ONLY a few of Boocherini's four hundred and sixty - seven instrumental works have survived the neglect into which his music as a whole declined after the popularity he enjoyed for a great part of his life. But even from those few it is clear that he was a 'cellist who knew his own and other instruments as only great artists do, and a composer with a irich fund of melody at command. He is beginning, within the last few years, to enjoy something like a vogue once more, and in France the enthusiasm of his old admirer,
Picquot, has done much to revive nn interest in his music. A new edition of Picquot's biography and list of the music has recently appeared ; it was first published in 1851. Boccherini's career was one of varied fortune ; held in honour and affection for years by the whole world of music, and counting among his patrons such great people as the Infante Don Luis of Spain. King Friedrich Wilhelm the Second of Prussia, and Prince Lucien Buonaparte , he spent his old age in poverty and ill-health, surrounded by cares and troubles.

Professor J. B. S. HALDANE
PROFESSOR J. B. S. HALDANE is one of the most brilliant of the younger scientists at Cambridge. He is the son of Dr. J. S. Haldane , who will be remembered by listeners for his talk in the ' Science and Religion ' series in 1930. Educated at Eton and New College, Oxford, he served throughout the war in the Black Watch and was twice wounded. In 1919 he became a Fellow of New College, and in 1922 went to Cambridge to join Sir Frederick Hopkins ' department as Sir William Dunn Reader in Biochemistry. Besides numerous papers and books on technical subjects, he is the author of two or three semi-popular works, such as ' Daedalus : or Science and the Future' and Calliniars: a Defence of Chemical Warfare ' in the ' Today and Tomorrow Series,' and a fas- cinating collection of essavs under the title of ' Possible Worlds.' He was a contributor to the first Points of View series in 1929. Next week Sir Oliver Lodge will sum up the symposium.
