THAÏs, one of Massenet's most successful operas, dates from 1894. The text is based on the novel by Anatole France. It has been occasionally performed at Covent Garden during the Summer season, but not in recent years. The Meditation from the opera, however, has always been a popular item in concert programmes.

Painting '—A Dialogue between Mr. STANLEY CASSON and Mr. ALBERT RUTH-ERSTON
THE name of Albert Rutherston is best know, perhaps, as that of a designer of charming book illustrations. One of the editions of The Week-End Book, for example, was graced by many exquisite decorations from his pen. He is also an authority on decorative painting as applied to the theatre, and some of his designs for stage settings are to be Been in the various public galleries. But those who have had the good fortune to study under his direction, either at the Camberwell School of Arts and Crafts or at Oxford, where he has been Ruskin Master of Drawing since 1929, know him also as a first-rnte teacher, with definite ideas about art and an unusual lucidity in expressing them. This evening Mr. Stanley Casson invites him to follow other distinguished artists in explaining his views and methods to the listening public.

SIR JOHN McEWEN was born in Glasgow in 1868. He took his degree at Glasgow University, and came to London in 1891 to continue his music studies at the Royal Academy of -Music, of which in Jater years he was to become Principal in succession to Sir Alexander Mac kenzie, a fellow Scotsman. He was made a professor of the R.A.M. in 1898, and was offered the Principalship in 1924. His compositions are mainly orchestral and chamber music, and it is by his quartets that he is best known. But even these are not as well known as they should be, for McEwen has never worried much about securing performances of his works and attracting public attention to them-a rare quality in a modern composer. He has written fourteen quartets, of which the one now to be performed, the eighth, is the most popular. It was written in the South of France— hence the title ' Biscay '-and records such impressions as, in the first movement, the wild, wind-swept shore of the Bay; in the second, the solitude of the Dunes; and, in the third, the cheery life of the Biscay oyster-gatherers.
