Leader, PHILIP WHITEWAY
Conducted by ERNEST A. A. STONELEY Julius Rontgen, although a Dutchman by ancestry, was born in Leipzig, where his father was leader of the Gewandhaus Orchestra, then, 1855, at the height of its fame as one of the world's foremost concert organisations. Since his twenty-second year Rontgen lived in Amsterdam, taking a leading part in its musical life, as pianist, teacher, and conductor, and for some years as Principal of its Conservatoire. He died a year or two ago. Best known by his chamber music, he has composed much in the larger forms, including opera. None of his music is modern in the advanced sense of the word, although he was strongly influenced by the prevailing fashion for folk music. In his Suite of old Dutch Dances he has collected a number of old folk-tunes of the Netherlands and set them in the form of a very attractive orchestral suite. Adam Carse is held in high esteem by ; music teachers for the way in which he has enriched the repertoire of teaching music. He has also produced important works in many forms, and a number of his bigger orchestral pieces have earned cordial recognition
