THE CITY OF BIRMINGHAM POLICE BAND
Conducted by RICHARD WASSELL
TCHAIKOVSKY explained that his Fourth
Symphony had a ' programme.' A ' motto ' theme that runs through it represents, he said, Fate, ' that inevitable force which checks our aspirations towards happiness.'
The Movement we are to hear (the Second, slow, one) expresses ' the melancholy that steals over us at evening,' and its contrasted themes represent the memories of youth, some sweet, some sad. rtRANADOS (1867-1916) found inspiration for his most important compositions in the work of Francisco Goya , the celebrated Spanish painter who died in April, 1828. He composed a set of Pianoforte pieces called Goyescas, giving in another medium impressions of tho scenes depicted by the artist. He also made an Opera upon the episodes he treated in these
Pianoforte pieces.
