Henri Rabaud , a pupil of Massenet and winner of the Prix de Rome in 1894, became director of the Paris Conservatoire when Faure retired in 1920. He had previously held conducting posts at the Opera-Comique and Opera in Paris, and just after the war he spent a year in America as conductor of the Boston Symphony Orchestra.
Most of his works have been written for the stage, the most successful being the comic opera Marouf, on a story from the ' Arabian Nights '. His only chamber compositions are two early works: a String Quartet in G minor, Op. 3, and this ' Andante and Scherzetto '.

A broadcast describing the activities of The London Ambulance Service from
An Ambulance Station
County Hall, Westminster and A London Street
Every day there are scores of street accidents in London. Every day the slick white ambulances of the L.C.C. service are rushed North, South. East, and West, with clanging bells, to collect casualties and take them to the various hospitals. Tonight's programme is an effort to reconstruct the story behind a single street casualty, and to show how it is dealt with by the ambulance men. Microphones will be placed by the telephone switchboard of the County Hall, to which all calls in connection with the ambulance service come through, at the ambulance station at the Elephant and Castle, and in a street near the Waterloo Hospital, where the ' accident' has taken place. Messrs. Woodrooffe, Standing, and Snagge, respectively, will be at these various points to give listeners an account of what is going on.
