From page 51 of ' When Two or Three '
This series has been running since October 3, 1935, and probably owes its popularity to the diversity and interest of the four five-minute talks that are given every Thursday morning. A typical selection-and one actually given in November-comprised talks on the islands of the Malay Archipelago, brussels sprouts, fruit-canning, and the film censor. Who could be bored ? ... Then practical directions are given for jobs that need doing in the house, or household hints are given by housewives from other countries on holiday over here-anything and everything contributes to the interest of ' At Home Today '.

One of the most amazing feats of Mozart's wonderful career of less than thirty-six years was the production within six weeks of three great symphonies, each one of them a masterpiece. Things about him were anything but encouraging for the conception of fine music. He had succeeded Gluck as Master of the Imperial Music (Kapellmeister), but the salary had been cut down by more than half, and Mozart was really hard put to it to find the wherewithal for his household's daily needs. This, apparently, had very little influence on Mozart's creative gifts, and there is much in all these three symphonies that suggests the best of good spirits.
Symphony No. 41 in C was the last of the three, and not only the last, but by common consent the greatest-of all his symphonies. No one knows who gave it the title ' the Jupiter', but the whole world of music has long accepted it as in every way fitting for so great a work.
