Conducted by Clarence Raybould
Ernest Bloch, who was born in Geneva in 1880, grew up in the heyday of the late romantic period: and his C sharp minor symphony, completed in 1902 when be was studying at the Frankfurt Conservatoire, belongs entirely to the German romantic tradition. It gives only an occasional hint of the Bloch of later years, who turned from romantic dreams to a passionate concern with the bitter realities of life; Bloch himself has described it, perhaps ironically, as ' my optimistic work.' Nevertheless, it is an astounding achievement for a young man, both in its grasp of large-scale form and its sure command of orchestration. The first of the four movements has an extended slow introduction which foreshadows the second main theme and recurs at the end as a coda. The slow movement begins with a peaceful theme for the four horns, which is interrupted by a dramatic episode, only to be resumed by the full strings. The scherzo recalls Mahler, with its brass and woodwind fanfare and its trio in pastoral style; the finale begins grimly, but ends in triumph, re-stating the main theme of the slow movement and the second theme of the first movement.

Appeal on behalf of Student Movement House, by Donald McCullough
Contributions will be gratefully acknowledged and should be addressed to [address removed]
Student Movement House, founded in 1917 by the Student Christian Movement as a memorial to students killed in the first world war, was the first international club in London to open its doors to students and ex-students of all races and all creeds. The House plays a vital part in promoting international understanding by bringing students from abroad into contact with their English temporaries. In its friendly atmosphere the barriers of race and colour are broken down, and overseas students are enabled to take back to their own countries a true appreciation of English life and values. The House, which has now more than one thousand members, depends almost entirely on voluntary gifts for its maintenance.

Gilbert Osmond blames his wife for Lord Warburton's failure to propose to Pansy, and in so doing reveals to Isabd what kind of man she has married. Before she can learn the whole truth from the Countess Gemini, a telegram from Gardencourt arrives, to the effect that Ralph Touchett is on his deathbed. Isabel states her intention of leaving for England at once, but this is the occasion of an even deeper estrangement from her husband.
In spite of Isabel's remonstrances,
Pansy Osmond has been sent back to her convent for the time being, by her father's express orders. Isabel proposes to visit her there before her departure, but first she has something of final importance to bear from the Countess Gemini.
