The BBC Orchestra (Section D)
Led by LAURANCE TURNER
Conducted by AYLMER BUESST
Aylmer Buesst
One of the most experienced all-round conductors in Britain is Aylmer Buesst. He was born in Australia and made his debut as a pianist in Melbourne when seven years of age. In the following year he was sent to Brussels to study the violin. He then came to London, and finally finished his studies at Breslau, where he obtained the post of conductor. He returned to England just before the war to become conductor of the Moody-Manners Opera Company. From 1916-1010 he served in the Army, and after the cessation of hostilities he went to the Aldwych as assistant to Sir Thomas Beecham. Mr. Buesst was also one of the founders of the British National Opera Company.
Remarkable Versatility
Herbert Bedford is an exceptionally gifted and versatile creative artist. First, he is a distinguished miniature painter, having exhibited portraits in London, Paris, and New York; secondly, he is the author of a book on 'The Heroines of George Meredith' and one on the life of Schumann; thirdly, he is a composer of numerous choral, orchestral, and military band works.
Reed's Symphony for Strings
W.H. Reed joined the London Symphony Orchestra at its formation in 1904, became its leader in 1912 and held this post until a year or so ago. Mr. Reed studied at the Royal Academy of Music and has had a distinguished career as a soloist, chamber music player, composer, teacher, and conductor. His compositions include several important orchestral works, such as the tone poems 'The Lincoln Imp' and Aesop's Fables' which have featured in the programmes of the Three Choirs Festivals from time to time.
The Symphony for strings was written in 1933, the first movement of which was performed at the Hereford Festival. In the following year the entire work was performed at a concert of the London Symphony Orchestra and also at the Gloucester Festival.
David Moule Evans's Dance Suite
David Moule Evans is a young composer and Doctor of Music who resides in the country. He studied at the Royal College of Music and was in Dr. Adrian Boult's conducting class. In January, 1935, the London String Players broadcast his Concerto for string orchestra.
His 'Dance Suite' was completed in December, 1930, and received its first performance at a Patrons' Fund Concert in March, 1931. The music of this Suite is symphonic in character, though choreographically conceived. Scored for a full orchestra with the addition of a piano (which is used as an orchestral instrument), and five percussion players as well as timpani, it consists of the following movements which succeed one another without a break: Introduction-allegro giocoso-andante con moto-presto (scherzo)-allegro fantastico (finale).
