Elgar's' Cockaigne' overture is a musical picture of London and Londoners. In this work Elgar has mirrored the varied characteristics of the city's life and has recorded the beating of the city's heart. The dignity of London, its gaiety, its citizens, from the pairs of lovers in the park to the whistling street urchin, the Guard's band on the march, the Salvation Army, the quiet of a City church, the bustle of the streets-all are set forth in the music.
(Solo pianoforte, CLIFFORD CURZON )
Strauss's Burlesque was written at the age of twenty-one, when the composer was assistant conductor at Meiningen, under von Billow. He dedicated it to von Büllow in the hope that that great pianist and conductor would play it, but von Biilow did not appear to be impressed, so after a few years Strauss re-dedicated it to Eugen d'Albert. It received its first performance in 1890 in a programme that also included the nrst performance of Strauss's ' Death and Transfiguration '.
The Burlesque is a charming little work, deftly and brilliantly written for the solo instrument and scored with great clarity and neatness.

An appeal on behalf of THE HIGHWAY CLUBS by CHRISTOPHER STONE , D.S.O.,
The seven Highway Clubs are named after the once notorious Rat-cliff Highway, and serve the district between the Tower and RatclifT Cross through which it ran. They provide opportunities for many things which are often denied to the young workers in great cities-for games, sports and hobbies, camps, holidays, and convalescence ; for cultural and intellectual interests; for friendship, loyalty, and service. Their purpose is to create communities whose members can themselves enjoy greater fullness of life and become men and women who will make a saner and happier world. The main part of the membership of more than a thousand consists of boys, girls, and young men and women between fourteen and twenty-five.
Just when schemes were in hand for extending Club and Camp work, three buildings have been unexpectedly doomed to demolition. Last year, members contributed £2,500, and friends outside gave £3,200, but this did not suffice for maintenance and left nothing for the rebuilding on which the Clubs' very existence depends, and which must cost at least £15,000.
Contributions will be gratefully acknowledged, and should be addressed to [address removed].
