Mr. Shepherd Munn, who, after a course of study in Leipzig, bids fair to take a high place among pianists of today, was for some time a member of the B.B.C.'s staff, first at Edinburgh and then at Newcastle Station. His pianoforte playing, and his participation as an Uncle in the Children's Hour, and in many other broadcasts, are still happily remembered in those parts of the world.

This Sonata is a very interesting example of the fusion of classical and modern ideals. Its first performance in Britain will give musicians a good illustration of its composer's modern idiom. Dobrowen was for some years in Dresden as a Professor of Composition; he is now Conductor of the Philharmonic Society of Oslo. A Russian by birth, he is winning a big reputation as a conductor, for his masterly handling of the orchestra, and for the originality and fidelity of his readings.
