(From Birmingham)
THE BIRMINGHAM STUDIO ORCHESTRA
Conducted by FRANK CANTELL.
ANDRE MESSAGER , known to us in this country as the composer of The Little Michus and of Veronique, is the last of the long line of French Comic Opera composers whose music really preserves qualities worthy to bo dignified by the name ' Opera.' He was a pupil of Saint-Saens, and in every way a worthy pupil.
The Suite 'The Two Pigeons' (two very guileless young people in the story), is a Ballet in six movements. The first is a March, energetic and with a hint of Hungarian rhythm ; the second is the dance of the two pigeons, dignified and capricious by turns ; the third is a theme with three variations. The fourth is a sort of inter. lude, a Divertissement, as the composer calls it, sprightly and full of interest; the fifth is a Hungarian danco with the real energy for which we look in such a piece, and the last, called simply Final, is again in a very quick march rhythm, finishing on a noto of boisterous onorgy.
