By EDWARD SHELDON
An Excerpt from Act 1.. relayed from the Playhouse Theatre
A November evening.
EDWARD SHELDON 'S now famous play was first produced in America in 1913, and in England (at the Duke of York's Theatre, Loridon, after a try-out at Eastbourne) in October. 1915, when it ran for over a thousand performances. On both these occasions, as again in the American revival in 1921, Miss Doris Keane played Margherita Cavallini. which is her favourite and most successful part. Mr. Owen Nares , to-night's Thomas Armstrong , also created this role in the original production in England, and Mr. Cecil Humphreys took up the part of Cornelius Van Tuvl in August, 1916. The present production has, therefore. all the appeal of the original, in addition to the fact that the stars who appear in it have added many thousands to the list of their admirers in the years between.

French Suite, No. 4, in E Flat
BACH'S Keyboard Suites are strings of short
Movements in contrasted styles, most of them derived from the rhythms of the dance.
His French Suites are written in the light style that the French then favoured in their music.
In the Fourth Suite are seven short pieces :-
ALLEMANDE. The simple little motif of the first four or five notes, as simply treated, make up the whole thing.
COURANTE. The smooth triplet theme in the right hand of the opening bars, with the jerky tune that accompanies it in the left hand, supply the material for a pleasant, easy-going little piece.
SARABANDE. As in the previous movement, at the outset are heard, in the two hands, two rhythmically constructed tunes, and out of these the movement grows.
GAVOTTE. Neatly woven, in merely two strands, out of the little group of four notes with which it opens.
MENUET. Very brief. Merely sixteen bars plus repeats.
Air. The word ' Air,' as understood to-day, hardly applies ; this is not a flowing tune with accompaniment, but a two-voice contrapuntal treatment of the simplest possible theme-one octave of the major scale.
GIGUE. A gay treatment of a jaunty little tune.
