A very considerable number of young trees has be'ii plane-id out during the past pluming season, and it is» thought advisable to draw attenicvx to this.

Mr. CYRIL SCOTT AND HIS ART WORK. [Newspaper Article] — Toora and Welshpool Ensign and South Gippsland Observer — 23 January 1914

■ Mr. CYRIL SCOTT AND HIS ART WORK. Mr. Scott, belongs to "the young progressive school of Knglish com posers" of which Dr. Richard Strauss icccnily spoke, aiul it is evident that Strauss Relieves that in tho future Knglish music will play an important part. Sir. Scott's gifts have been re cognised in England even by tlio.se who object to his going out of the beaten track, and many of his sonjjs have become great favourites. His piano pieces, wc are told, may not please many at first hearing. Tho ex traordinary juxtaposition of varioui tonalities may sound strango to our ears, but when we have become ac customed to them wo are surprised that other composers had not dis covered such striking tone-colourings. Air. Claude Dobussy, who himself has created a new musical language in which to utter his emotions and ideas, rogaitds Mr. Scott as one of the rarest artists of tho prosont generation.
