This is the time of year when those with sufficient money and leisure are thinking of departing to Switzerland and exchanging the dark English winter for the sunny skies and snowy slopes of the Alps. There are no better sports in existence than ski-ing, skating and tobogganing (to say nothing of ice-hockey), all of which have their centre in Switzerland. Lord Northesk last year at St. Moritz won the two principal toboggan races - the Grand National and the Curzon Cup - so he is well qualified to describe the attractions of winter sports.

THE AMAR QUARTET : Licco AMAR,

IT is strange that a man who is of Spanish origin, was born and educated in France, and has lived in Switzerland, should come to be regarded as a German Composer. When one learns that, added to such a history, the most powerful influence in Jarnnch's music is that of an Italian, Busoni, one's brain begins to reel. Busoni, however, lived many years in Germany, was a very individual and cosmopolitan figure, and as far as one can classify him, probably comes nearest to the modern German school. Similarly, Jarnach (bom 1892) has gone to Germany, and his music has gained something of the modern German concentration and sternness, but also retains much of the Latin clarity and colouring. This String Quartet of his is in two Movements. the First ' Fairly sustained,' the Second ' Quick, very lively, and with fire.'
