SIR THOMAS BEECH AM . . .
. . . who will appear with the Seattle Symphony Monday,
By MARJORIE MAJOR
Two famous, colorful Britishers, Sir Thomas Beecham, con
ductor, and Miss Betty Humby, pianist, will appear with the
Seattle Symphony orchestra in concert Monday evening at 8:15.
Third in the Greater Artists concert series, Sir Thomas will
direct a balanced program of classic and modern music taken
from Mozart, Berlioz, Delius, and Chabrier.
In celebration of the Pacific
Coast Mozart festival, Sir Thomas
has dedicated the first portion of
the concert to his works.
Miss Betty Humby will appear
as guest soloist with the orches

17 in G major for piano and or
The Seattle symphony has as
concert master the famous Hun
garian violinist, Francis Aranyi,
who has been widely recognized
as an artist in Europe.
Continuing the Mozart portion
of the program, the orchestra will
play the overture from the
“Magic Flute” and the Prague
symphony No. 3S in D major.
After the intermission, Sir
Thomas will conduct the “Chasse
Royale ac Orage” by Berlioz.
“The Royal Hunt and Storm” is
an orchestral intermezzo from the
grand opera "The Trojans” which
was built by the composer on the
tragic story of Dido and Aeneas.
One of the six operas written
by Delius, "A Village Romeo and
Juliet,” contains a symphonic
interlude called “A Walk in the
Paradise Garden.” It describes
the country lovers, Sali and Vren
chen, walking in the twilight.
Delius is one of the modernists
whom Sir Thomas has featured
continually in the past few years.
The final melodic climax will be
an orchestral rhapsody, “Espana,”
by Chabrier. In this rhapsody
Chabrier combined vivacious,
fiery Jota tunes and langorous
Malaguena melodies in triple
