Gustav Hoist was for many years strongly influenced* by Eastern lore ; he made a study of Sanskrit so that he might translate for himself passages from old writings which appealed to him. In 1907 and 1908 he made a great impression on the musical world with two sets of Vedic hymns, which were recognised at once as profoundly sincere translations into Western
- music of a beautiful side of Eastern mysticism.

Quartet in G, Op. 106 played by the Menges String Quartet Dvorak began the G major Quartet in 1895, soon after his return from America. He was overjoyed at finding himself once more amid familiar scenes, and his joy found full expression in .two magnificent quartets — in A flat. Op. 105, and in G, Op. 106. ' These quartets ', writes Ottokar Sourek , are the swan songs of Dvorak's chamber music, which reaches its ' zenith in these two compositions. Dvorak's artistic nature is manifest here in all its purity and individuality..... The first two movements of the G major Quartet belong to the greatest things which ever came from Dvorak's/ pen.'
A portrait of the artist, Paul Cezanne , introducing his friend the writer, Emile Zola : by Kathleen Raine. Produced by Louis MacNeice
Paul Cezanne was born at Aix-en-Provence in 1893. Encouraged by Emile. Zola , a close friend of his schooldays, he broke away from a legal career and went to study art in Paris, where he met and was influenced by the leading Impressionist painters. Dissatisfied with Impressionist concentration on the appearance of surfaces in light and on its representation tby the use of primary colours, he tried to reunite form and colour in the new manner which led other painters to Cubism. It was written of his work that the nightmare spectacle of these atrocities in oils surpasses every limit of decency ' ; and in his lifetime he suffered the misunderstanding and neglect frequently afforded to the artist ruled by his conscience and true to his own vision.
