It is curious that the piano was Cesar Franck 's first and last love. In the full flush of youthful enthusiasm he wrote a number of piano pieces and then for nearly forty years the piano had no place in his scheme of things. However, at the age of sixty-two, realising a dearth of serious modem compositions for the piano, Franck set to work on several ambitious compositions to fill the gap. One of the finest was the ' Prelude, Choral, and Fugue ', which was first performed in 1885. Vincent d'Indy tells us that
' Franck started with the intention of simply writing a prelude and fugue in the style of Bach, but he soon took up the idea of linking these two movements together by a Chorale, the melodic spirit of which should brood over the whole work.'

Mozart's ten Church Sonatas for two violins, bass, and organ, are among his least known compositions. They are one-movement works, intended to be performed at High Mass between the Gloria and the Credo. Yet, says Abert, unlike the older' church sonatas' of Corelli and Dall'Abaco, ' they are neither solemn or devotional in mood nor written in the strict style. The centre of gravity usually lies in the string parts ; the organ merely accompanies, supporting and filling out the harmony '.
Of the three sonatas to be played this evening, that in E flat (K.67) was probably written in 1771, the other two about five years later. In these latter, it will be noticed, Mozart gives the organ a much more important and independent role.
World Championship Series
A commentary during play by Stewart MacPherson from the Zimni Stadium, Prague
Last Saturday listeners heard a commentary by Stewart MacPherson on a game in the Ice Hockey World Championship which is being played this year at Prague, on one of the finest ice-hockey surfaces in Europe. Last year the Championship was played in England, and Canada won. The year before it was played in Germany, at the Olympic Games, and was won by Great Britain.
Today's broadcast may not be of the final match, but listeners will hear a commentary on a game in the final pool. MacPherson, again broadcasting from the roof of the special stand that has been built to hold over 11,000 spectators, will have a view second to none. Apart from describing the play, he will probably be able to tell listeners which teams are in the actual final match, and it may be that he will be able to say who the champions are, for it is possible that the final match will not affect the result of the championship.
