The Czech composer Zdenko Fibich (1850-1900) wrote about 700 works, including a series of 350 piano pieces in the form of a musical diary, entitled ' Moods, Impressions, and Memories '. With the exception of one of these pieces, ' Poem ' (popularised by Kubelik in a transcription for violin), Fibich's music is practically unknown in England. His orchestral works consist of three symphonies, five concert overtures, and six symphonic poems, the overtures including two comedy overtures, the one to be heard this evening an early work and the other ' A Night at Carlstein ', which was inspired by a comedy by the Czech national poet Vrchlicky.

from
Czechoslovakia and Scotland
(By arrangement with Radiojournal,

Bagpipes are indeed such ancient wind instruments that according to certain Czech legends they were invented by Vels, the shepherd-god himself. They have been played in all countries at some time or other, but in Scotland and Bohemia they have become the national instrument. It is true that in different countries these bagpipes have their own special forms, pipes and bags, but on the whole they are very much alike.
A unique feature about the Czech instrument is that it is inflated with air by means of little bellows which have one side attached to the player's belt by a strap. The outside is fixed to the arm (which does the pumping) by another strap which passes through a metal handle. As in the case of ordinary bellows, they are made of wood with a similar air valve facing outwards. A particular advantage of the Czech bagpipes, or ' 'Little Goats' as they are called because of their appearance, is that while the piper is playing he can also sing.

Felix Alexandre Guilmant (1837-1911) was born at Boulogne. The son of an organist, he studied under his father, and at the age of fifteen was appointed organist of St. Joseph, and at twenty choirmaster of St. Nicholas. In 1871 Guilmant became organist of the Church of The Trinity, and later his name became widely known as one of the foremost virtuosos of the time-he visited England, America, and many of the leading European capitals. He taught at the Paris Conservatoire and the Schola Cantorum, which he founded with Bordes and d'Indy.

Directed by Sydney Lipton
with Chips Chippendall
The Three T's
from Grosvenor House, Park Lane

Sydney Lipton, who wound up the broadcasts on Christmas Day, has been on the air regularly from Grosvenor House since 1933. As a boy he gained valuable experience playing in various orchestras, and was lucky enough to come under directors of music who stressed the importance of the study of theory and technique. Then at a time when straight music was apparently on the wane, he went north with Billy Cotton to Southport, and then on to Scotland, spending eight hours a day practising the violin. But an accident to his hand changed all his plans, and preparations to finish his studies under Albert Sammons had to go by the board. Forced back to the land of lighter music, he formed a dance band and played at the Palace Hotel, Kensington, where Ambrose heard him and engaged him as leader of some of his subsidiary bands. This led to his appointment at Grosvenor House seven years ago.
He has met with ever-increasing success on records and on the air. His 'swing' was paid a tribute by Sophie Tucker. A number which Sydney Lipton discovered is With my little Horse and Wagon
