Mozart's magnificent A major Concerto was completed in Vienna on March 2, 1786, just three weeks before the equally remarkable C minor. In December of the same year came a third great piano concerto (in C major, K.503), and Sir Donald Tovey has pointed out that this trio of concertos is comparable with the trio of great symphonies written two years later.
' The pathos of the C minor
Concerto is even more profound than that of the G minor Symphony', he says, while the C major ' fully equals the " Jupiter " Symphony in triumphant majesty, and even in contrapuntal display '. As for the A major, it is, ' with the additional element of pathos in its remarkable slow movement, as eminently a study in euphony as is the E flat Symphony '.

B. A. KEEN, D.Sc.
A description of the work done at Rothamsted Experimental Station, and the way it is of use to people cultivating the land
The story of Rothamsted Experimental Station, the great stronghold of scientific agriculture near Harpenden, is an interesting one. After the Napoleonic Wars a young man, John Lawes , inherited the Rothamsted estate. Faced with the urgent necessity of making it pay well, he began to apply his chemical knowledge to the land. He introduced the first artificial manures in this country and may be said to have founded the laboratory attitude towards farming.
In the past hundred years the Rothamsted Experimental Station has helped the farmer with every available scientific means. This afternoon's programme will describe some of its wonders to listeners.
A party of schoolboys, accompanied by a recording van, recently visited the Station, where they talked to B. A. Keen, Assistant Director, and Edwin Grey , who has been working at Rothamsted since he was a boy of thirteen, and who remembers Lawes very well.
Recordings were made during a tour of the laboratory, and of the field ' Broad Balk ', which has been in uninterrupted wheat cultivation since 1843. The field is cultivated in strips, on each of which a different type or proportion of manure is used.

John Reynders, who is as well known in the theatre and on the screen as he is on the air, formed his orchestra for broadcasting in 1935 and they have been constantly' before the microphone ever since. He was playing professionally when he was thirteen, was musical director for The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse at the Palace and for Ben Hur at the Tivoli.

It has become common for radio shows to become stage favourites: ' Young Bloods of Radio', on the other hand, comes to the studio this evening as a show which has already well established itself on the ' boards '. The idea is to introduce to listeners some of those youngsters who will probably be big radio stars in a year or two. It is, in fact, the ' New Gang ' doing its stuff.
Issy Bonn, who had a year with Bryan Michie 's ' Secrets of the BBC ', has been broadcasting for a couple of years now, and has very ably filled the radio gap caused by the death of Julian Rose , the Hebrew comedian. He formed ' Young Bloods of Radio ' earlier this year.
Among others who will be heard this evening are George Elrick , who made his name with Henry Hall ; Shirley Lenner , who is only fourteen, and who has been touring the Halls with George Elrick for some time now ; and Morton Fraser , who appeared on the air as Britain's greatest harmonica exponent just one year before this evening's programme. Al Devito is a versatile youngster from the States, who plays trumpet, violin, the drums, and piano ; and eighteen-year-old Peter Dare comperes the show. There will also be surprise items in the shape of new broadcasters-all amateurs.
