Fourteen illustrated talks by ROGER FISKE
10: Romantic Music-New Colours
The main impetus for the development of the orchestra in the nineteenth century came from the Romantic desire to use music to express ideals and ideas and to tell stories In the theatre the orchestra became at least as important to the narration as the singers, necessitating a new range of expressive instrumental effects, and even in the concert hall only conservative composers paid more attention to symphonies than to tone-poems

by SIR Roy HARROD
Sir Roy Harrod spoke in the Third Programme on August 30, when his central theme was the need for all sections of the community to support the Government's incomes freeze and prices policy. In tonight's talk he examines the other side of the picture-the need for some expansion of the economy in order to make the freeze effective.
