BACH SONATAS for FLUTE and PIANOFORTE
Played by JOSEPH SLATER (Flute) and GORDON BRYAN (Pianoforte)
Sixth Sonata, in E
IN the slow First Movement there is much of charming diversity of ornamentation in the Flute part, which has a richly graceful outline.
The Second Movement knows its mind, and crisply and firmly speaks it, in bright and breezy fashion.
The next Movement is a Siciliana, a piece of which we heard a specimen in the Second Sonata, on Tuesday-a gently lilting piece, sweet and restful.
Last of all comes a bold piece in three-time, rushing confidently ahead in Iong sweeps, travelling joyously, because it knows very well where it is going, and sees the road gloriously open before it.
7.25 Col. PHILIP TREVOR : Eye Witness Account of the first Test Trial
THE touring team from the West Indies has surprised some ot our best County sides by the high standard of the cricket that it plays, and the sporting public is looking forward with keen interest to the first Test Match at Lords on Saturday. June 23. The England team will be picked as'a result of the Test Trial that began today, the first day's play in which Colonel Philip Trevor , the well-known writer on cricket and Rugby football, will describe in this evening's talk.
GREAT BRITAIN has nothing to show more wildly picturesque than the district that Mr. Valentine will describe in his fifth talk. From the Ayrshire coast up through the long chain of islands-Oban, Skye, Lewis, and the Outer Hebrides-to the solitary and remote rock of St. Kilda out in the lonely sea, that is the holiday-ground whose beaxities and facilities he will recount tonight.
