As in the case of all great composers, Brahms was the centre of a circle many members of which, such as Herzogenberg, Bronsart, Ignatz Brüll, and Friederich Gernsheim , if not possessing genius, at least had great talent. Gernsheim was born of Hebrew parents in 1839, and studied at the Leipzig Conservatorium under Moschelcs, Hauptmann, and Richter, afterwards becoming well known as an accomplished pianist, composer, and conductor. His compositions include four symphonies and a number of chamber works, and the Violin Concerto in D which is to be performed this afternoon. Briefly summing up Gernsheim's style, one might say that it is always scholarly and tinged with the influence of Brahms, and certainly in this Concerto there is much more intellectual depth than in Max Bruch.
Rachmaninov has little in common with the Russian Nationalist composer and, like Tchaikovsky, is far more cosmopolitan in outlook. His music is characterised by sweeping and expressive melodies of a romantic kind, vitality of rhythm, and a masterly use of rich orchestral colour, which qualities are to be found in abundance in the E minor Symphony. This fine work was first performed in England at the Leeds Festival in 1910 under the baton of the composer.

Professor W. G. S. ADAMS and Mr. H. L. BEALES : ' Parliamentary Government'
Parliamentary government, evolved through eight, centuries of English history, emerged in the last century as the essentially British political framework of democracy. Imitated, adapted and adopted by many powers before the war, of late years it has been rejected by many countries in favour of dictatorship, various forms of federation, communism or fascism. The virtues and defects of the system by which this country is governed will be clearly shown by opposing experts tonight. The systems adopted by other world powers will be subjected to the same scrutiny in subsequent debates.

Mr. PHILIPS PRICE: Central Asia '
This week's listeners reach the plains of Central Asia in the eastward journey across the world in search of the strange music of racial groups. The novelty and fascination of a remote scene painted in the words of a returned traveller and the sounds of its native music have appealed, to musicians and general listeners alike. This week's guide, Mr. Philips Price, is a well-known journalist who spent the six years immediately before the war in wandering over the lands he describes tonight.
