Set of Act Tunes and Dances - Purcell, arr. Bliss
Concerto Grosso in D minor, Op. 2 No. 5 - Geminiani
Concerto in D - Charles Avison
Suite: Idyla - Janacek
(first performance in this country)
The Concerto by Charles Avison (1709-1770) has four movements, of which the second and fourth are elaborations of extant sonatas; the first and third are believed to be based on slow movements from lost works by Scarlatti.
The Suite Idyla (1878) is an early work, written when Janacek was 24.

A series of talks commenting on current legal issues
Obstructing the Police by J. A. Coutts, Professor of Law in the University of Bristol
The offence of 'making it more difficult for the police to carry out their duties' is obviously difficult to define. There are differences at least in language and perhaps in principle between English, Scottish, and Irish courts, and reforming legislation in such an elusive concept is difficult.
To be repeated on Thursday at 6.0


J. A. Coutts

by Frank Kermode, Lecturer in English in the University of Reading
A series of four talks
"Nothing is easier than to expose Dryden as the slave of a not altogether admirable public; but no one who thinks of him as a great poet will have difficulty in seeing that this is not the whole truth - that he was in various ways remote from his audience." Mr. Kermode shows how Dryden wrote both for the contemporary 'mob of gentlemen' and for an immortal 'community of poets.'
