EDERN JONES (Baritone)
FIGARO, the famous town barber of Seville, was a creation of Beaumarchais. He appears in both this Opera of Rossini and Mozart's Marriage of Figaro. In this gay ' patter ' song he struts about, proclaiming the delights of being trusted and looked up to by all sorts of people, especially lovers, who confide in him and ask his advice and help.
STANFORD'S collections of Irish folk songs are famous. One of the most engaging of such songs is My Love's an Arbutus, in which the cool charm of the woods is mated to a flexibly curving melody that seems to express in music the grace of the maiden who is like
... tin arbutus by the borders of Lene,
So slender and shapely in her girdle of green.
THE Russian, Anton Rubinstein , one of the greatest Pianists of last century, achieved fame also (at any rate, in his own country) as Conductor nnd Composer. He became Master of Music nt the Imperial Russian Court, and established the St. Petersburg Conservatoire of Music, of which he was Principal for several years. For these services he received a title of nobility. Successful world touts followed: after one American tour it is said he was offered £25.000 to come back and give another fifty concerts, but his dread of the voyage prevailed and he refused. His Fancy Dress Ball Suite, one of the numbers from which is now to be played, was originally a set of twenty Pianoforte Duets.
WHEN Robert Hichens ' novel, The Garden of Allah, was dramatized some years ago,
Sir Landon Ronald wrote the incidental music for the production. The full suite from this music consists of the preludes and interludes to the various parts of the play, re-scored.

EVERY year public interest in the University
Boat Race seems to start earlier, and even the Trial Eights now receive almost as much interest as the Race itself did a generation or two ago. By this time, of course, the composition of the rival boats is beginning to settle itself, and to the eye of experience tho form tif the crews is taking -shape.
