BRAHMS' VIOLIN and PIANO SONATAS played by WILLIAM PRIMROSE (Violin) and VICTOR HELY-HUTTCHINSON (Pianoforte) Sonata Movement (Scherzo) in C Minor
BRAHMS once collaborated with Schumann and another composer in writing a Violin and Pianoforte Sonata. The third man was Dietrich, a pupil of Schumann. It was Schumann who, in 1853, proposed that the three of them should compose a work specially for a concert that the violinist Joachim (always one of Brahms' greatest friends) was to give. Dietrich wrote the first Movement, Schumann the second, Brahms the third (the Scherzo we are to hear) and Schumann the last. At the head of the work Schumann wrote ' In anticipation of the arrival of our beloved and honoured friend Joseph Joachim , this sonata was written by Robert Schumann , Albert Dietrich and Johannes Brahms. '
Joachim kept the manuscript; the Movement by Brahms was not published until over fifty years later.
7.25 Sports Talk : Mr. F. J. COYNE: Doing it on your head'
DIVING can, according to the skill of the diver, be anything from a convenient way of getting into the water to a performance rivalling tight-rope walking in dexterity and ballet-dancing in grace. Mr. Coyne is a prominent member of the Amateur Diving Association-one of those people whom we have all seen on the news films doing jack-knife and swallow dives from incredible heights ; in fact, he is so eminent amongst them that he will probably represent Great Britain at the Olympic Games.
mONIGHT Mr. Valentine will describe some of the most famous country in Great Britain-the wild and rugged Highlands at their most accessible point. The lofty mountains. the purple glens and silver lochs of the Highlands stretch Northward for another hundred miles, but the part with which he will deal is the northern half of Perthshire, within easy reach of Edinburgh (first stop from London now), with the Cairngorms. Aviemore, Loch Rannoch, Killiecrankie and the wonderful scenery of Speyside.
