String Quartet in D, Op. 11 played by the Virtuoso String Quartet-Marjorie Hayward (violin), Irene Richards (violin), John Yewe Dyer
(viola), Cedric Sharpe (cello) Tchaikovsky's String Quartet in D,
Op. 11, was written in February, 1871, and first performed on March 28 of that year at a concert given with the deliberate purpose of raising money for a holiday. It was necessary to arouse interest by a new work ; Tchaikovsky could not afford to engage an orchestra ; so despite his faint dislike of chamber music in general, he decided on a quartet.
Although produced in such unfavourable circumstances, the Quartet is not only beautifully written but has for its slow movement one of the most popular quartet pieces ever written: the famous andante cantabile, based on a beautiful Russian folk melody.

This story concerns Mary March , the proprietress of a music shop in the small provincial town of Muddleton. Until the arrival of Martin Smith , traveller for the Melodious Music Company, it looks very much as though Marys shop will be visited by the bailiffs- The fun begins when Martin falls for
Mary and introduces distinctly unorthodox methods to save March s Music Stores from ending up in Carey Street.

A talk on subjects of the moment
Sonata for piano, Op. 2, No. 3, in C played by Edward Isaacs
The first three piano sonatas comprising Op. 2 were published by Artaria of Vienna in 1796 when Beethoven was twenty-six years of age Dedicated to Haydn, with whom Beethoven studied for a while, they show the influence of that master. Nevertheless, as will be noticed in the No. 3 in C, there are a number of distinguishing features which show Beethoven's genius in embryo.
