An Eastern Comedy in One Act, by GEORGE CALDERON
On a hilltop outside an Arabian city there sits at the entrance to his hut one Hafiz, smoking a hookah. In peaceful contemplation he regards the white roof-tops which lie shimmering below. Life in > the East is never hurried, and towards the close of one's days it becomes even more tranquil and philosophical. A Figure leaning on a staff, and carrying a bunch of roses, approaches. It is friend Hariri.

THE BIRMINGHAM STUDIO ORCHESTRA, conducted by JOSEPH LEWIS
IF we do not often hear the larger works of Moszkowski (1854-1925). he is a familiar friend to very many who have played his pianoforte duets, From Foreign Parts, or, of recent years, heard his light orchestral music broadcast. He composed also in the larger forms-a a Symphony, Joan of Arc, Concertos for Pianoforte and Violin, a Ballet, and the Opera, Boabdil, The Last King of the Moors. This is founded on an incident in the war of the Spaniards and the Moors in. the fifteenth century. The Ballet Music taken from the work consists of three pieces, the first of which we are to hear. It is a Spanish Malaguena (in three time, with a characteristic rhythm beginning with whole beat, two halves, whole.)
