played by Bratza
Born in Novisad, Yugoslavia, in 1904, Bratza is the son of a photographic artist. When he was six years old he began to study the violin under the celebrated Sevcik of Vienna. Eight years later he had taken the State Diploma of the Meisterschule in that city, being the youngest pupil to obtain that distinction. He had the honour of playing before the crowned heads of Russia, Austria, Serbia, Roumania, and Montenegro. He has been a naturalised British subject since 1929.

Symphony No. 1, in E flat played by BBC Scottish Orchestra
Leader, J. Mouland Begbie
Conductor, Ian Whyte
Much less often played than the . popular Second Symphony in B minor, Borodin's First Symphony is in some respects -an even finer work. Its first movement is one of the most remarkable in the whole history of the post-Beethoven symphony, practically the whole of the thematic material being stated in the first few bars of the slow introduction. The other three movements-the Berliozian scherzo with its folk-songish trio, the oriental slow movement, the breezy, though rather Schumannesque, finale-if by no means as equally delightful.
It is almost incredible that this symphony was the work of a self-taught amateur, though it is true that Balakirev claimed that ' every bar of it was criticised and overhauled by me'. It was begun in 1862 but not completed until 1867.

Faure's Piano Quartet is an early work-it was written in 1879. -fts four movements, including a delicious scherzo of gossamer-like texture, show the composer's mastery of classical construction and his sensitiveness for colour. The music is full of lovely tunes and supple and striking rhythms, and the development of the themes is carried out with ingenuity and a keen ear for sonorous effect.

7—' Towards a Christian Britain '
T. S. Eliot , Litt.D.
Leader, Paul Beard
Conductor: Sir Adrian Boult
Tchaikovsky's Fourth Symphony was composed during the year of the composer's unhappy marriage, which within three months resulted in a final separation. Through the financial help of his strange friend Nadejda von Meek (whom he never'met) he was enabled to go to Italy, where, in Venice, he completed this F minor Symphony.
The central idea of the whole work is Fate, which is represented by a recurring theme that is heard on the bassoons and horns at the outset.
