@ Memories of an Actor Manager
Herbert St. John
The ghost in question is nothing more spectral than memories of an actor-manager's varied career. Mr. St. John, who was manager of Daly's Theatre in its last years, has an all-round knowledge of stage life-its ups and downs, its discomforts and charms. He takes us behind the scenes-and that is a phrase with a glamour of its own for most of us outside the profession.

Mary Abbot (pianoforte) ORCHESTRA Gigue, Minuet, and Prayer (Suite, Mozartiana)
From his boyhood Tchaikovsky had worshipped Mozart and in this suite (composed during a holiday in the summer of 1887, and first performed in Moscow in November of the same year) he obviously delighted in paying homage to the older master. ' A large number of Mozart's finest compositions are for some inexplicable reason almost unknown, not only to the public, but even to the majority of musicians ', he says in the preface to the score. Accordingly, he orchestrated four of his favourite Mozart movements : a gigue, a minuet, Liszt's transcription of the ' Ave Verum and Mozart's variations on the theme ' Unser dummer Pobel meint', from Gluck's Pilgrime von Mecca.
6.37 MARY ABBOT AND ORCHESTRA
Pianoforte Concerto No. 2, in G,
Op. 44 (revised Siloti)
1 Allegro brillante e molto vivace. 2 Andante non troppo. 3 Allegro con fuoco
Whereas Tchaikovsky's First Piano Concerto in B flat minor is one of the most popular, not to say hackneyed, works in the concert repertoire, his Second and Third Concertos (in G and E flat respectively) seem to be almost unknown.
The Second Concerto, dedicated to Nicholas Rubinstein , was sketched out in Paris in the winter of 1879-80 and first performed (with Taneiev as soloist) in the summer of 1882 at the Moscow Exhibition for which the ' 1812 ' Overture was specially written. It is much more orthodox in structure than the B flat minor work, bright in mood and very effective. The andante is curious in that the solo piano is joined by a solo violin and a solo cello, 'and the treatment naturally suggests a triple concerto.

' Ways of Advance '
1—' The Increasing Social
T. H. Marshall
The speaker in this series both today and next week is a seasoned broadcaster who played a prominent part in ' Room for Expansion ? ' a year ago-a series that dealt with one of the major problems of the future: the trend of world population. Mr. Marshall, Reader in Sociology at the London School of . Economics, took part in all of the broadcasts.
Today he is to discuss what we mean, by social heritage ; our debt to unknown pioneers-those, for instance, who first domesticated animals. And he will deal with the evolution of mathematics, of physical science, and the social sciences ; and with tradition in government and in social intercourse.
