BACH SONATAS for FLUTE AND PIANOFORTE
Played by JOSEPH SLATER (Fluto) and GORDON BRYAN (Pianoforte)
First Sonatn, in B Minor
THIS B Minor work has been called 'the beat
Sonata for the Flute that ever existed.'
It is one of three Sonatas, each consisting of three Movements, that reveal how much of variety in unity may be attained when the two instruments, Flute and keyboard, work together upon a set of themes, each after its own characteristic style.
The First Movement, full of vigour, has two chief tunes, which.are heard three times, with, after the second appearance, an episode made out of both. The first tune is played at once by the Flute, and the second, flowing on from this after a score of bars, moves in brisker fashion, with more notes to the beat. Pianoforte and Flute later on embellish the outlines, and imitate each other in the deftest way.
The Second Movement is a very short, slow piece, in which are displayed the Flute's characteristic beauties.
The Last Movement has a dual nature. It starts as a very brisk fugal piece in three 'voices,' and ends as a Cigue, of which the fugal theme is the' foundation.

8.0-8.30 (Daventry only) Mr. J.C. Flugel: 'The Psychology of Food and Dress-I, Primary and Subsidiary Functions of Feeding'
Food and clothing are the most fundamental economic necessities, but one has only to contrast the present habits of civilized mankind with the essentials of feeding and clothing to realize how far from the necessities we have got. History and anthropology heighten the contrast, and in this series of talks Mr. Flugel will describe; some of the associations, other than those of maintaining physical comfort, that have at various times been attached to food and dress.
A particularly interesting pamphlet illustrating
Mr. Flugel's series is now ready, and may be obtained from the B.B.C. Bookshop, Savoy Hill. Full particulars of this and similar publications appear on p. 468.
THE Victorian writer of whom Mr.
MacCarthy will talk tonight was ono of the most vivid and colourful person-' alities of that interesting age. The author of ' Ercwhon,' a fantasy of the future in which ho anticipated many modern ideas, predicted the emergence of personality in machines and visualized an ago in which the only crime would be disease ; of ' The Way of all Flesh' (it is necessary nowadays to mention that this has no connection with the Emil Jannings film), in which he passionately voiced the protest of youth against Victorian parents, and of translations of the Iliad and the Odyssey,' Butler yet found time for sheep-farming in New Zealand and controversy over heredity with Dnrwin. His personal history was a record of disillusion and' failure, very largely accounting for the savage brilliance of his books. Mr.' MacCarthy has a fascinating subject for his reminiscences tonight.
A Lancashire Comedy in Four Acts by HAROLD BRIGHOUSE
Characters in order of speaking:
ACT I.-The interior of Hobson's Bootshop in Chapel Street, Salford.
Act II.—The same.
Act III.—A room in a cellar in Oldfield Road Act IV.-Hobson's living-room
Here is a lively domestic drama of ' take it or leave it ' in the costume of the 'eighties. ;
Henry Horatio Hobson , a Salford tradesman, imagines that he can impose his choice on the world at large, including his family. But Maggie, his equally uncompromising, but much clearer-sighted, daughter, succeeds in convincing him, and everybody else, that ' Hobson's Choice ' is Maggie Hobson 's choice.
