JOAQUIN TURINA (born 18S2) is one of the most distinguished of the present-day musicians of Spain. He and Manuel de Falla are the two Composers in whom the modern school of Spanish music, which is founded on the tunes and dances of the people, lives most intensely.
They are both Andalusians, and most of their works reflect the picturesqueness of the Southern landscapes, the warmth and colour of the national life, the thrumming rhythm of popular music born of the guitar, the tinge of the East that is still over the land once rilled by the Moors.
FRANCK'S String Quartet contains some of his most fragrant music, rich in harmony, striking, resourceful, fresh in technical construction, and full of nobility of feeling.
The Scherzo, of great delicacy and fine imagination, is played on muted Strings.

A parrot who is able to give a detailed account of a person's behaviour, when questioned on the subject, might prove an asset in many households.
Jim Gannett , however, found that the possession of such a remarkable bird was a distinct liability.
