A Discussion between Mr. EDWARD HALLIDAY and Mr. GORDON RUSSELL
Mr. Edward Halliday , decorative painter and portrait painter, questions Mr. Gordon Russell on the principles of good design in the equipment of the modern living-room. Mr. Halliday has had considerable success in practical interior decoration, while Mr. Gordon Russell is head of a leading firm of modern furniture-makers ; incidentally, he has been responsible for the design of a commercial radio receiver that successfully reconciles the demands of good taste and mass-production. The efforts of our artists and designers to produce a rational distinctive style of decoration and furnishing deserve the closer inspection of all who live in the homes of today; listeners will find this and succeeding discussions full of illuminating and practical suggestions.

Overture, The Siege of Corinth ........ Rossini
Rossini at the age of twenty-eight was already a highly successful composer of operas; he had been at it for nearly ten years and had already to his credit between twenty and thirty operas, many of which, including The Harder of Seville, Tancredi, and The Italian in Algiers, had put him in the front rank of Italian operatic composers. But he did not always bring it off ; some of his operas were failures; one in particular entitled Mahomei II had no success:
Rossini, however, was not a man to waste anything unless he could help it, so when, six years later, he wanted an overture for his opera, The Siege of Corinth, he borrowed it from Mahomet. Both operas are now no more, but the overture, a perfectly good one, keeps their memory alive.
The Beni Mora Suite, which Hoist wrote more than twenty years ago, records his impressions of a holiday spent in Algeria. The Eastern idiom, therefore, was obtained at first-hand, and the music bears the genuine stamp of Bedouin melodies. The suite is in three movements; the first two are dance tunes; the third is an impression of Bedouin dancing girls in one of the dancing halls characteristic of a certain street in Biskra. The monotonous tune played on the flute in this number is such as a passer-by would hear coming from any one of the houses in that street.
