One of the most beautiful of Elgar's works is the ' Enigma ' Variations. The title ' enigma ' refers to ' another and larger ' theme (a well-known' tune) which if played in conjunction with the present theme and the subsequent variations fits perfectly. More than one student of Elgar's music claims to have solved the enigma.
These variations are dedicated ' To my friends pictured within ', and, consequently, each variation is prefaced with the initials or nickname of the friend 'pictured '. Elgar's own wish, however, was that the work should stand simply as a ' piece ' of music.
A Dissatisfied Composer
Tchaikovsky began the writing of his third orchestral suite at the end of April, 1884. During this time he was keeping a diary in which he noted from day to day the development of his work. It appears to have cost him a considerable amount of trouble, and many times he was dissatisfied with the progress he was making. It was completed at the beginning of July and first performed some time later at St. Petersburg under Hans von Bulow. The Theme and Variations form the last movement of the Suite.

'Snapdragon' will be repeated in the Regional programme tomorrow at 9.0
This note is out of a letter from A. A. Thomson :
'It is a fairy tale called SnapDragon, and has the usual trimmings -prince, princess, and dragon, etc. But so far from being flippant, it presents a serious study in dragon-psychology, and as Horace Kenney is playing the dragon, you can tell how serious that is ! '

A Radio Retrospect of 1936 Produced by LAURENCE GILLIAM
The past year. How full it has been! King George's funeral, two Proclamations ; the inauguration of Television, American elections, the launching of the Queen Mary, the Olympic Games. The Boat Race, Test Matches, the Davis Cup, the Cup Final ; the Crystal Palace fire. The passing of famous men-Allenby, Kipling, Chesterton, Henry Lytton , Campbell-Black. There has been a new Viceroy of India, there have been outstanding events in trade, industry, and politics.
And all is to be told, and visualised and heard again, in this radio retrospect of 1936, with material drawn from over a hundred records which have been broadcast in the course of the past year.
