TI10 Hon. HAROLD NICOLSON, C.M.G.: The New Revelation
LAST week Mr. Harold Nicolson spoke of the reaction against the nineteenth-century cult of 'revelation,' and showed how authors began to fall back on personal experience as being the only thing of which they could be certain. Tonight he explains how this period of doubting is drawing to an end. Negation and anarchism are not good for literature; some more positive theory is necessary. There are traces in the works of younger writers of a longing for some definite formula, a groping after truth. Mr. Nicolson gives examples of this tendency, shows how and why it has arisen, and describes possible lines of its development... In modern literature the important figure to keep a look-out for is no longer the introspective pyschologist: it is the impending teacher and prophet.
WEATHER FORECAST, SECOND GENERAL NEWS
by KATHARINE GOODSON
AS child, Katharine Goodson played both violin and pianoforte, but concentrated so soon and with such success on the pianoforte that at the age of twelve she played solos in public. A fter some strenuous work at the Royal Academy, she went to Vienna for four years' study with Leschetizky, and, on her return, scored an immediate success at her first appearance in London, at one of the Popular Concerts. A series of recitals and a provincial tour followed, and year by year since then her right to a place in the very front rank of living pianists has been ever more widely recognized. Throughout Europe and America, as well as here, there is no great centre of music-making where her playing is not held in honour, no great orchestra nor conductor with whom she has not joined in concertos. An artist of the widest culture and sympathies, she plays old and new music with a like true insight, bringing her command of all the pianoforte's resources to bear on grave and gay, big and slight, majestic or merry music, with the same whole-hearted zest. She has done much to spread a knowledge of the music of her husband, Arthur Hinton-his Concerto in D Minor particularly. Two of his slighter pieces are included in her programme this evening.
' Of how, through Woman-Worship, knaves compound
With honoure ; Kings reck not of their domaine ; Proud Pontiffs sigh; and War-men world renownd,
Toe win one Woman, all things else disdaine : Since Melicent doth in herselfe contayno
All this world's riches that may farre be found. If Saphyres ye desire, her eies are plaine ;
If Rubies, loe, hir lips be Rubyes sound;-
If Pearles, hir teeth be Pearles, both pure and round;
If Yvorie, her forehead Yvory weene ;
If Gold, her locks with finest Gold abound ;
If silver, her faire hands have
Yet that which fayrest is, but Few beholde,
Her soul adornd with vertues manifold.'
