A talk to invalids by K. M. Briggs Last month Miss Briggs gave a talk that was specially addressed to invalids, describing how they could while away the time in making useful articles. The success of the talk established the fact that broadcasting could do much to help to make life brighter for those confined to bed, and invalids have been quick to make suggestions for programmes specially suited to their needs. Here is another talk for their special benefit.

ALBERT'SAMMONS AND ORCHESTRA
Beethoven's Violin Concerto in D, one of the greatest of all concertos written for this instrument, was composed in 1806 and first performed at the Theater-an-der-Wien in Vienna by the leader of the orchestra, Franz Clement.
It is a world of great lyrical beauty, particularly in the first and second movements. The writing throughout shows Beethoven's perfect understanding of the violin and the orchestration is especially effective. One of the most notable features of the first movement is the opening figure consisting of four drum beats, which plays an important part throughout the movement.

Arensky (born at Novgorod in 1861) studied at the Petersburg Conservatoire where Rimsky-Korsakov taught him composition. He was appointed professor of harmony and counterpoint at the Moscow Conservatoire, and later became director to the Court Chapel at Petersburg. As a composer he has more in common with Tchaikovsky than with his teacher Rimsky-Korsakov.
The Trio in D minor is dedicated to the memory of the great cellist Charles Davidov. The work is full of sincere elegiac feeling and of fresh spontaneous melody.
