(All arrangements by Gilbert Stacey )
Gilbert Stacey began his career as solo chorister at Lichfield Cathedral and at the age of thirteen played the organ for services there. He then went to Paris and studied under Vincent d'Indy, and on his return to England made a name for himself as a pianist, composer, and conductor. For two years Mr. Stacey was pianist and arranger for the Squire Celeste Octet, and as a conductor he toured with the late Max Darewski , and has appeared on many occasions as conductor of his own compositions.

Leader, Daniel Melsa
Conducted by Clifton Helliwell
Enid Cruickshank (contralto)
In this musical jest Mozart is poking fun not only at the simple musicians who meet together of an evening in the village inn to make music for their own pleasure, but also at the clumsy and maladroit composer. The players are all given chances of being as absurd as they like ; the solo violin, particularly, is invited to indulge in a display of real futility.
There are four movements: the first, Allegro, begins with a very elementary tune, harmonised with the most child-like simplicity. The second is a Minuet, marked Maestoso, and though it, too, is very obvious in its design, there are little snatches of real Mozart-like grace which he clearly could not resist inserting. In the same way, the Adagio cantabile, which is the third movement, begins with a melody which Mozart need not have blushed to give us even in a serious work. The last movement, a bustling Presto, is rather like the first in its simple outlines.

Of the singers to be heard this evening, the appearance of Jeanne Dusseau is of special interest, for it is this artist's debut at the Proms. Of Scottish ancestry but Canadian by adoption, Mme. Dusseau first made her name at the Chicago Opera, to which she was introduced by Mary Garden. On her return to Canada, Mme. Dusseau became interested in folk song, and did much to revive the neglected French-Canadian songs. In 1931 she sang for the first time in New York, where she made a great success.
