TOHN IRELAND'S Sonata. J won the first prize in the International Competition organized in 1909 by that groat lover of chamber music, Mr. W. W. Cobbett. Entries came from a great many countries, but all the awards went to
British composers.
The Sonata has since boen revised. It is in three Movements, the first bearing the unusual indication, Allegro leggiadro--Quick and graceful (or handsome, pretty).
The Second Movement, a ' Romance,' has first a section founded on a sympathetic
Violin tune, then (with a change of time) a Pianoforte subject in soft, big chords, and finally a return of the Violin tune. The Third and last
Movement is a Rondo, quick, agile and tree-roaming, working up to an exhilarating finish. 4.0 THE B.B.C. DANCE ORCHESTRA Personally conducted by JACK PAYNE CHRISTINE HAWKES (Concertina Solos) ROSE MARYL (Irish Humour)

PATTISON'S SALON ORCHESTRA, directed by NORRIS STANLEY Relayed from the Cafe Restaurant, Corporation Street NORRIS STANLEY (Violin) and Orchestra
IN the Second Movement of Mendelssohn's
Concerto ('Moving gently'), after a few introductory bars, the solo Violin begins a long, tranquil ' song without words.'
Following on this Movement, there is a passage of meditation and indecision for Strings (led by the soloist); then, with a preliminary fanfare, we are plunged into the last Movement, the lightest, most delicate of fleet-footed dances. <
A few bars of general bustle usher in the first main tune, a light, rapid theme of some length for the solo Violinist, lightly accompanied.
Then the Orchestra briefly toys with this tune, till a minor climax and an upward rush of the solo Violin bring the second main tune, which consists of two loud orchestral bars alternating with two soft ones.
Note that the first tune insinuates its influence in this soft phrase. The first tune is, in fact, never absent for long, and with occasional help from the second tune, provides most of the life and gaiety of the Finale.
