MOZART'S PIANOFORTE SONATAS
Played by ANGUS MORRISON
IN listening to Mozart's pianoforte Sonatas, it should be borne in mind that keyboard music had scarcely passed the transition stage from the old instruments of the elavichord group, to the modern pianoforte : oven the pianoforte of Mozart's day had a somewhat slender, delicate tone as compared with the modern concert grand. None the less, his pianoforte music lends itself well to performance on a present-day instrument, with all the fullness and resonance which that has at command; dainty and delicate as arc many of his effects, there are passages which do call for the fullest tone which present-day players can obtain from a big instrument.

A discussion between the Rt Hon. William Bull Bt MP and Mr Gerald Barry.
For many years men of imagination both in England and in France have been making schemes for a Channel Tunnel, and for as long a time, at least, passengers on the Channel crossing have longed that their dreams might come true. Now the plan for a tunnel, which Napoleon adumbrated, has been revived, and it has become a matter of keen controversy again. Everywhere people are arguing about it, and tonight they will have a chance to hear its merits discussed by two exceptionally able controversialists - Sir William Bull MP, who is Chairman of the Channel Tunnel Parliamentary Committee, and Mr Gerald Barry, editor of The Saturday Review.

And that he has at command a real gift of fresh and natural melody has long been known to the whole country.
