Programme Notes: 

By D.F.T.

In the note on the Mozart dances Tovey writes, "As soon as the Reid Orchestra is endowed with thirty hours' practice a week instead of six, and we can afford to purchase hurdygurdies, tuned sledge-bells, post-horns and other extras, my friends will experience some difficulty in preventing me from performing the whole 120 dances without stopping."

In the note on the Beethoven symphony attention is drawn to the volume of Tovey's "Essays in Musical Analysis, Vol. I, No. 1; Oxford University Press, 1934"
