Towards the end of Sullivan's student days at the Leipzig Conservatoire he was asked to write some music for a German production of Shakespeare's The Tempest. The performance was very successful and the composer ' was called forward three times afterwards '.
On his return to London Sullivan re-scored over half of The Tempest music and then sent it to Sir George Grove , who performed it at the Crystal Palace at Easter, 1862.
Years afterwards Sullivan said that
' This was the great day of my life. It is no exaggeration to say that I woke up the next morning and found myself famous. The papers, one and all, gave me most favourable notices, and the success was so great that The Tempest music was repeated on the following Saturday. All musical London went down to the Crystal Palace to hear this second performance. After it was over Charles Dickens , who had gone with Chorley to hear it, met me as I came out of the Artists' room. He seized my hand with his iron grip and said : " I don't pretend to know much about music, but I do know I have been listening to a very great work " '.

' The Crusaders '
There were, in all, seven Crusades, of which the First (A.D. 1096), the Second (A.D. 1144 to 1148), and the Third (A.D. 1189 to 1192) were the most important.
In this interlude we see the Crusaders from the West through the eyes of the highly-civilised Byzantines, in answer to whose appeal for help against the Turks they had come eastward on the First Crusade.
The scene is set in a room in the palace of the Emperor Alexis Comnenus in Byzantium, and the interlude ends with the Crusaders marching past the window to embark for the Holy Land, singing their hymn, Veni, Creator Spiritus (Come, Holy Ghost).

Medtner represents a rather curious figure in modem Russian music, for he cannot be attached to either of the two chief schools of Russian composers, headed by Tchaikovsky and Rachmaninov on the one hand and the Russian Nationalists on the other.
But underneath a surface of austerity and intellectual application that characterises a classical attitude towards his art, Medtner's music is found to be imbued with delicate poetic meaning. The piano is his favourite medium of expression, and for this instrument alone and in conjunction with the voice Medtner has written a large amount of music. The Violin Sonata No. i in B minor is a particularly fine work, showing the composer at his full stature.

An Opera in Three Acts
A discussion between ERIC NEWTON and Sir CHARLES HOLMES , K.C.V.O.,
This evening Mr. Eric Newton (championing for this discussion the modernist movement) is to cross swords with Sir Charles Holmes , the famous landscape painter and critic, whose works are to be seen in galleries throughout the world.
Sir Charles was Director, Keeper and Secretary of the National Portrait Gallery from 1909 to 1916, and Director of the National Gallery from 1916 to 1928. He has written numberless books, several on the National Gallery and on Constable; on Rembrandt, Leonardo da Vinci , Raphael, and others; on picture collecting and picture making.
As a young man he discovered a strangely attractive beauty in the new landscape of industrial England, and found in it subjects for some of his most expressive pictures. To him painting is painting - a handicraft. If he considers much of modern art devitalised by the influence of the mechanised age we live in, and most modern painters so tied and bound by theories that they can produce little but experimental scrape, he can take comfort in the thought that, in its condemnation of older art, the modernist movement only does what new movements have always done. Its own turn for the guillotine will come.
