Francoeur Francois Francoeur (1698-1787), the eminent Parisian violinist, was a member of the King's private band, composer to His Majesty, and ' Superintendent of the King's "Music ', as well as manager of the Opera. His chief works were operas which he wrote in collaboration with another musician named Rebel, with whom he also held conjointly various important musical posts. Francoeur also wrote two sets of sonatas, from which comes the one to be heard this afternoon.
Stravinsky's Italian Suite
Both the Italian Suite for cello and piano and the one for violin and piano are derived from the music of Stravinsky's ballet Pulchinella. The basis of the music, of course, is various melodies of Pergolesi, the result being a kind of pastiche of Pergolesi and Stravinsky.
The Suite for 'cello was written in 1932, the 'cello part being edited by Piatigorsky in collaboration with the composer. Later the well-known violinist Samuel Dushkin turned this suite, with the exception of the aria, into a Suite for violin and piano and added, also in collaboration with the composer, a couple of new numbers.

Lortzing Except for a few private lessons, Gustav Lortzing, who was born in Berlin in 1801, was entirely self-taught. The son of an actor, he was brought up in the atmosphere of a touring theatre company. While still a youth he himself acted and sang on the stage. For ten years he was first tenor at the Leipzig State Theatre and in 1850 he was appointed conductor at Friedrich-Wilhelmstadt Theatre, which specialised in farces and vaudevilles. In the following year he died. He composed a number of comic operas, the best known being Tsar und Zimmermann. Another success was Der Wildschiitz (The Poacher), which was first performed in 1842. Old Dances
Peter Warlock had all the real antiquarian's delight in finding such buried treasures as the quaint old book on which the ' Capriol ' Suite is founded. It is an early work on dancing by a sixteenth-century priest who took the name of Arheau -so old that the very names of most of the dances have vanished from modern ken.

THE ANGLO-INDIAN SCHOOLS APPEAL by The Rt. Hon. Viscount GOSCHEN, G.C.S.I., G.C.I.E., C.B.E.
The Anglo-Indians, formerly known as Eurasians, are mainly the descendants of permanent unions between Europeans and Indian women in the early days of our trade with India, when Englishwomen were not allowed to go East. They form today a community entirely English in culture and Christian in religion.
Owing to the recent political and economic changes. large numbers today are unemployed. The Church in India has to maintain 75 schools with 14,000 children for these people. There is no free state education for them, and, many parents being out of work and unable to pay school fees, the outlook for the children is pitiful.
The Anglo-Indian communitv is, and always has been, most loyal to its fatherland. But it must remain in India, its motherland, and its chief desire is that its children may be well educated to play a worthy part in that great country. Educated, they will be good citizens of India and upholders of British prestige. Uneducated, they will be a sad reproach to the good name of England in the East.
Contributions will be gratefully acknowledged, and should be addressed to The Rt. Hon. the Viscount Goschen. G.C.S.I., G.C. I.E., C.B.E.. Anglo-Indian Schools Fund, [address removed]

Mendelssohn came to England in 1829, on the first of many visits. Several works which will be heard in this programme are examples of his close connection with this country. They include the Scherzo in G minor from his Octet for strings, Op. 20, orchestrated by the composer and incorporated in his First Symphony which he conducted on his first appearance in England; the famous 'Spring Song', composed while on a visit to friends who resided at Denmark Hill; his 'Scottish' Symphony and 'Hebrides' Overture, which show how deeply the scenery of Britain had influenced him; and Elijah, commissioned for and performed at the Birmingham Musical Festival in 1846.
