Fantasy Trio (in one Movement)
Ireland IRELAND'S FANTASY TRIO, a comparatively early work, presents no difficulty at all to the listener. From beginning to end, it is frankly melodious. There are four sections, although the work is played without a break. The violoncello begins the first with a fine broad melody, which the violin afterwards takes up. It is heard more than once at later stages of the Trio, and notably in the third section, which is largely a repetition of the first. The second is the only slow part, and the last is very lively.

Mignon Lieder (Mignon Songs):
I. Heiss mich nicht reden (Bid me not speak)
2. Nur wer die Sehnsucht (None but the lonely heart)
3. So lasst mich scheinen (So let me appear)
Kennst du das Land ? (Knowest thou the Land ?)
THE MIGNON SONGS are taken from Goethe's ' The Adventures of Wilhelm Meister ', a book which can and should be read in the English translation by Thomas Carlyle , but very seldom is. Mignon, a charming girl, little more than a child, is a tragic figure in the book, and her tale has been transferred to the stage on many occasions. The most notable example is that of Ambroise Thomas 's opera Mignon, and the lovely song from it, ' Kennst du das Land ? ' is far better known than is Hugo Wolf 's. There is no real comparison, however, between the two ; they are so different in feeling, and the Mignon Songs as sung in today's Foundations are among Wolf's most poignant and splendid efforts.
ROSE HIGNELL (soprano)
Theatre Music-3 THIS programme recalls memorable occasions, mainly at the Lyric Theatre, Hammersmith, and His Majesty's in the Haymarket. Frederic Austin's arrangements of the music to The Beggar's Opera and Polly have reimmortalised the lovely old English ballad tunes, while the great service done by Alfred Reynolds in reviving so much charming music of the past in connection with Sir Nigel Playfair 's dramatic revivals is on the same high plane. The music to famous plays of Coleridge-Taylor, Delius, and Roger Quitter is far more often heard than the plays themselves, and seems likely to survive them-as, indeed, has been the fact with Bizet's celebrated music to
Alphonse Daudet 's play which is now rarely performed elsewhere than at the Comédie-Française in Paris.
Rose Hignell, who represents the Lyric, Hammersmith, section of this programme, is on familiar terms with the music; she was a Polly whom Beggar's Opera enthusiasts will not easily forget.
The Hon. QUINTIN HOGG
THIS EVENING one of the most intellectually brilliant of the younger generation is to do a brave thing, for, conceivably, he is more likely to see his prophecies tested by time than any previous speaker in this series.
Brilliant, an over-used word, is surely not out of place here, for the Hon. Quintin McGarel Hogg did not attain through the lustre of his father, but by his own brain.
The eldest son of Viscount Hailsham was born on October 9, 1907, and won scholarships to Eton and to Oxford. In 1928, he took first-class honours in ' Mods.', and in 1930 a first class in 'Greats '. He was elected President of the Oxford Union in his second year.
