PIANOFORTE MUSIC OF MOZART
Played by EDWARD ISAACS
Sonata in G (K.283)
1. Allegro ; 2. Andante ; 3. Presto
(From North National)
EDWARD ISAACS has been broadcasting for ten years. Ho was one of the first artists to do so from Trafford Park in 1922, and since that day he has been heard by listeners on numberless occasions, particularly in the Foundations of Music series. Mr. Isaacs' repertory is so extensive that it is difficult to say in what he excels, but in Mozart listeners have had proof not only that ho is completely at home, but that his Mozart playing is impeccable. He is a Manchester musician, and music in Manchester has owed a great deal to him ; at the same time, his studios abroad brought him into touch with a number of distinguished musicians, Busoni, Godowsky, Nikisch, Baekhaus, Joachim, Cortot, and others, with many of whom he formed close friendships. About a year ago long-threatened blindness completely overtook him, but it would seem that so tragic a handicap has affected his pianoforte playing only by adding strength and beauty to his interpretations.

' How the Mind Works in the Child—I'

National Programme London

By The Hon. MEDICAL DIRECTOR of The East
London Child Guidance Clinic: ' What the Child starts with ' MODERN psychology offers a guide to more exact knowledge of the motives of conduct, both in the child and in the grown-up. It has acquired its position as a science by years of observation and comparison, and can now apply its discoveries to the practical problems encountered by the normal individual. The first part. of the series will deal with the workings of the child mind. The early formative years are of immense importance, and most parents realize that skilled training and guidance must be applied to the delicate task of early nurture and education.

ARTHUR CATTERALL , who is now a Fellow of the Royal Manchester College of Music, studied there in his early days, under Willy-Hess and Adolf Brodsky. Principal of the Manchester College. It was, by the way, Brodsky who gave the first performance of Tchaikovsky's Violin Concerto, which Mr. Catterall played so brilliantly at a recent Promenade Concert. His first appearance as a soloist was at a Halle Concert in 1903. In 1909 he was in London as Leader of the Promenade Concerts ; later, he led the Hallu Orchestra, which post he resigned after a few years to devote himself to solo work and his own String Quartet. Since 1929 he has been leader of the B.B.C. Symphony Orchestra, and he will continue to lead the Orchestra in the forthcoming season of Symphony Concerts.
