This evening listeners are to hear the first broadcast by a new combination. Most of the members are old students of Birmingham and Midland Institute, who have often played together. Jack Hill is well known as a broadcasting pianist, both in straight and syncopated numbers. His compositions include ' Black Country Blues ', which has been broadcast. The Septet aims at originality in transcription and performance.

by MARGARET ABLETHORPE
Everybody knows at least one of Daquin's pieces, this jolly little pianoforte solo in which he imitates the cuckoo. Born in Paris before the end of the seventeenth century, he was a remarkable child prodigy and played the harpsichord before King Louis XIV when he was only six. At the age of twelve he was an organist, taking the place of his godmother's husband, and on one occasion defeated the great Rameau, whose name is now so much better known to most people, in a contest for an organist's post.
He is best remembered by his many harpsichord pieces, especially the first book which contains the famous ' Cuckoo ', but he wrote for organ and other instruments as well, and left besides, a considerable volume of vocal music, both sacred and secular. He lived to the good old age of seventy-eight, dying in Paris in 1772.
