Completed in 1830, when Chopin was twenty years of age, the F minor Concerto was really his first concerto, is the so-called No. 1 in E minor was written afterwards but was the first to be published. Although structurally it follows the highly conventionalised pattern of Hummel, the scheme of harmony and modulation is bold and original, and the brilliant and individual treatment of the piano must have at first appe'ared startling.

3-Worship in the Early Church talk by the Rev. E. C. Ratcliff
Listeners to this series have already heard two broadcasts by the Archbishop of York. These were in a sense introductory and were concerned with ' The Nature of Worship'. This afternoon the Rev E C Ratcliff will select an appropriate date in the first thousand years of .the Church's history. From this date he will work backwards to indicate the origins and development of Christian worship, and forwards by showing what elements in worship at the time of his selected period contain the germs of subsequent variations.

Appeal on behalf of the Royal National Life-boat Institution, by Coxwain Henry BIogg , G.C., B.E.M.
Among the many brave men who are coxswains of Britain's life-boats none has had a more notable record than that of Coxwain Henry Blogg. He joined the crew of the Cromer life-boat 48 years ago and has been its coxwain for the last 32 years. Three times he has won the Gold Medal for gallantry of the Royal National Life-boat Institution: he has won its silver medal four times. In addition he holds the George' Cross and the British Empire Medal.
In the best of times the work of the life-boats is hazardous, in wartime trebly so. Since this war started the life-boat service has rescued 4,627 people, and is saving two lives for every one that it saved in the last war.

Byron was eagerly read by the young romantics in Germany, as elsewhere, in the first half of last century, and Schumann was among the poet's most enthusiastic admirers. ' Manfred ' appealed to him strongly, and he set some music to it, meant for the most part to accompany the recitation of the poem. Smalt parts of it were laid out for singing, and there are some purely orchestral pieces.
Schumann's idea was to have it performed on the stage, and it has on one or two occasions been given in that way, notably by Liszt at Weimar.
