Before Segovia gave his first recital in a London concert hall some years ago, few realised how dignified and beautiful an instrument the guitar can be in the hands of an expert player who is also an artist. That first recital was a revelation. Segovia has such a command over his instrument, his execution is so fertile in range and colour and his artistry so imaginative that his popularity is not difficult to understand.

Hermann Goetz (1840-1876) is one of those composers whom Fate has ill-treated. Though not a genius of the first rank, he had a very remarkable and individual talent and by no means deserves the oblivion that has overtaken his works. His Symphony in F is a fine work, but his masterpiece is The Taming of the Shrew, one of the best German comic operas of the last century. It was produced in Germany in 1874, and at Drury Lane in 1878. It was revived in 1880 by the Carl Rosa Company, with the famous Minnie Hauk as Katherine.
There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a

given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the
understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time
- not those of today.
