Sonata for cello and piano, in G minor, Op. 19 played by Norina Semino (cello)
John Pauer (piano)
Among Rachmaninoff's few works for chamber music this sonata occupies a prominent place. It was composed in 1901 and is thus contemporary with the Second Piano Concerto, perhaps his most popular composition, with which thematically it has much in common. It is in four movements.

Part 6-'Adventure's End '
(Elsie and Doris Waters) in a new series entitled
' Feed the Brute'
This inimitable pair need little introduction to most listeners. Sisters of Jack Warner , Elsie and Doris Waters have been delighting their listeners for years. Indeed, ' Gert and Daisy' must rank among the best-loved figures in radio.
This evening they are giving the first of a series of five-minute broadcasts on, for them, an unusual topic -food. Listeners to this series will not only be able to laugh at and with Gert and Daisy in their arguments, but will also gain no little useful information on how to make the best of wartime food conditions.
The broadcasts will be every evening at the same time, with the exception of Sundays.

Liszt's only sonata was completed on February 2, 1853, and was dedicated to Schumann in acknowledgment of the dedication of the latter's great Fantasia, Op. 17. In every way the sonata was an epoch-making work. It is undoubtedly one of Liszt's greatest compositions, and on every page of it there is evidence of the immense imagination that went to its making. The sonata is played without a break.

It has been said of Victor Herbert that had he been provided with the counterpart of W. S. Gilbert , he might well have produced an American Gilbert-and- Sullivan tradition.
As it was, he could produce a flow of music to suit almost any occasion, and his numerous operettas bear ample testimony to this genius. Many listeners will have seen the recent film based on his music, The Great Victor Herbert.

Dvorak's Cello Concerto, in three movements, was written in the early 'nineties, soon after his return from America, and belongs to the period of the ' New World ' Symphony and the ' Nigger ' Quartet. But there is practically no trace of Negro colouring in the concerto.
As in the ' New World' Symphony, a motto theme dominates the whole work. Here the motto theme is the first tune of the first movement ; it is heard on the clarinets and bassoons, and crops up frequently in this and the succeeding movements.
