Mozart's Clavier Sonata in B flat (K. 281) is one of a set of six dating from about 1777. Mozart often mentions them in letters written during his expedition to Paris the following year, and it seems probable that they were written not long before he set out.

Beethoven's A major Sonata for 'cello and piano was published in April, 1809, at the same time as the Fifth and Sixth Symphonies. Written at the height of Beethoven's maturity, it is one of his finest chamber works. Its general character of good-humourcJ dignity is relieved only by the scherzo. In a work remarkable throughout for sheer loveliness of sound the chief subjects of the first movement an 1 finale are outstanding. The finaie combines Beethoven's characteristic nobility and tenderness with an almost Mozartian light-heartedness ; the return of the chief subject is particularly memorable.

Eva Turner is well known to listeners. She is one of the few British singers who have won fame abroad in opera. Bom at Oldham, Miss Turner lived most of her early life in Bristol; later, she went to the Royal Academy of Music to study singing, then joined the chorus of the Carl Rosa Opera Company, became one of its principals, and finally left England for Italy, where she sang with great success at various opera houses, including La Scala, Milan. Since that time, her name has been acclaimed in every European country and in the United States.

Percival Garratt was educated at Marl-borough College, where he won a Foundation Scholarship, and studied music in Vienna and Berlin. He has won fame both as a composer and as a pianist, and has toured extensively in three Continents. His compositions are mainly for the piano, an instrument for which he writes with a pianist's understanding and a profound command of its technical capacities, but he is also known as a successful song-writer.

' The Liverpool Landing Stage '
Produced by Ernest Longstaffe
Tonight one of the finest character actors of all time is to give his latest impersonation-that of a humorous old man ; next he will do an item founded on an American story, ' Jim Bludso ' ; and then he is to broadcast one of the most effective features he has ever given.
The noises of the docks ; all sorts of conditions of men and women. Some sad at the departure of someone near and dear-some happy at the return of a dear one. And Bransby Williams will impersonate a man leaving for Canada to try his luck and trying to buck his girl up ; a Scot who won't have his bag carried, never mind why ; an American arriving at lil' ol' Liverpool ; a real Johnny chap ; a porter ; a lounger; a tripper.....
Humour and tears go to make up
' Liverpool Landing Stage', and handled by Bransby Williams , it should be a slice of real life.

Florent Schmitt was born in Lorraine within a few paces of the pre-War frontier, w-hich may seem to account for the Teutonic breadth of conception which combines with a typically exquisite French finish that characterises all his work. Born in 1870, he gained a Prix de Rome in 1900 and spent it in various parts of Europe, thereby adding to his other qualities a sense of cosmopolitanism. But with all this, his music is not known in England with the familiarity that his great reputation in France would appear to warrant.
