'The Cornish Coast'
A.K. HAMILTON JENKIN
In his talk this morning Mr. A.K. Hamilton Jenkin is to speak of the rocks and beaches of the Cornish coast. He will describe a typical fishing village, a fisherman's home, and the life and work of a fisherman. He will say something of Cornish dishes, of the old Cornish language and Cornish names. And finally he will discuss the changes that have come to Cornwall lately.
'"And having heard this talk, you will be able to compare the Cornish coast with the particular coast you know
Are the tides safer or more dangerous
Would you find saffron cakes at Thanet, and what colour are they? Would you like to spend your next holiday in Cornwall?

The B.B.C. Symphony Orchestra, conductor, Adrian Boult : Tragic Overture (Brahms)
Arthur Rubinstein (pianoforte) and The London Symphony Orchestra, conducted bv Albert Coates : Concerto No. 2, in B flat (Brahms)
Brahms himself Rave this overture its name of ' Tragic.', but he did not give any other reason for his choice of title than is contained in the music. It was written at the same time as the Academic Festival Overture, in the summer of 1880, and may be considered its complement. Both overtures were first performed at Bres]au in the following year, and the performance was somewhat of an occasion, for Brahms had just been made a Doctor of Philosophy by the University of that city.
Brahms appeared as soloist in his Second Pianoforte Concerto on its first appearance; that was in the Christmas week of 1880, in Vienna. Nearly twenty-two years had elapsed since the First Pianoforte Concerto came out, and by contrast with the stress and conflict which sounds almost all through it, this second seems light-hearted. Happiness certainly inspired it, and its message is one of sanity and whole-hearted rejoicing. There are four movements, and Brahms himself explained that he added the second because the first and third were so simple that something bigger was needed between them.
It is dedicated to Brahms's old master,
Eduard Marzsen , as a token of the lifelong gratitude and affection which united the two men.

This evening Mr. J. W. F. Rowe is to give the first of two talks on rubber. He will describe the various sources from which rubber is obtained, e.g., a British or Dutch rubber company's plantation, a Chinese plantation in Malaya, a Malay smallholding, a Dutch native rubber ' garden ', and so forth.
He will briefly sketch the development of modem production and consumption up to 1922, and relate the history of the British Restriction scheme, 1922 to 1928. And in this, and in his second talk on rubber next Thursday, he will compare the rubber situation at the end of the restriction era with its aspect in 1930. There is much ground to be covered in his second talk.

Although everything in the Argentine is still in its youth, the sources of Argentine Folk Music have already become obscure. No one has yet been able to establish with any certainty what has been handed down from the Indian who inhabited the land before the Spanish Conquest, or what was brought over by the Spanish settlers and Conquisfadores. It is, however, generally believed that the contact of the popular Spanish songs and dances with the Indian probably produced the great variety of National Airs and Dances we today call Argentine Folk Music.
R. Q. Blarney Lafone's ' Scenes from
Catamarca ' have been inspired by the customs and folk tunes and rhythms common to the Northern Andine Provinces of the Argentine Republic. The only one which perhaps does not convey by its name alone a sufficient explanation is the ' Angelito ', the wake of an infant, which immediately follows the Preamble. This scene attempts to evoke once again the impression such a wake makes on the composer-the mumbled benedictus, the songs and the dances, as the little body lay in its coffin surrounded with candles and gaudy paper flowers, dressed in paper and with paper wings and crown.
The ' Chacarera' is a popular
Argentine dance of brilliant character. In ' Dona Elena Dances the Cueca' the composer wishes to convey the charm and grace of the dancer as well as the dance itself. ' Carnival Sunday ' is a typical scene of these parts, with its riotous singing, dancing and fighting. The work ends with a shorter and brighter version of the preamble.
