Quartet in F, Op. 74, No. 2 played by The Kutcher String Quartet-Samuel Kutcher (violin) ; Max Salpeter (violin) ; Leonard Rubens (viola) ;
George Roth (cello)
Haydn's last sets of quartets, from Op. 71 onwards, belong to 'the time of his first London visit, when he was engaged in writing the famous ' London ' symphonies. The Quartets Op. 74 were composed in 1793 and dedicated to Count Apponyi. The No. 2, in F, to be played this evening, is the least known of the three. The finale is a good example of the use Haydn made of Slavonic folk-dance rhythm.

Probably Margaret Field-Hyde has done more singing of early English songs in general and Purcell in particular than any other singer in this, country. Her enthusiasm for Purcell's music existed a good many years" before she decided to become a singer, and this enthusiasm was greatly increased by early successes in revivals of Purcell operas, especially King Arthur in Cambridge twelve years ago.
Recently she gave a recital of Elizabethan and Purcell songs at the National Gallery, and she seldom gives a song recital in which Purcell does not feature prominently.
