by Lucy Scollick
Lucy Scollick used to broadcast from
Liverpool in the early days of radio
-days when artists there had to enter the studio through a cafe in Lord Street. She came to London ten years ago and has been broadcasting regularly ever since.
It is of great interest that she was one of the last of Fanny Davies pupils. On her advice she went to
Vienna for six months and gave her first London recital at the Wigmore
Hall on her return. She is well known for her solo recitals on the air and has also broadcast in sonata recitals with Hildegard Arnold , the cellist.

18—'Pierre marries Natasha'
A serial reading by Eric Gillett
Napoleon was driven out of Russia, but the Rostov family suffered cruelly. Prince Andrew, in spite of Natasha's devoted nursing, died of his wounds, and Natasha's young brother, Petya, had been killed in the raid which set Pierre free. Pierre also learned that his own unhappy marriage had been brought to an end by the death of his wife.

A London Symphony
Vaughan Williams
1 Lento-Allegro risoluto, molto pesante. 2 Lento. 3 Scherzo (Nocturne) : Allegro vivace. 4 Andante con moto-Maestoso alia marcia (quasi lento)-Epilogue (Andante sostenuto)
Vaughan Williams 's ' London ' Symphony is actually a musical impression of London just before the war began, but it is equally descriptive of the great city as it is today. The first movement is thought to be descriptive of morning in the city ; the Westminster chimes are heard. The slow second movement is based largely on the plaintive melody which introduces it. The third movement is called a Scherzo, but that is by no means its feeling ; 'Nocturne' is a better title, for it is an impression of London by night, and even though the tempo is brisk, the music strikes a note of sadness and mystery. The fourth movement is full of bustling energy with a preponderating and majestic march tune. Later, after the chimes have been heard again, a solemn epilogue brings the symphony to a close.
