Some phonograph records are musical events. Each month TIME notes the noteworthy:*
Mendelssohn: Midsummer-Night's Dream: Overture (Columbia, two records. $2 ea.). Probably the best, certainly the most popular of all Mendelssohn, this overture was written when the composer was a youth of 17. Columbia's new rendition is conducted ably but not brilliantly by Elie Cohen, Chef d'Orchestre at the Paris Opera Comique.
