The B.B.C. Orchestra

National Programme London

(Section D)
ADILA FACHIRI (Violin) Sir Arthur Somervell's ComceTto t'n C Minor, which received its first performance in Edinburgh last October, was written about eighteen months ago. It was commissioned by Adila Fachiri, who was so impressed by the same composer's Concertstuck for violin and orchestra, produced by Jelly D'Aranyi at Aix la-Chapelle in 1913, that she wanted something on a larger scale from his pen. This Concerto follows the usual form in its first movement, while the second has the heading 'Romance' and the third 'Rondo.' Sir Arthur is best known to the musical public as a song-writer, but this work should considerably increase his reputation as a composer for the orchestra.

' A Miscellany'

National Programme London

The seventh Miscellany offers an exciting mixture. Darius Milhaud's opera-minute, The Rape of Europa receives its first performance in England: it was originally produced at the Baden-Baden Festival in 1927. Milt Gross' famous comic-strip creation Nize Baby - €”humours of New York Jewish tenement life in synthetic English - €”makes its English radio debut, too. Dean Farrar's hero, Julian Home, arrives at Camford University: delicate echoes from the Victorian past catch the young sizar in his room with his sister, hanging pictures and 'settling down.' Reading, from Daisy McGeoch's Cameo Corner, is an amusing study in the finer states of rudeness. The Last Tea an ironic dialogue of lovers meeting and parting; poems by Osbert Sitwell and Robert Graves complete a programme that has a proved power to delight and surprise that comes from a nice blend of original choice and efficient production.
