THE WIRELESS MILITARY BAND

National Programme London

Conductor, B. WALTON O'DONNELL
CLIFFORD DERI (Baritone)
Whether Bizet was fond of children or not is difficult to say. If we draw upon the evidence of Carmen we should say not, for most of the characters in that opera are far more likely to have eaten children than to have fondled them. If. on the other hand, we regard this little suite, one can at least assume that he thoroughly understood their natures. The music is, however, entertainment for adults, as are so many of those things written ostensibly for, but really about, children. It is none the less delightful.
