When Harry Farmer was still in short trousers he showed musical leanings, and was put under a teacher when only eight years old. At the age of twelve he played in a concert at Walsall Town Hall, where he was heard by the parish church organist. The organist was so impressed that he offered to teach him without fees on the organ of the church.
By the time Farmer was thirteen years of age he was playing regularly for church services, and had already broadcast two piano solos from the Birmingham studios.
A scholarship, won at the age of fourteen, gave him two years of tuition at the Walsall Institution, and subsequently at the Midland Festival of Music he won both first-class and second-class awards. Farmer's career as a cinema organist started when he was fifteen years old, and immediately he began to develop a different style of organ playing.

(First broadcast performance)
Although the flute is one of the most agile instruments of the orchestra and is capable of a very fair range of beautiful sound, it has been very much neglected as a solo instrument by composers. The most outstanding works in the repertoire are the two concertos by Mozart, the concerto by Carl Reinecke , and the lovely sonata for flute, harp, and viola by Debussy. One of the very few modern composers to exploit the flute as a solo instrument is Rutland Boughton, whose Flute Concerto will receive its first performance this afternoon.

The first broadcast talk by Kevin Fitzgerald , on ' The Lost Art of Staying at Home' , stamped him as a broadcaster whose material is as good as his voice. It is not surprising that in the short space of two years he has given nearly fifty broadcasts.
Listeners who heard his talk
From Farm to Office ' in the series
Swapping Horses ' will know something of the vicissitudes of his life. He has farmed his father's farm in Ireland, earned his living as a teamster in Canada, and is now a member of the staff of a big industrial firm.
In today's talk he is to give some practical advice on how to tell a story likely to interest children. His own story, The Fairy and the Rabbit ', seems to answer the bill because it pleased his own daughter Prudence, a little girl of nine. She still likes it as much as when it was first told to. her three years ago.
Variations and Fugue on a Theme of Handel (Op. 24) played by Solomon (pianoforte)
In addition to the Variations on a Theme by Haydn and various movements in variation form, Brahms wrote a set for piano duet, Variations on a Theme by Robert Schumann , and five sets for piano solo. Among the last-mentioned is the Variations on a Theme by Handel, which is Brahms's crowning achievement in variation form.
The Handel Variations were composed in 1861 when Brahms was conductor of the Hamburg Ladies' Choir. The theme is taken from the Little Suite in B flat in the second set of Handel's harpsichord pieces. In these twenty-five variations the immense technical resources and great imagination of the composer are shown to the full by the wonderful variety of treatment and expressiveness that are secured within the strict limitations of the form.
