Regional Variations (2)

THE CHORAL AND ORCHESTRAL UNION OF GLASGOW

Regional Programme Scotland

THE B.B.C. STRING ORCHESTRA
Conducted by VICTOR HELY-HUTCHINSON
THE name of this Suite is very nearly a literal translation into German of the French
' Serenade.' The latter meant originally a piece of evening music, while this is ' A little Night Music.' Composed, so far as we know, for some specially happy occasion shortly after the tremendous success which Figaro achieved in Prague, the Suite, like a string quartet, is in the usual four movements. The first, a brisk Allegro, is in the traditional form, with the two main themes which form the basis of a development section and which are repeated in the last part of the movement. Next comes a slow movement, very much in the usual song-like mould. The principal melody begins at the outset with the same note repeated three times. The third movement is a quite simple Minuet, and the Suite comes to an end with a cheerful Rondo. The principal theme, leaping up the common chord and then repeating a note four times over, has a real suggestion of mischief in it, and in other ways, too, the movement is full of the brightest good spirits.
