Juan Crisostomo Arriaga was born in Bilbao in 1806 and died in Paris at the age of twenty. His Symphony is in four movements, the first of which has a slow introduction.
Berthold Goldschmidt's Violin Concerto was completed in 1952. A short introduction leads into a brisk Allegro; the slow movement is marked Andante amoroso; and the finale is a graceful Gigue which (in the words of the composer) ' ends on a whimsical note.'
Talk by E. H. Carr
In a recent talk Professor Seton-Watson described the Soviet ruling class as a ' State bourgeoisie ' and suggested comparisons with the bourgeois ruling class of Victorian England. In this talk E. H. Carr contends that it is confusing to equate the present Soviet regime with anything we have seen in the past.
Part 2 Gounod wrote his three symphonies in the early eighteen-fifties. He was some thirty-five years of age at the time and had yet to achieve his great operatic successes. The First Symphony, produced in 1854, is in four movements: Allegro motto, Allegretto moderato, Scherzo, and Adagio leading to Allegro vivace.
