Dvořáks Piano Quintet was written in 1887. It is one of the finest of his chamber works: ' an absolute revelation ', says Ottokar Sourek , ' of the personality of Dvorak, a man apparently locked within himself, moving only in the sphere of divine beauty, now plunged in gloomy meditation, his vision lost in eternity, now smiling brightly, bubbling over with happiness and breaking forth in outbursts of the frankest joy. Such a spirit was Dvorak, and thus he appears in this quintet-one of the freshest and most characteristic creations of his genius.' The composer makes brilliant use of the ' Furiant ' in the scherzo movement.

3.14 Prelude, L'Apres-midi d'un faune (A Faun's Reverie) Debussy
Concerto for small orchestra, Op. 34
Debussy's ' L'Apres-midi d'un faune ' is a musical interpretation of a poem by the French poet, Stephane Mallarme. It has been said that the poem is so elusive in meaning, so subtle in its refinements of language, that it is practically untranslatable into another tongue. Debussy's is perhaps the only medium suited to an exposition of the poem.
The poem is concerned with a faun who, waking at dawn in the forest, tries to recall what happened to him before he fell asleep. His musings are confused with visions of nymphs who spent the afternoon with him and the possibility that the whole thing has been a dream coloured with the music of his own flute.

The Police of Great Britain v.
The Combined Services
A commentary on some of the fights by Dan Titchener from
Harringay Arena Here is a chance for those who either respect or fear the guardians nf law and order to see how the police constable fares when he really gets going with the gloves on. This is the thirteenth contest between the Police and the Combined Services, and so far the Bobbies have been unbeaten. They will put a formidable array of constabular flesh into the ring. Their team will include W. Gallagher of the Ulster Constabulary, formerly Irish and Scottish Welterweight Champion, and J. Mc. Mullen, the present Irish Heavyweight Champion. The Services, it is expected, will feel the loss of the four Air Force boxers who were killed in an air crash in Northern Rhodesia in April this year. Dan Titchener , who will give the commentary, will be remembered for past broadcasts in which he has given commentaries on various London matches. He is closely associated with arhateur boxing as a trainer and referee.
