Andrew Clayton (tenor) from the Pavilion, Torquay
When Johann Strauss wrote his overture ' Die Tanzerin Fanny Elssler ', besides inventing an excellent title he paid a very graceful compliment to the celebrated Viennese dancer (1810-1884). In her recollections Fanny Kemble , the actress, said that Elssler ' was the most intellectual dancer I have ever seen. Inferior to Taglioni in lightness, grace, and sentiment ; to Carlotta Grisi in the two latter qualities; and with less mere vigour than Cerito, she excelled them all in dramatic expression, and ... exhibited tragic powers of a very high order.'

Act 1 of Donizetti's opera from La Scala. Milan La Scala Opera House
Orchestra
Conductor, Gino Marinuzzi
Chorus-Master, Vittore Veneziam
Cast
The musical Mecca of Italy is Milan the centre of which is the Scala
Theatre, which was built in 1778. No expense was spared to make it the grandest theatre in Italy, and it remains to this day one of the most beautiful in Europe with regard to decoration and design. Attached to the Opera is an orchestral society that gives an annual series of symphony concerts. Since Italy was the cradle of opera it has never been found necessary to go abroad for conductors, and the Scala Orchestra has always played under an Italian conductor. The most distinguished conductor who has ever guided the fortunes of the Opera and its orchestral society is Arturo Toscanini. A short article on Donizetti's opera will be found on page 14.

Societe Violes et Clavecin, Deuxieme Concert Royal: Prelude
Allemande fuguee. Air tendre. Air contre-fugue. Echos (Couperin)
Wanda Landowska (harpsichord): Passacaille (Couperin)

Nationality in music is an elusive quality, going far deeper than interest in folk music (which seems to be looked upon by some people as the only hall-mark of nationalism). It is almost impossible to say just what it is that is so essentially French in the charming, delicate art of Francois Couperin.
We only know that we recognise it again in the music of Debussy and Ravel two centuries later - and nowhere else.
