Divertimento in E Flat (K. 563) played by members of the Dartington Hall Chamber Music Group (by permission of Dartington Hall)
Mozart put the finishing touches to this Divertimento ' of six pieces ' on September 27, 1788, about six weeks after the completion of the ' Jupiter ' Symphony. ' Each movement of this trio is planned on broad lines ', says Jahn, 'and worked out with the greatest - love and care, so that the trio—unquestionably one of Mozart's most admirable works-is a true " cabinet-piece " of chamber music. It is impossible to imagine anything more charming than the trio of the second minuet ' (i.e., the middle part of the fifth movement).

Programme about Common Ridings and Festivals in Hawick, Selkirk, Peebles, Galashiels, Innerleithen, Langholm, and Lauder. Devised by George Burnett. Produced by Moultrie R. Kelsall
Hawick, Selkirk, Galashiels, Lauder, Langholm, and other towns of the Scottish Border are accustomed in peace-time to hold summer festivals, in which great attention is paid to past history. The war has of course necessitated modifications of these ceremonies, but they continue to be held. Their forms differ ; sometimes there is a straightforward riding of the burgh boundaries-a custom once observed as a protection against the pilfering of common land by neighbouring lairds. Peebles has its ' common riding ' combined with a youth festival which culminates in the crowning of the ' Beltane Queen'. Innerleithen celebrates ancient strife against the forces of darkness by ' burning the devil ' ; and so on. Before the war some aspects of these
Border Festivals were presented in the Scottish Regional programme. This arrangement is nowadays impracticable, but this evening George Burnett presents a composite programme in which* teams from Border towns will explain—no doubt with friendly rivalry—the main features of their respective ceremonies.
