Despite the fact that En Saga is fairly sombre and gloomy in atmosphere, it is one of the most popular of the composer's tone poems. It was the first work to bring renown to Sibelius outside his own country, and this was due to Busoni, who introduced it to the German public during the 'nineties. Cecil Gray has well pointed out that ' one of the chief attractions of En Saga is the quite exceptional wealth of melodic invention that it reveals, at least three of the leading themes being of such outstanding beauty and distinction, that any one of them alone would in itself be enough to make the fortune of a work '.
One of the most delightful of all fairy operas and certainly one of the most charming examples of Rimsky-Korsakov's fanciful genius is the opera Tsar Saltan. While putting the finishing touches to the orchestration early in 1900, Rimsky-Korsakov decided to make an orchestral suite out of the preludes to Acts 1, 2, and 4, which was an immediate success. The beauty of the melodies and the expressiveness of the orchestration make the music of this memorable.

When this series was given in 1932 Lord Ponsonby contributed one of the best 'conversations', appearing in it with his daughter, Mrs. Pelly. It is good news that he has written another ' conversation ' and that he and Mrs. Pelly are to broadcast again.
There are three characters. A man, portrayed by the author, who argues that we should disarm totally. A second man, who advocates the collective security of the League of Nations. A young woman, who takes the view that safety lies in our being more powerful than anybody else. There is also a dog-that barks !
Lord Ponsonby is a well-known broadcaster, famous for his charm of manner at the microphone. Many listeners will remember his six delightful talks, ' Idle Thoughts', which he gave in 1931. His last broadcast was on ' Accents ' last summer.
