From ' When Two or Three,' page 90
This week's talk in this fascinating series will be given by the wife of Dr. Pettoello, Lecturer in Italian at Cambridge University and well known to listeners for his share in the recent broadcast Italian conversations. She will describe the routine of the life of a working-class woman in a North Italian city, shopping, cooking, and the care of children, as well as the civic responsibilities that the modern Italian woman is expected to bear.

KATHLEEN LONG (Pianoforte).
Adila Fachiri (nee d'Aranyi) and her sister, Jelly, are great-nieces of Joachim, the famous violin player and teacher of a generation ago. These two girls were naturally among his pupils, and Adila, the elder of the two, was- one of his favourites; she often appeared in public with him playing violin duets. This practice of duet playing has had its sequel in the occasional and delightful association of the two sisters in works for two violins and orchestra by Bach and others. Adila Fachiri has inherited from her great-uncle not only his favourite Strad violin, but his broad, open manner of playing it as well as his veneration for .the classics, which yet permits full licence to his pupil's catholic taste.
Kathleen Long came to London from Bury St. Edmunds at the age of thirteen to study at the Royal College of Music, with which she has been ever since associated, as she is now on the teaching staff. She is very well known to listeners, both as pianoforte soloist and as a chamber music player. Her greatest preference is for the music of Mozart, but Ravel and Debussy also attract her, for, as she says,' they are pianistically perfect, in addition to offering infinite scope for the production of tone colour.' Modern British pianoforte composers owe much to her; she has given recitals of British music abroad, particularly in Brussels and Paris.
