Mr. JAMES AGATE , Dramatic Criticism
THIS is one of Chopin's earliest works, and though it is fluent and graceful, it does not contain a great deal of his individuality. He wrote to a friend about it : 'It is nothing more than a brilliant drawing-room piece such ns pleases ladies' It was dedicated to one
Joseph Mert , of whom Chopin once wrote : ' He is the only Violoncellist I really respect.'

Italian Overture. March in B Minor
THE story goes that Schubert, after hearing
Rossini's Operas, wrote his Overture in the Italian Style to show how easily that sort of music could be made up. There is in the work (and in a companion Overture that ho produced about the same time) a good deal of Rossinian pomposity and harmonic economy, and his trick of working up to a climax by repeating a little phrase of a few bars. Near the end there is a hint of a greater master-Mozart, and just a glimpse of Schubert's own face.

An Opera in One Act
Libretto by Arthur R. Cleveland Music by Napoleon Lambelet Cast :
Hugh Langton (Lieutenants ofYeomanry)
Chorus of Villagers, Yeomanry, Traders, Show-men, Gipsies, Schoolboys, etc.
Scene: A Pleasure Fair in the Market Place of a small Devonshire Town
THIS Light Opera deals with the topic (of which, apparently, neither the composers nor the frequenters of Light Opera ever tire) of love among the gipsies.
It was first produced, with great success, at the London Coliseum in 1905. To-night it is to be conducted by the composer, Mr. Napoleon Lambelet , who was for many years musical director at the Alhambra and several of the most famous West End theatres. Amongst his other compositions are The Yashmak, The Transit of Venus, Pot Pourri, and The Shadow Dance : all of which were produced between 1897 and 1901, and Valentine, which was done at the Strand Theatre in 1918. Mr. Lambelet was born at Corfu and educated at the Naples Conservatoire, and his first piece, M. Pardarmenos , was produced at Athens in 1890.
