In 1873 Victor Hartmann , a well-known architect and painter, member of Balakirev's circle, and close friend of Stassov, the critic, and Mussorgsky, died at the early age of thirty-nine. Mussorgsky was deeply upset and in the following year when Stassov arranged an exhibition of Hartmann's water colours and drawings, he was moved to compose a cycle of ten piano pieces based on various subjects from Hartmann's pictures. These he entitled ' Pictures from an Exhibition.'
Mussorgsky appears to have been highly stimulated with the idea, for in a letter to Stassov, to whom the work is dedicated, he says: ' Hartmann is bubbling over, just as Boris Godunov did. Ideas, melodies, come to me of their own accord ... I can hardly manage to put it all down on paper fast enough.' One of these ideas was an introduction under the title of ' Promenade which represents the spectator walking through the exhibition, and as he moves on from one picture to another a modified version of it reappears. Mussorgsky was particularly pleased with these ' promenades ', and asserted that his 'own physiognomy peeps-all through ' them.

Cesar Franck 's Symphonic Variations for piano and orchestra was composed in 1885 and given its first performance in the following year by the Societe Nationale de Musique. It is certainly one of the most beautiful of Franck's works, written as it is with the utmost clarity of style and purity of thought and delicacy of colour. The form of the variations is interesting in that it is treated cyclically. Although in one continuous movement, the music falls into ten distinct sections: Introduction, statement of theme and six variations, interlude and finale.
On the entry of the piano in the Introduction (poco allegro), the cyclic theme is heard. Later on the time changes into an allegretto quasi andante, and after a few bars the piano gives out a second theme upon which the six variations are built.

Hugh Morton 's The Belle of New York, with its playful mockery of the Salvation Army, buoyed up by Gustav Kerker 's catching tunes' Teach me how to kiss ', The Anti-Cigarette Society', ' The Purity Brigade ', ' On the beach at Narragansett', ' When we are married ', ' She is the Belle of New York', and the rest-first captured London at the Shaftesbury in 1898, when it ran for just on seven hundred performances. Since then it hasi been revived again and again-in 1901, 1914, 1919, 1931, 1933, and 1934— always with outstanding success. The revival of 1914, for instance, ran for 151 performances despite the outbreak of the war.

Scott is commonly alleged nowadays to be unreadable. It is true the allegation is generally made by people who were driven through two or three of the Waverley novels in their schooldays and have never opened one since. But even those who genuinely find Scott the novelist not to their taste could never say that Scott the letter-writer is unreadable.
Admittedly he was not in the class of the Lambs and Cowpers and Walpoles, but his attractive, personality, his pleasant humour, and his wide range of interest (and consequently the vast number of his correspondents of every rank in life), made him a very 'good correspondent' indeed.

Most of us owe our impression of the heroic Sir Richard Grenville entirely to Tennyson's stirring ' ballad of the fleet', ' The Revenge '. Tennyson may not have been very accurate in his facts ; of his ' fifty-three ' Spanish ships only twenty or so were men-o'-war ; but he in no way exaggerates the grandeur of the Revenge's last fight. The cold voice of history may insist that Grenville was trapped, not through solicitude for his ' ninety men and more that are lying sick ashore ', but by his own obstinate temper, bad seamanship, and disobedience to his commanding officer. But heroism covers a multitude of faults, and Grenville and his men have a secure place in the pantheon of British naval history.
