The Pavilion, Bournemouth THIS WORK, op. 108, was composed at St. Cloude-Jura in 1931 and is dedir cated to Pau Casals. It was given a first performance in Paris by Maurice Eisenberg with the Pasdeloup Orchestra, conducted by Glazounov, on October 14, 1933. Alexandre Glazounov is within eighteen months of his seventieth birthday. He has lived through the greater part of the most glorious period in Russian musical history, having been born a few years after the death of Glinka, the ' Prophet-Patriarch ' of Russian music (as Liszt called him). Glazounov has known and worked with every one of the famous Russian composers from Balakirev to Stravinsky. BORODIN'S second symphony is, like practically all his work, frankly programme music. Not that the symphonic nature of the work is affected, but, on the composer's own confession, he had definite pictures in mind. Much of the work has that effect of portraying barbaric splendour in the manner which so many of the Russian composers could assume so effectively. It is not difficult, for example, to associate the heroic themes in the first movement' with a procession of the old Russian Princes and warriors of a remote Russia. Similarly, the third, the slow, movement invokes a picture of Slavonic minstrels, softening with their art the most uncouth amongst their audience, while the Finale paints a striking picture of a banquet spread for heroes.

'STUDIES' is apt to have a rather stern and forbidding sound, but so successfully does Chopin contrive to invest his studies with a real musical interest that the listener need never be concerned with the instructive side of them. ' Le musicien le plus poete que jamais 'so Liszt called him-is represented in the week's ' Foundations ', also by the Preludes which, on the face of them, might seem to give his imagination fuller scope ; but many of the ' studies ' are loved and admired for their own charm and beauty, no less than the Waltzes, Ballads, Nocturnes and Preludes.

The Reverend F. E. HUTCHINSON ' The Churches and the Social Services '
THIS is the second of three talks in this series by the Rev. F. E. Hutchinson , and will show how a great deal of the social work which the Christian Church inaugurated and maintained for many generations has been gradually passing over to the modern State or to voluntary secular organisations. It is difficult to realise today that once, for instance, the care of the sick was entirely in the Church's hands.
Yet, in spite of State control in such things as National Insurance on the one hand, and of the voluntary system of our hospitals on the other, in spite of voluntary movements outside the Churches, most of them have still, as part of their normal activities, schools, clubs, and guilds, orphanages, homes for the old, and so forth, and visiting the sick is still part of the ordinary routine of church duty.
The Rev. F. E. Hutchinson will ask whether the moral witness of the Church today is influential or negligible in stirring the national conscience to deal with social evils and injustices, and the scourge of war.
In his third broadcast next week, he will discuss the relation of the Churches to one another and to the State.

Mr. R. A. WATSON WATT: Some
Special Rooms '
THE ' PUBLIC MEMORY ' of the weather, the collection, examination, and custody of records of weather happenings, is* entrusted in this country to the Meteorological Office, Air Ministry. Long before Geneva became a universal resort, this and corresponding offices in other countries had formed their own meteorological League of Nations, for the rapid interchange of weather information and for the advance of weather knowledge by international co-operation.
Something about all this ; the method of interchange of data, by telegraph, telephone, and wireless, its utilisation in the drawing of synoptic charts of the weather of the moment, and the rapid dissemination of the conclusions drawn from these charts, provide the subject matter of Mr. Watson Watt 's last talk in this series.
Next Wednesday, at this time, will be broadcast the first of six talks on Light, by Sir William Bragg.
