The Scotsman, 15 November 1929 reports in the review of the concert that, "... Mr Orloff was also heard in Sir Arthur Somervell's "Normandy" Variations for piano and orchestra, a work which has been given before at these concerts.  Here Mr Orloff was again highly successful, and there were again many recalls, in which the composer who was present in the audience, shared.  The audience would gladly have heard much more from Mr Orloff, but had to be content with one encore, the Chopin Valse in A flat, superbly played."
