THE AUGMENTED STATION ORCHESTRA, conducted by T. H. MORRISON
THIRST MOVEMENT (Moderately quick).—
-*- After a preliminary nourish on the Piano, the First Main Tune is given out. It consists chiefly of a little curt phrase in Woodwind, and a more suave phrase, which is at first given to Clarinet and Bassoon, and then repeated at great length. This whole (fairly long) Tune is repeated on the Piano. Then follows a longish passage of rapid work for the Piano and Strings and Woodwind. At the end of this there is something of a climax, and then comes the beautiful Second Main Tune.
SECOND Movement (Slow).-This is a brief, highly expressive Movement. It opens with a long tune given to Muted Strings. At the end of this the Piano enters with a long, rhapsodical passage (lightly accompanied). Eventually, Flute and Clarinet quietly suggest the Tune with which the Movement opened, and this the Piano then declaims at full length.
THIRD Movement (Quick and emphatic).-
A few soft, detached chords in the Orchestra, a very loud Piano flourish, and one loud chord (Full Orchestra), and we are plunged into a lively Dance. The Dance is interrupted for a time, whilst we hear, as it were in the distance, a song. The Dance soon returns and, at the end, the song-tune is declaimed loudly by Piano and Orchestra.
