Emanuel Feuermann (violoncello), and Symphony Orchestra, conducted by Malcolm Sargent : Concerto in D (Anton Kraft ) (formerly attributed to Haydn)-l Allegro moderato. 2 Adagio. 3 Allegro.
One of the most popular Cello Concertos in the repertoire is the Concerto in D which has always been attributed to Haydn. In view of the very distinct Haydnesque characteristics of the writing, no one has had any reason to doubt its authenticity. Recently, however, owing to the researches of Dr. Hans Volkmann , it has been proved that this Concerto was composed not by Haydn but by his pupil, Anton Kraft (1752-1820). This work is too well known to need any detailed description, but it is both interesting and amusing to note that many commentators have drawn attention to the likeness of the principal theme of the Finale to the well-known nursery song ' Here we go gathering nuts in May'.

This feature has been broadcast every Wednesday since the beginning of the year, the idea being to let home listeners hear a talk, or possibly two, of general interest that have already been given in the Empire programmes. The talker himself sometimes comes again to the microphone; more usually the talks are recorded. They may cover any subject of interest under the sun.

' London Move'
Kevin Fitzgerald
Kevin Fitzgerald and his wife and family remained for five years in the basement premises that were the subject of his last talk, and then they had to look for pastures new. He will describe in his amusing way the search they made for a new home ; but by now they were acclimatised-they knew damp walls when they saw them, and were no strangers to the weird smells labelled ' mousey '. He will relate how they won through in the end and discovered the whole upper part of an old Georgian house, and the adventures they had when they moved in. As Kevin Fitzgerald is now established on the air as a humorist, listeners will expect much, and should not be disappointed. This talk is as good as any that have Preceded it.

with Louis Levy and his Symphony
(By arrangement with the Gaumont-British
Picture Corporation Ltd.)
Janet Lind and Robert Ashley
As this is the last presentation in this series, the programme tonight will take a slightly different form. Louis Levy has had a big post-bag about this feature and he is going to try and please everybody tonight by playing as many as possible of the tunes which listeners have liked in previous programmes-some in their entirety and short excerpts from others.
So, with the now famous march which you have all heard in the cinema, we bid farewell for the time being to Music from the Movies.

A running commentary on The Third Test Match by Commander C. O. Foley and John N. Lampson from New Cross Stadium
This is the first of five contests between England and Overseas. The first, staged at Wimbledon, resulted in a win for England by one point ; the second, staged at Manchester, ended in a draw. So a close and exciting contest seems promised tor tonight at New Cross.
