Holiday Reading
Mary Stocks
Mrs. Stocks, who is to give this evening's book talk, is the widow of J. L. Stocks , late Vice-Chancellor of Liverpool University. Many listeners will remember her broadcast in the series ' Gambling ' in January this year, and also her broadcast in March in ' Men Talking ', in which series, by the way, she was the first woman to speak. She is especially well known to northern listeners, and is famous for the number of Royal Commissions she has served on.

The BBC Orchestra
(Section C)
Led by Laurance Turner
Conducted by Malcolm Sargent
Breton Rhapsody
Grand Zoological Fantasy, The
Carnival of Animals
1 Introduction and Royal March of the Lion. 2 Hens and Cocks. 3 Mules. 4 Tortoises. 5 The Elephant. 6 Kangaroos. 7 Aquarium. 8 Long-eared Personages. 9 The Cuckoo in the Heart of the Wood. 10 Aviary. 11 Pianists. 12 Fossils. 13 The Swan. 14 Finale
Solo pianofortes, ERNEST LUSH and JOHN WILLS
Saint-Saens's ' The Carnival of Animals ', scored for two pianos, two violins, viola, cello, bass, flute, clarinet, harmonica, and xylophones, consists of fourteen short numbers. The music is full of charm, wit, and fancy. Several numbers are delightfully satirical, such as No. 4, which is based on two themes from Offenbach's Orpheus in the Underworld (the first from the final ballet and the second from Act 1) ; No. 5, which is a humorous distortion for double-bass and piano of Berlioz's Danse des Sylphes' and Mendelssohn's ' Song of a Summer Night'; No. 11, which imitates an awkward beginner playing five-finger exercises and scales in various keys (we have all suffered from this disturbing animal!); and No. 12, which is a queer mixture of two well-known popular French airs, Saint-Saens's own ' Danse macabre' and an air from Rossini's Barber of Seville. No. 14 is a very jolly and brilliant affair in which several of the animals are introduced to each other with harmonious effect.
