NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

A lecture-recital will be given tonight in the Paine Concert Hall at 8.30 by Madame Wanda Landowska, of Paris, an international authority on the harpsichord and its literature. The subject of Madame Landowska's lecture, which will be delivered in French, is "Les Precurseurs francais de Sebastien Bach". To illustrate the tyes of French music which have influenced the compositions of Bach, Madame Landowska will play on the harpsichord several selections from the works of Rameau, Lully, Couperin and others of the early composers for the harpsichord.

In speaking of the recital tonight, Professor E. B. hill '94, of the department of the music said:

"Madame Landowska's concert presents an unusual opportunity to hear eighteenth century music played on the instrument for which it was composed--the harpsichord. After listening to the restless modern music which strains itself internally in trying to be original, it is a distinct relief to be able to hear the simple, unpretentious music of the past."
