' Mark Twain '
Sir Ian MacAlister
An electrical recording of a talk broadcast on May 23 in the National Programme
Sir Ian MacAlister 's schoolboy experience of Mark Twain was in the 'nineties, when the famous American humorist, who was a great friend of Sir Ian's father, came to spend long evenings at their home in Hanover Square on one of his visits to England. In 1903, Sir Ian was in New York with his father and spent a day or two with Mark Twain. In 1907 the latter came over to England to take an honorary degree at Oxford and asked Sir Ian to put him wise about degree-giving and so forth. This was the last time they met, for Mark Twain died three years later.

COUNTRY CONCERT

Regional Programme Northern Ireland

by Beatrice Harrison Beatrice Harrison was born in India and won a Gold Medal for 'ceilo playing in open competition at ten years of age. She studied at the Royal College of Music, and afterwards went to Berlin and carried off the International Mendelssohn Prize.
Miss Harrison has won for herself a foremost place among British cellists, and her repertoire is extremely wide, covering as it does, music of all periods from the early Italian masters to Kodaly, whose unaccompanied 'Cello Sonata to be heard this evening she was the first to perform in England. The Hungarian Sonata for unaccompanied 'cello, Op. 8, by Zoltan Kodaly was composed in 1915. It is one of the most remarkable and difficult works ever written for this instrument, and is immensely interesting and effective. To achieve the interesting and novel effects with which the music abounds, Kodaly demands that the two lower strings are lowered a semitone, from G to F sharp and C to B. This innovation naturally gives the 'cello a far greater scope for tone gradation and colour, of which the instrument takes full advantage, reaching tremendous climaxes and vividly portraying Kodaly 's exceptional imagination and vitality. The melodic line is frequently accompanied by quaint pizzicatos and arpeggios.
