Bax's Violin Sonata No. 2 appeared in 1915, but it was not until 1929 that Bax produced a third. While the No. 2 is a large-scale work and the music is imbued with the tense and tragic feelings so characteristic of the period, the No. 3 is a compact and graciously conceived work with two movements instead of the customary three. The first movement is graceful and lyrical in style and the second is full of vitality and gay spirits, except for the slow middle section which is contemplative in character.

A discussion on the question of access to the countryside
Nothing can be more irritating to the owner or tenant of a property in the country than the incursion of people over his ground who break down hedges, leave gates open, trample crops, and do all the other things complained of periodically in the well-known series ' I Protest'. Nothing, on the other hand, can be more irritating to the lover of the country than that aggressive placard nailed to a tree, ' Trespassers will be prosecuted '. It is a watchdog over the very meadow he would like to roam in, and the grass may have been cut, and he can do, and wishes to do, no possible damage. He may have an inkling that it is bluff and he can't be prosecuted at all ; whether or no, he chances it and then possibly the trouble begins.
Today, what with motorists and rambling associations, the question is a more vexed one than ever, for more people than ever want- to wander over fields and woods, and it stands to reason that their very number aggravates the landlord all the more.
-In today's discussion it is hoped that a landlord and a farmer or a smallholder will argue the point for one side and a member of a rambling association and perhaps an individual lover of the country will give their point of view.

Compton Mackenzie and Norman Sturrock
Edinburgh is a place where good conversation is an ancient and well-practised art ; and some of the liveliest conversation today is heard when Compton Mackenzie leaves his island home in Barra, one of the Outer Hebrfdes, and encounters Norman Sturrock.
Sturrock is an Edinburgh banker, and he and Mackenzie are old friends and old opponents in argument. Mackenzie's visits to Edinburgh are rare, and Sturrock has only visited Barra once, so when they meet they always have plenty to talk about, and generally they find some subject on which to disagree in ' the most entertaining fashion.
Their friends in Edinburgh have long enjoyed listening to them; tonight they are to argue before a wider circle. They have given no title to their talk except ' This and That', so it is to be presumed that their conversation will be discursive and comprehensive.
