Twelve Studies. Op. 25 played by Iso Elinson (pianoforte)
A hundred years ago people hardly thought of a Study as a piece for concert performance. A Study, as its name implies, was a technical exercise. Some particular feature in which pianists were likely to need practice would be taken and a little piece written round that feature, using it over and over again. What Chopin did may be stated in a few words. He took the dry exercise and turned it into poetry.

Victor Silvester, winner of a world dancing championship, is broadcasting fortnightly programmes of music for dancing. He has been associated with the Dancing World since he was demobilised at eighteen (he had joined the Army at the unripe age of fourteen). He has Gerry Moore and Eddie Macauley on pianos, Charles Stinelly on alto sax, Oscar Grasso as violinist, George Senior, bass, Ben Edwards, drums, and Rico de Stefano, piano accordion.
In every broadcast Silvester features a new dance, the swing step. 'Rhythmic Melody' is the key-note of his programmes.

Appeal of Bach's Music Bach is unique in that every other great composer from Haydn to Hindemith has paid homage to the qualities of his genius. At the same time he is no less a god to the plain man, which is a remarkable tribute to the varied and powerful appeal of his music as music, for it is quite uncoloured with those personal and romantic associations which have made Beethoven's C minor Symphony a symbol of 'Fate' and Chopin's Nocturnes a confession of 'Love'.
Sir Donald Tovey has called Bach 'a spectator of all musical time and existence'. He came at the end of a great period and summed up all that it stood for. It was because of this that his music found little favour with his younger contemporaries and immediate successors. For nearly a hundred years after his death the greater part of his works lay buried and forgotten. Their style was considered old-fashioned. It was not until 1829, when Mendelssohn revived the St. Matthew Passion, that Bach really came into his own. Of late years the Proms have undoubtedly done more to popularise Bach in England than any other concert organisation.
