from the Savoy Hotel, London
Arthur Salisbury started to learn the violin when seven and a half years old. He studied under Senor Gomez and Professor Melzak until he was fifteen, when he passed through the Royal Academy of Music with distinction. After the war he continued to study under Melzak. In 1920 he met de Groot, became his leader, and stayed with him for six years. This introduced him to restaurant work, particularly through the Piccadilly Hotel.
Salisbury formed his six-piece light orchestra, and opened at Verrey's Restaurant, Regent Street, where he remained for three years, giving a broadcast almost every week. He ultimately moved to the Savoy, where he has been for the last nine years.

' One of the minor poets of music, Lyadov remains one of the most lovable ', writes M. D. Calvocoressi. That phrase sums him up perfectly, both as artist and as man. Lyadov's music is poetic, charming, piquant, never ' big stuff '-but never swollen. exaggerated, or overstrained.
One of the most charming of men,
Lyadov was fatally handicapped by typically Russian indolence, and his output was comparatively small. For years he was supposed to be composing a fairy-tale opera, Zoryushka, but all that appeared of it was two or three charming fragments for orchestra, of which ' The Enchanted Lake ' is one.

Conducted by Boyd Neel
Boyd Neel has had an interesting career. Born in London thirty-one years ago, Boyd Neel began as a medical student at Caius College, Cambridge, finally taking his medical degrees and becoming house surgeon at St. George's Hospital, where he remained for four years. His great hobby was music, and in an amateur capacity he sang in opera and played the clarinet. Finally, the call of music became too strong, and he resigned his post at St. George's and went to Munich and Salzburg to study his new profession. In 1933 he returned to England and formed his own orchestra, which consists for the most part of young and keen musicians.
