Bach's six Brandenburg Concertos, written at the request of the Mar-grave Christian Ludwig , were completed in 1721. The composer was then thirty-six and Parry surmises that the concertos ' were probably Bach's first ventures into the realms of absolute instrumental music on 'a symphonic scale '.
' Symphonic ' the concertos certainly are. It is hardly straining a point to claim that they are more nearly akin to the early symphonies of the mid-eighteenth century than to the old concerti grossi. The comparatively simple alternation of tutti with concertino in the old orthodox concerto grosso is here superseded. ' The various tone-groups interpenetrate and react on each other, separate from each other, and unite again ', says Schweitzer. ' The concerto is really the evolution and the vicissitudes of the theme.'

Preserving game and organising sport round the lower Nile
J. Wentworth Day
J. Wentworth Day, who a few weeks ago gave a talk on restoring a home to water-birds-a talk which he is to repeat on August 17-returned in the spring from Egypt, where he advised the Egyptian Government on the preservation of birds.
In this talk he will give a bird's-eye view of the country, as seen by one who followed the bird air route from Cairo to Assouan. He will speak about the advice he gave to the Egyptian Government ; the conclusions the Government came to : and what the country generally looks like from an aeroplane. He will also have something to say about the birds of Egypt.
Wentworth Day, author of many biographies, is bringing out in the autumn a book on ' Sport in Egypt ', to which Prince Mahomed Ali , uncle of the King of Egypt and Heir-Apparent to the throne, has contributed three chapters on the Arab horse.
