The BBC Midland Orchestra
Leader, Alfred Cave
Conducted by Leslie Heward
In his ' Procession nocturne ' Henri Rabaud-one -time pupil of Massenet and since 1919 Director of the Paris
Conservatoire — deliberately challenges comparison with Liszt, for his music illustrates that episode from Lenau's ' Faust' which also forms the programmatic basis of Liszt's ' Der niichtliche Zug '. Faust, riding alone through a forest in the spring night, hears distant chanting. It is the Festival of St. John'* Eve ; a procession of children, nuns, and holy men passes. Faust watches, envying their happiness, and when they have gone buries his face in his horse's mane and weeps bitterly.
Haydn's Symphony No. 31, in D. is, unusually for him, scored for four horns instead of two. We know he had some good horn players in 1765 when he composed it at Esterhaz, and there is much more work for them than is customary with Haydn, particularly at the beginning when the ' horn signal' is heard at once.

from The Grand Theatre, Doncaster

The history of the Grand Theatre, Doncaster, really dates back to the year 1775 when the Doncaster Corporation built the Theatre Royal in the Market Place and let it to Mr. Tate-Wilkinson, manager of the York company-of comedians, at the yearly rental of £70.
The old theatre was doomed by the modernising of the Market Place, and was superseded by the New Grand Theatre, built by Mr. Chapman, which opened in 1899 with "La Poupée". In 1915 it passed into the hands of the Doncaster Palace Theatre Company, its present owners. It was reconstructed in 1931. Among the acts which listeners are likely to hear tonight are some famous broadcasting names. The famous Three Southern Sisters; ("England's loveliest singing trio"); Nosmo King and Hubert, in comedy and impressions; the Royal Command and radio star, Johnson Clark with "Hodge", in his latest ventriloquial scena ; and Harry Claff with Winnie Wager in "A Knight in Shining Armour", which he broadcast in London a few weeks ago.
