Recordings Hey-day of Romance


Schumann : Sooata in A minor, op. 105. for violin and piano, played by Adolf Busch and Rudolf Serkin (two records-4 sides). 0NE can but envy the freshness and sincerity of this sonata, written in the hey-day of Romance, and the two soloists set forth its moods and emotions with mutual sympathy and a very finished art.

Webster Booth and Denis Noble are beard in " Fifteen my number is " from the Barber of Seville, with the Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra, under Basil Cameron: on the reverse side—by the same soloists—"'Tis the spring of all invention," from the same opera by Rossini.

Two piano solos are recorded this month — the soloist is Benno Moiseiwitsch. Russian Fairy Tale, op. 42, No. 1, is by Medther and the Toccata by Khatchatourian. The pieces are well-contrasted and probably unfamiliar to most of us. Medtner's style is a little faded to-day but the Toccata is brilliant. C. G. M.

New C.T.S. publications are the Encyclical Divino Afflante Spiritu, by Pope Pius XII (3d.) and Out of the Mists, by F. A. E. (3d.)
