The musical director, Mr. Robson, came to Leicester a year ago from the New Theatre, Cambridge. He toured as musical director with Lido Lady, Desert Song, and Rose Marie.

The Mozart Symphony in C major (K. 338) was one of three that he wrote at Salzburg in 1779-80, the period of his service with the Archbishop. In 1781 occurred the celebrated incident of the kicking of Mozart by the Archbishop's steward, in consequence of which he left Salzburg for ever.
This delightful work, one of the finest of all Mozart's earlier symphonies —'all air and fire ', as one critic has described it-was long unaccountably neglected, but is now an established favourite. The champagne-like sparkle of the first movement, the grace of the second and the fire of the third are unforgettable.

understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time
- not those of today.
