The movements of this Suite are arrangements for a modern orchestra of old Italian dances and dance-tunes. Respighi has proved himself a craftsman of great skill and fine taste producing acceptable suites of this nature. Listeners will remember two other Suites of old Italian dances which Respighi has arranged in the modern style.

Few light orchestras are more popular with listeners than Eugene Pini 's Tango Orchestra, which he first formed for broadcasting in 1930 with such success that it has been on the air ever since. Its violinist-conductor is, of course, Eugene Pini himself, who was born in Buenos Aires of French and Scottish parents and is the younger brother of Anthony Pini , the 'cellist.
The combination consists of three violins, 'cello, bass, piano, and piano-accordion, and the orchestra specialises in unusual arrangements of Argentine tangos, violin solos, and light Spanish music. Eugene Pini is always on the look-out for music of this type and is constantly introducing new numbers to listeners. His programmes are famous for novelty and melody alike.

Eileen Joyce (pianoforte) See the article by Ernest Hayward on page 15

Vincent d'Indy's 'Symphony on a Mountaineer's Song', which was composed in 1886, is full of charming singable folk and folk-like melodies which are worked out deftly and with great interest to the musician. The orchestral texture is a model of clarity, and the colouring is both delicate and brilliant. And the rich variety of rhythm and mood are qualities that are strikingly attractive.
Scored for a large modern orchestra, including a brilliant and expressive piano part (which is a solo in the symphonic, not the concerto, sense of the term), this work is divided into three movements. The opening theme of the first movement played by the cor anglais over muted strings is the Mountaineer's Song, and it forms a kind of ' key-theme ' for the whole work. The slow movement is an exquisite pastoral lay, and the last movement is one of the merriest things in orchestral music. Those who delight in syncopation have a clever example here of its use in building up a swiftly-moving and scintillating ending.

by William Gerhardi
'The Battle of Cyzicus ' and ' Jenkinson '
Read by Ronald Watkins
William Gerhardi , son of Charles Gerhardi , a British cotton-spinning manufacturer who settled in St. Petersburg where William was educated before going to Oxford, is one of the most successful of our younger satirical novelists. H. G. Wells and Arnold Bennett saw the rare talent in his first book 'Futility'. He then wrote a critical study of Chekhov before writing the ' Polyglots ', which was again admired by Arnold Bennett , and also by Lord Beaverbrook; and established his name. His autobiography, published in 1931 was very successful.
A new book of his is to be published, ' Coronation Club ', written on Pickwickian lines ; many of the characters out of ' The Polyglots' appear in it. It is very high-spirited and amusing-a satire on writing for the films.
