Programme Notes: 

By D.F.T.

The opening item in the programme was dedicated to the memory of James Walker, C.A., LL.D and Professor Tovey wrote a dedication to Dr Walker in the programme note:
"No man and no organisation ever lost a truer and wiser friend than the conductor and members of the Reid Orchestra have lost, since their last season, by the sudden death of Dr James Walker.  His keen interest in music obviously lightened the burden of the heavy work in the interests of the Reid Chair of Music which he undertook with such cheerful zest; and that this was a pleasure to him cannot but add to the permanent joy of our gratitude... His help in any difficulty on any subject had the quality of seeming to come from a man who had nothing else to distract his attention; his was the optimism that knows the worst, and the knowledge that neglects no precaution and misses no hint of a remedy... The only way to achieve anything like his perfect simpicity and freedom from the apparatus of persons who aim at being impressive, is to get on with one's work for its own sake"
