Schubert Lied Der Mignon

(' La Sauvage ') by Jean Anouilh
Translated from the French by Kitty Black
Music composed and arranged by John Hotchkis
Radio adaptation and production by Raymond Raikes
Characters in order of f peaking:
La Saurage is early Anouilh, written in 1934 though not produced in Paris until four years later. It is one of the first pieces noires (the work of his maturity being either noir, rose, or brillant) and also the first to s-how the truly distinctive Anouilh touch. That touch, in particular, lies in his gift for creating a unique theatrical a'tmosphere, and certainly she scene in the frowsty seaside cafe with whidh the play opens could be the work of no other dramatist. In the restaurant a great pianist, Florent, first sees and falls in love with the little Therese, who plays under her father's tutelage in the third-rate orclie^ra. He takes her away, and tries to make her his own by her the thing* she has never enjoyed, with wha»t results the title indicates. The theme here is the loneliness and intractibility of human nature, and Therese is the clear forerunner of the later Anouilh heroines, Eurydice and Jeanette. Peter Forster

Director, Francis Chagrin
Benjamin Britten wrote his Sinfonietta in 1932, when he was an eighteen-year-old student at the Royal College of Music, and dedicated it to Frank Bridge. Scored for flute, oboe, clarnet, bassoon, horn, string quartet, and double-bass, it is in three movements: Poco presto ed agitato, Andante [Variations), and Tarantella. Ernst Krenek's Symphonische Musik, written some thirty years ago, is scored for the same combination an Britten's Sinfonietta without the horn, and is in two movements. D.C.
