Debussy's Sonata for violin and piano, the third of a projected set of six sonatas for various instruments, was the last work he completed. It was written in the winter of 1916-17, when the composer had already been suffering for more than a year from the incurable disease from which he died early in 1918. III as he was, Debussy played the piano part in the first performance in Paris (May, 1917), with Gaston Poulet as the violinist. It was the composer's last appearance in Paris as a performer. He himself wrote of this Sonata as 'one of those countless little intimate tragedies that overwhelm you without making any more noise than a rose shedding its petals, leaving the rest of the world at peace'.

(Western Division) conducting the Augmented BBC Variety
Meredith Willson arrived in England on a visit a fortnight ago and has accepted the BBC's invitation to conduct the Augmented BBC Variety Orchestra tonight before going up to Scotland to spend a few days of his holiday there.
He is not unknown to listeners in this country, for his orchestra, playing from the NBC's San Francisco studio, has been heard in this country under his conductorship in a ' Five Hours Back ' programme.
Not yet 33, Meredith Willson has been a musician since he was 1 years old. At 16 he was playing under Sousa, at 19 under Toscanini and other great conductors of the New York Philharmonic.
His name is best known in connection with ' Chiffon Jazz', for which he is famous. These arrangements have been described as ' a unique presentation of jazz, not as the blaring, unmusical creature she has been called by her critics, but a delicate creation in rhythm, with point and counterpoint clearly etched against a filmy veil of interlocking harmonies '.
