' Dance Suite' by Eduard Kunneke for dance band and full orchestra
The special dance band
(Players: Dave Shand , Tiny Winters, George Firestone , Bert Read , Tommy McQuater , Archie Craig , George Chisholme , Norman Molony , Reg Leopold , Sid Colin , David Wilkins , and Billy Anstell ) and The BBC Theatre Orchestra
Leader, Tate Gilder will be conducted by Stanford Robinson
Stanford Robinson conducted the first performance in England of this 'Dance Suite" on April 23, 1936. It is written in the form of a concerto grosso for dance band and full orchestra, each combination skilfully 8etting off the tone and colour of the other. There are five movements: an Overture in foxtrot tempo, a Blues, an Intermezzo, a Valse mélancolique, and a Finale, again in foxtrot time. The dance element is very much in continental style, and is quite different from American jazz or swing music.

The first two movements of Vaughan Williams's Piano Concerto in C were sketched in 1926 and the third movement in 1930, but it was not until two or three years later that the work was completed, and in February, 1933, it was given its first performance at a BBC concert with Harriet Cohen as soloist. It is one of the finest works written for piano and orchestra by a British composer.
