A Radio Review

Tut: B.B.C. has organized an Elgar Celebration. Three succes- sive symphony Concerts (beginning on Wednesday next) are to be devoted entirely to his music, Sir Edward himself con- ducting certain items. In addition, next Saturday evening's ebamber-music concert is also an Elgar programme ; and on Sunday week the Regional orchestral concert includes a per- formance of "Falstaff." Thus, during the coming three weeks, listeners will have an opportunity of hearing all the major orchestral and chamber music and at least one of the

oratorios of this august English composer. . * *
