Relayed from the Winter Gardens, Bournemouth
Fourth Concert- of the Thirty-Fourth Winter
Conducted by Sir DAN GODFREY
GLAZOUNOV (bom 1865) is probably the most distinguished living Russian composer who does not work on very advanced ' modernist ' lines.
He is a master of orchestral effect, and in his ballets and other light pieces he has produced music that follows very agreeably, yet with distinct individuality of its own, in the Tchaikovsky tradition.
The Seasons, a Suite of orchestral pieces, was originally written for a Ballet. We do not often hear so full a selection of the music as this. We are to have first the Theme and Variations belonging to Winter, the Variations being respectively entitled Hoar-Frost, lee, Hail, and Snow. Then comes Spring ; Summer has three sections- Waltz of Poppies and Cornflowers, Barcarolle and Variation : lastly, Autumn has a Bacchanal and a little Slow Movement.
