The first movement of Ravel's Sonatine is designed in the usual classical sonata style, but instead of two definite themes, it has two groups of phrases. Starting softly with the first group, it builds up to a moderate climax, which is succeeded by the second group of phrases. The material is then briefly and simply developed.
The second movement is in * minuet rhythm and the music suggests a slow, graceful old dance.
The finale, the longest of the three movements, is energetic in character and laid out on rather more elaborate lines. This movement is admirably written from a pianistic point of view.

Leslie England, who appears regularly as soloist in Promenade concerts, was bom in Barrow-in-Furness. Even at the tender age of five he showed remarkable musical gifts and aroused much interest among visiting pianists, including Mark Hambourg. Coming to London when he was eight years of age, he studied the piano privately for some years under various professors, until he won an open scholarship at the Royal Academy of Music. He is now on the teaching staff of the Royal Academy. He made a Scandinavian tour in 1927 and also toured South Africa in 1925 and 1929.

After many a dusty mile Weary wind of the west Serenade
My love dwelt in a northern land As torrent in summer
Oh happy eyes Love

England v. France
A commentary during play by Stewart MacPherson from the Pier Pavilion, Hastings
This evening England meets France in a table-tennis match which is the return of that played at Le Touquet in July when France won by four matches to three. The teams, which contain some of the finest table-tennis players in the world, will consist of two men and one woman each. The match will consist of four men's singles, one women's single, one men's double, and one mixed double. This is the first big match to be played in the South of England under the auspices of the English Table Tennis Association. Manchester and Birmingham are considered the headquarters of table tennis in England, though, it is declared, a wave of enthusiasm for it has swept along the south coast. So fast is the game that the ingenuity of the commentator is strained to its utmost. Description of individual strokes is impossible and only the trend of each rally can be described.
