Conductor, Sir Adrian Boult. Frederick Grinke (violin)
Violin Concerto in A (K.219) Mozart
Mozart's Violin Concerto No. 5, in A (K.219), is the fifth of six concertos written by him during 1775 and 1776. He was about twenty at the time of the first, and since he was then practising the violin hard-he was actually quite an accomplished player-it is presumed that he composed them as much for his own use as for use by others. This concerto is scored for small orchestra, two oboes, two horns, and strings, and the solo part is written with superb understanding of the genius of the instrument.

A special broadcast to mark the first day of the General Forces Programme, now linking listeners at home with the Forces overseas.
Throughout the war, radio has been the British serving man's constant link with home. Now that listeners in this country can share the Serviceman's programme, the link is strengthened by the knowledge that they are all listening together. From homes throughout the British Isles, relations and friends here tell the men overseas what the sharing of the General Forces Programme mean to them and to all listeners at home.
