at the Organ of the Empire Theatre,
Once again ' A hunting we will go ', the signature tune of this popular organist, will be heard before he gives another of his recitals. Hunt, by the way, gave the first of these from the Empire Theatre, Coventry, on February 21 this year. At the age of five Hunt could play the piano, and he had his first experience as a cinema pianist when only nine years old. The manager of a little Black Country cinema, the regular pianist for which, was ill, appealed for a substitute to his audience, and the young Hunt obliged. For some years Hunt was musical director of the cinema in his Staffordshire home town, and with the coming of the talkies set to work to qualify as a solo organist. He received his first engagement in a Surrey cinema, after which he joined Associated British Cinemas, Ltd., and ultimately took up his present position in November, 1935.

' The Habimah Theatre
This week the Habimah Theatre celebrates its twentieth anniversary in Tel Aviv, Palestine. The theatre has been responsible for putting on a wide selection of plays with all-Jewish casts, and has commanded great appreciation wherever it has carried on its activities. Many will remember the two visits that the Habimah Players recently paid to England.
I. Shamah is the theatre's dramatic correspondent in London, and in his talk this evening he will tell you how and why the theatre was founded, and discuss the type of work that it is doing.

Written early in 1910 as a loyal tribute to King Edward VII , Elgar's Second Symphony was afterwards dedicated to his memory. It is prefaced by the first two lines of Shelley's poem: 'Rarely, rarely, comest thou, Spirit of Delight '; and though Elgar's music has no intention of following the whole poem closely, it is no doubt born of the idea set forth in these two lines. The first movement is built up on groups of themes rather than on single tunes, and the impetuous opening suggests the Spirit of Delight itself.
The slow movement begins with some suggestion of a solemn march, and passes to other principal themes in the same dignified mood. The third movement takes the place of the usual Scherzo, and although there is a broad melody in a more serious vein at one point, vivacity for the most part prevails. The last movement, too, begins happily, and again passes to a noble and massive melody played on the full orchestra.

Berlioz's genius as a miniaturist is shown at its best in the two symphonic pieces Dance of the Sylphs and Minuet of the Will o' the Wisps from his Damnation of Faust. These two pieces are not only perfect in construction, but are inbued with the utmost delicacy and charm, both in the themes and in their orchestral and harmonic treatment. The Dance of the Sylphs comes from part two and takes place on the banks of the Elbe where Faust through the influence of Mephistopheles dreams of Margaret and the graceful spirits of the air hover over him and whisper that she will soon be his. The minuet of the Will o' the Wisps comes from part three where Faust in front of Margaret's house evokes these ' spirits of inconstant flame ' and ' caprice' and bids them ' dance! in the name of the devil '. The rousing and brilliant Hungarian march is based on themes that originally belonged to a work by a Moravian military bandmaster named Ruzicka, who lived during the years 1758 and 1823. Berlioz's version of the march is introduced in part one of his ' Faust' when Hungarian troops approach ' a plain in Hungary ' where Faust finds himself alone at sunrise.
