The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, conducted by Sir Thomas Beecham , Bart.: Symphony No. 6, in C (Atterberg)-l Allegro. 2 Adagio. 3 Vivace
Directed by Sydney Phasey from the New Victoria Cinema,
In 1920 a fourteen-year-old violinist, the son of a man who was a first violin of the Orchestra Massima in Rome, gave a recital at the Wigmore Hall. Three months later he gave another public performance, and this time his birth certificate was exhibited in the vestibule. The technique and tone were so mature that it was difficult to believe the player was so young. Now in his thirties, Campoli is a brilliant exponent of both light and classical music. He studied at the Rome Conservatoire, and has given recitals of classical music all over Europe ; listeners will remember his playing of the Brahms Violin Concerto in a broadcast from Bournemouth. For a long time he led the Fred Hartley Quintet and the Serge Krish Septet ; but to radio audiences he is better known for his light music combinations, such as his Trio and the Salon Orchestra which is to be heard this morning.

Jean-Baptiste Lully was for thirty years in the service of Louis XIV, first as violinist and ballet dancer, and finally in supreme charge of the music and Court entertainments of Le Roi Soleil. His continued success is partly due to the fact that he was able to follow the varying tastes of the King and his Court. Thus when Louis, under the influence of Madame de Maintenon, began to grow more devout, Lully turned his attention to sacred music, and produced at least twenty-three motets, of which six for double choir, orchestra, and organ were published * by express Command of His Majesty '. The most famous of these is the ' Miserere' which probably dates from 1664, and of which Madame de Sevigne writes so enthusiastically in 1672.
THE ARGYLE THEATRE,
This is the seventieth Variety broadcast from the famous Argyle Theatre, Birkenhead, which has been in the family of the Clarkes for sixty-nine years, and is now managed by T. D. Clarke , of the third generation. In April, 1931, the first broadcast from any music-hall was given from the Argyle ; it has introduced to the microphone 150 artists who were all to win radio fame, including Claude Dampier , Robb Wilton , Billy Russell , Arthur Lucan and Kitty McShane , and Jack Daly ; it was the first music-hall, and remains the only one, to have a programme relayed to the United States-in King George V's Jubilee Week one hour was taken by NBC.
The artists to be heard tonight will be chosen from Jack Edge , the genial patter comedian who just comes on and tells you all about the troubles he encounters in life ; the Lloyd Family-the one and only Marie's famous sisters, Daisy Wood , Alice Lloyd , and Rosa Lloyd-in a selection of Marie's songs; Raymond Smith , ventriloquist; Lapidus and Whelan (Albert Whelan 's son) in a new act on original lines ; Winsor and Wilton, in a comedy patter act, and Doris Cuban , xylophonist.
On Wednesday or Thursday evenings, at varying times, an authoritative speaker will be invited in this programme to discuss some subject of special interest at the moment
' The Romantic Young Lady ' will be broadcast again tomorrow at 6.40 in the National programme. An article on the play by Professor J. B. Trend appears on page 8.
