Light Music by British Composers Lancashire Clog Dance Arthur Wood
The majority of the programmes broadcast by Reginald King have been programmes of music by British composers, such as the one he is giving this afternoon.
King is an enthusiast for British music and is proud to have created a standard catalogue of light music by British composers for a leading firm of publishers who believe the British composer of light music can hold his own with any of his foreign competitors. The names in the catalogue whose music listeners will hear this afternoon are Idris Lewis , Geoffrey Henman , Frank Tapp , Montague Phillips , and Arthur Wood.
Reginald King 's new suite ' In the Chiltems ' —so far his most ambitious work-was first broadcast on August 2 and is breaking all records as a radio favourite. It has been played on the air by light orchestras 'all over the country, and has already been broadcast thirty times.

Sonata in B minor
Lento assai-Allegro energico-Andante sostenuto-Allegro energico-Stretto-Presto-Andante sostenuto
Played by Egon Petri (pianoforte)
Liszt's only sonata was completed on February 2, 1853, and dedicated to Schumann in acknowledgment of the dedication of the latter's great Fantasia, Op. 17. The first public performance was given in Berlin, in January, 1857, by Hans von Biilow, who played it on the first grand piano manufactured by his friend Carl Bechstein.
In every way the Sonata was an epoch-making work. It is undoubtedly one of Liszt's greatest compositions and on every page of it there is evidence of the immense imagination thut went to its making.
