BBC Symphony Orchestra . (Leader, Paul Beard ) Conducted by Hermann Scherchen
When Mabletr died in 1911, he left his tenan symphony unfinished: only one, or possibly two, of the projected five movements were sufficiently completed to justify performance The Adagio to be heard, tonight was original intended to be placed second, but Mahier seems later to have decided to make it the opening movement Ernst Krenek prepared a full score from Mahler's orchestral sketch, filling out the scoring but not adding a note to the actual music, and it is th s which is being used tonight. Hermann Scherchen introduced it to this country in two broadcast concerts in November 1948.
Liszt completed his symphonic 'poem

It was inspired by an immense p:cture painted by Kauloach, depicrng the onslaught of Attala and his Huns against the forces of Christianity in the fifth century. According to legend, the battle raged so fiercely that when evening came, the survivors bdievod that they saw the spirits of those who had fallen continuing the conflict in the clouds. Deryck Cooke

On behalf of us all Christ took issue with the evil things that violate human history. Against them he asserted the power of obedience to God and love for man. ' The world ' killed him, but failed to make him yield an inch. That was victory, and it was confirmed by his resurrection. It is decisive for the human race, but we share in it only as we are ourselves overcome, willingly, by Christ; for we are the world.'

Appeal on behalf of the 'Not Forgotten' Association (registered under War Charities Act, 1940), by Howard Marion-Crawford
Contributions will be gratefully acknowledged and should be addressed to [address removed]
Founded in 1920 by the late Miss Mary Cunningham, C.B.E., the 'Not Forgotten' Association has grown to be an institution of national importance. It caters for the welfare of Service and ex-Service men by providing comforts and entertainments for them while in hospital, where many of them have been since the First World War.
The Association has just had an ambulance motor coach specially built, designed to convey to entertainments those men who have to travel in wheel chairs. The cost of this coach has been about Â£3,000 and its annual upkeep is considerable.
The 'Not Forgotten' Association needs Â£15,000 yearly to carry on its work.

Symphony No. 2, in D played by the Scottish National Orchestra
(Leader, Jean Rennie)
Conducted by Fernando Previtali
Beethoven wrote his Second Symphony during the year 1802, when he was thirty one, and it was first performed in Vienna in April of the following year. Deafness and other troubles were threatening to overwhelm him at the time and his feelings, almost of despair, caused him to write his famous 'Testament' to his brothers Carl and Johann. But in the symphony there is scarcely a hint of these dark thoughts: its vigour and brilliance may be held to represent the triumph of his will and courage. 'I will wage war against destiny,' he said to a friend: 'it shall not overcome me completely.' H.R.
