Mr. VICTOR HELY-HUTCHINSON :
' Key 2—Establishing a Key '
THIS is one of a series of simple, non-technical talks on the essential principles of musical composition. They are designed expressly for the lover of music whose understanding is not yet commensurate with his enjoyment. In the list of pianoforte works and gramophone records recommended for study in connection with the talks, appear a certain Quartet ' in F,' and a Sonata ' in E Minor.'
How many could say clearly just wliat those terms signify? Those who heard Mr. Hely-Hutchinson's previous talks already know what a 'key' is. Now ho discusses, with illustrations, the important question of the relation of the key to the keynote.

A Comedy by AUGUST STRINDBERG
Adapted for broadcasting by DULCIMA GLASBY
Produced by HOWARD Rose
THOSE who missed the previous broadcast of this play in 1928, or who only know their Strindberg from the recent stage revivals of The Father and The Dance of Death, may rub their eyes to see the term Comedy' associated with any of his work. The truth is that the great Swedish dramatist, like our own Shakespeare, passed through a dark period in his middle years. There are Crime... and Crimes, written in 1899 at the age of fifty, was the play that marked a final victory ovr.- the forces of gloom. Strindberg himself described the mood of the play as ' Light after darkness ; new productivity . with recovered Faith, Hope and Love—and with fult rock-firm Certitude.' The gist of the play is best given in the words of one of the principal characters : ' There are crimes not mentioned in the criminal code, and these are the worst of all, for they have to be punished by ourselves.' Definitely a play with a vital spiritual message — a sermon in dramatic form, if you will— but a comedy, nevertheless !
