MODERN BRITISH PIANOFORTE MUSIC
Played by EDGAR L. BAINTON
EDGAR BAINTON is one of tho distinguished musicians of the present day who look back gratefully to having enjoyed Sir Charles Stan ford's teaching at the Royal College. He now takes a foremost place himself in the teaching world as Principal of the Newcastle-on-Tyno Conservatoire. As a conductor, too, he has done much to improve the standard of music in the North, both choral and orchestral. Much of his music has been played in London, at the Proms and other concerts, and he has been long known to wireless listeners not only as a composer, but as conductor and pianist. He has taken part in broadcast programmes as soloist and in chamber music, at most, if. not all, of the B.B.C.'s stations.

The Hon. HAROLD NICOLSON , C.M.G. :
' Does Modern Literature Exist ? '
IN his last talk Mr. Nicolson investigated the spirit of the age ; does a corresponding ' new spirit ' exist, in literature ? Out of the many specialized and diverse branches of modern literature Mr. Nicolson this evening extracts a common factor. A feeling of discontent is one sign of tho times ; another is a disbelief in all forms of sentimentality. A third and even more important element in the attitude of modern writers is their emphasis on experienoo as opposed to revelation: analysis of moods as opposed to simplification of emotion. This last point will be taken up more fully next week by Mr. Nicolson.
