THE B B C NORTHERN IREI-AND ORCHESTRA

Regional Programme Scotland

Leader, Philip Whiteway
Conducted by PETER MONTGOMERY
MARY JOHNSTON (soprano)
As vividly descriptive as music may be of the many-sided life of a busy capital, the ' Cockaigne ' Overture sets before us first the crowds and the bustle of the streets and soon there is an episode in more serious vein—London's dignity. The vivacious opening returns, and then we are told of two young lovers-a melody on the violins. Street urchins are portrayed by a merry doubling of the dignified theme, and the next episode is a Military Band, coming from a distance, and passing by with pompous step. Again, a little later, band music intrudes on the two young people-this time a street band, with a playful mockery of the military music. Then, in a quieter section, we are to imagine the lovers as having found a refuge where only far-off echoes of the streets can reach them. The themes, after the traditional development, are repeated, and the Overture closes with a reminder of the gay spirit in which it opened.
