Leader, Leonard Hirsch
Conductor, Eric Fogg
Toeschi was an Italian born in 1722 who settled in Germany. He studied at Mannheim under the famous composer and violinist Stamitz, and became a violinist in the Mannheim
Orchestra, of which he later succeeded Stamitz as Konzertmeister.
He composed music of all kinds, including many symphonies.
The Symphony in D opens with a lively Allegro, followed by a graceful Andante which consists of an original duet between first and second violins. The finale contains some brilliant writing for the violin, clearly showing the composer's admiration for his own instrument.

Lieut.-Commander Gould gave his first talk in the Children's Hour in January, 1934, and has remained one of the big attractions ever since. He has an unlimited store of curious information. The stars, sea serpents, the Loch Ness monster, chronometers - all are fish for his net. Today he is to tell you about the Man in the Iron Mask, the hero of Dumas's famous novel and a prisoner in the Bastille, whose identity has never been known. He was imprisoned there in 1697 and died there in 1703. Commander Gould is to tell you all that is known about him and will give you his own version as to who the man may really have been.

Symphony in F minor, Op. 12
Richard Strauss
1 Allegro ma non troppo un poco maestoso. 2 Scherzo. 3 Andante cantabile. 4 Finale : Allegro assai, molto appassionato
(First broadcast performance)
Strauss's Symphony in F minor was written during the years 1883-4. Although an interesting and well-constructed work, it gives but small indication of the future development of the composer. Summing up Strauss's works of this period, including the symphony, Ernest Newman points out that ' there is often a good deal of ardour in the writing, but it is the ardour of the intellect rather than of the emotions. Though he is sometimes dry, he is scarcely ever dull ; the dryness is a personal tang; it suggests a sinewy young athlete's joy in his own energizing and in his freedom from anything like excess of feeling '.

A recorded programme on the Oxford and Cambridge Boat Race, past and present
Devised by George Drinkwater and Jack Inglis
This programme traces the history of the historic race between Oxford and Cambridge on the Thames, from the first race rowed in 1829 down to the present day: Cambridge having won 47 and Oxford 41.
By means of records listeners will hear Lord Desborough, who rowed for Oxford in 1877, describing the famous dead heat of that year ; Harcourt Gold, who stroked Oxford in 1896, describing the only time that Oxford, or either boat. won after being behind at Barnes Bridge ; R. C. Bourne , who was the Oxford stroke in 1912, speaking of the race in which both boats sank-Oxford eventually winning the race, which was rowed again ; and F. I. Pitman , who rowed for Cambridge in 1886, speaking of the sensational race when Hammersmith Bridge was being rebuilt and it was believed that it was not possible for the two boats to go through at the same time with- . out crashing. Actually both did, with a matter of inches to spare.
Finally listeners will hear records covering the practice for this year's race, to be rowed and broadcast tomorrow.
