Concert Overture, In Autumn
This Overture is a tone picture of autumn in Norway. A short introduction, with a wistful little tune shared by oboe and flute, leads to the principal quick section in the minor key, in which the first main theme is soon heard-a strongly rhythmic measure. A calmer section brings us to the second main tune, played by horns and clarinets-a more gracious and cheerful melody. There is another theme, played by the strings, simple and innocent; like many of Grieg's tunes, it suggests a folk song.
DORIS NICHOLS AND ORCHESTRA
Bcrgliot, A Declamation
Doris Nichols began her career on the stage with Oscar Asche in Chu Chin Chow at His Majesty's Theatre. She was an official ' aunt ' at the Leeds-Bradford Station at its opening in 1924. From 1930 until last year she was associated with the West Regional Station.
She has sung both straight and humorous songs, taken part in Shakespearean and other drama, and has had to assume many dialects in the course of ten years' broadcasting.
