(Second Series)
Intermezzo in B Flat Minor (Op. 117, No. 2); Intermezzo in E (Op. 116. No. 6); Capriccio in D Minor (Op. 116, No. 7)
THE first piece makes expressive use of harp-
Ike motifs ; the harmonies touch the spirit. of tenider reflection, in a mood almost of melancholy.
The other Intermezzo is pensive and tender in full, rich chords, at the start, breaks into a more lightly accompanied melody in the middle, takes on an impassioned note. and then, with the gentlest breathing, returns to its former mood. At the end there is a fond recollection of the middle tune, before the brief picture fades away.
The Capriccio surges along in agitation that nothing can assuage.

THE cricket season of 1928 having finally drawn to a close, interest shifts around the globe, and the forthcoming tour in Australia will henceforward attract all the attention of cricket-lovers until the last Test is over and ! tke Ashes have been lost or retained. In this evening's talk Colonel Trevor will discuss the composition of the English team in the light of the end-of-season play.

'Like a magic Concert, hear it whenever you will.'
The Artists will be:
Jean Allistone, Frank Denton, Miriam Ferris, Ord Hamilton, Tommy Handley, Harry Pepper, Stanley Vilven and Wireless Chorus

Tommy Handley has recently been discharged from the Army as a general nuisance.
After listening to our surprise item from King's Cross, which occurred about the same time, he followed this train of thought and decided that the permanent way to success must be along those lines and is considering new means of transport.
As this is a new departure, it is difficult to gauge in what capacity Tommy will arrive on the platform; but after so many signal successes, there is no risk of a breakdown. He himself will be in the van and expressly undertakes to guard against accidents and deliver the goods to all stations.
There were some further points he wanted to run over before being side-tracked, but we pulled the communication cord and brought him to a standstill.
