(Section E)
Led by Laurance Turner
Conducted by Joseph Lewis
Tom Williams (baritone)
(First Performance)
Reginald King is one of our most popular composers of light music. His compositions include ' Song of Paradise ', ' Summer Breezes ', ' Dream Life ', ' Country Life ', and many more as well known. Today is to be broadcast the first performance of his new suite ' In the Chilterns ', which is perhaps a little more ambitious in structure and more mature in character than previous works of his. The suite is the outcome of his frequent visits to the Chiltern Hills. His love of nature and the quietude of rural life are well portrayed in all his music, and especially in this new work dedicated to his own countryside.

Act 2 of Mozart's Opera
'DON GIOVANNI ' from the Festspielhaus,
Salzburg
The Vienna
Philharmonic Orchestra
Conductor, BRUNO WALTER
Act 2 opens before the house of Donna Elvira , a forsaken victim of Giovanni, who is now in pursuit of Zerlina, a peasant girl in Elvira's service. He exchanges cloaks with his servant Leporello and sends him to call upon Elvira while Giovanni gives his attention to Zerlina. They are disturbed by Masetto, Zerlina's betrothed, but Giovanni beats him and gets away. In Elvira's house the pretended Giovanni is soon discovered by Elvira, Anna, and Ottavid to be only Leporello, and their suspicion of Giovanni's villainy is still further confirmed.
The next scene is a graveyard. To
Giovanni comes Leporello to warn his master of his danger, but the libertine is in too high spirits to consider the warning. A hollow voice, however, now comes from a statue close by. It is that of the dead Commander, exhorting Giovanni to repent. Giovanni insolently invites the statue to sup with him. In the last scene, Giovanni is seated at table attended by Leporello. Giovanni opens the door to the ghostly statue of the Commander, who, after further exhortations, seizes Don Giovanni , and, the ground opening, draws him down into the naming abyss.
