The pianist appears to be the only musician who has excelled as a composer. There have been many violinist composers, for instance, but with only one or two possible exceptions they have not been of the front rank. In the case of the piano, however, their number is legion.
There is no need to go back further than Mozart. In the nineteenth century there came Chopin, Schumann who, had he not injured his hand through using a mechanical device, would have been one of the foremost virtuosos, Liszt, Brahms, and so on. Less well known, perhaps. was Eugene d'Albert, the third virtuoso to be represented in this programme, who died in 1932.

Symphony No. 2, in B Hat....Schubert Irish Rhapsody No. 1, in D minor
Schubert's early symphonies were written when he was a very young man-at the time that he was a schoolmaster in his father's school. They were intended for amateur performance and therefore, both in design and in technique, they are very simple and melodious.
The No. 2 in B flat is for the most part written much in the style of Haydn and Mozart.

This is the first of a new series by Douglas Moodie of revivals of radio versions of big musical pictures, none of them to be recorded versions of the original broadcast, but all to be produced afresh, 'live'.
The film Alexander's Ragtime Band, which had its premiere in London in 1938, was named after Irving Berlin's most famous song, and traced the romantic story of the composer's life. It was a tribute by Hollywood to this King of Tin-Pan Alley, whose seven or eight hundred popular songs have made him a millionaire.
