Goetz's Symphony in F. The fitness and general excellence of the orchestration suggest that the music was conceived orchestrally. In the first movement the style is essentially polyphonic, the very pleasing themes are short and terse and treated with great contrapuntal skill. The second movement is a delightful intermezzo based on two themes: first, a horn call, and second, an airy Mendelssohnian tune for wood-wind over an accompaniment for strings pizzicato, both of which are worked out in combination with considerable rhythmic interest. The slow movement is tranquil and thoughtful in mood, and the finale, a rondo, is a brilliant and high-spirited movement.
The music as a whole is very intimate, being almost chamber music in style, a fact that commends itself to microphone reproduction.

There have been a number of programmes reflecting the resemblance that different pieces of music bear to each other, but this is believed to be the first attempt to deal with lyrics in this way.
Jack Hill, who has arranged the programme, gave an example of his versatility when recently he wrote the music for and played syncopated piano pieces in a light production from the Midland studios, and then within half an hour was playing in a concerto, conducted by Sir Granville Bantock, at the Town Hall, Birmingham.
