The key of C minor seems to have appealed to Brahms whenever he wanted to express emotions of a tragic character. In the C minor String Quartet though still adhering to the classical design of sonata form, Brahms's treatment is much fuller and freer, and, with the exception of the third movement, the thematic material is closely related throughout, since it is for the most part derived from the first theme of the first movement. This initial theme, like so many of Brahms's tunes, is based on the notes of the common chord (C minor). Surging upwards on the first violin, it immediately defines the tense and stormy mood of the whole movement.

' Men and Machines '
A dramatic interlude written for broadcasting by PHYLLIS BENTLEY
A great thinker in the nineteenth century wondered whether our many mechanical inventions had really increased our happiness. Today you will hear of the great difference in our lives which the use of machinery has made. The shop windows you pass in the street show you the many articles that are turned out cheaply in thousands by machinery nowadays, instead of being made one by one by skilled hands. We are still inventing new machines and sometimes we wonder whether we won't all become like machines. The broadcast today will put before you some of the advantages and disadvantages of machinery.

Many listeners will have travelled by the Irish Mail, but many of them may think when they hear this talk that they have never heard a more entertaining account of the journey. But then Harry Dean is more than a dining-car attendant-he is a great character, a poet, a painter, a humorist, and an observer of nature and human nature. He has waited on Royalty, he can tell you about Snooks the highwayman who lies buried near Boxmoor, and he knows the real beauty of North Wales. He has also a fund of good stories and a way of telling them. When next you travel to Holyhead you will be likely to seek the acquaintance of Harry Dean.
