Helen MacLean , as secretary and Scottish Organiser of the National Labour Organisation Scottish Council, has been lecturing in the Western Highlands under the auspices of the Ministry of Information. This recent tour has shown her how, after a year of war, the morale of the Highlands is not only unimpaired but finer than ever, and she has many interesting and amusing stories to tell about the folk of the North and their reaction to the present times.
Quartet in B flat, Op. 50, No. 1 played by The Marie Dare Quartet-Marjorie Hayward (violin) ; Irene Richards (violin) ; Olive Davidson (viola) ;
Marie Dare (cello)
This series, which began last week with Haydn's Quartet in D, Op. 20, No. 4, introduces some of the more unfamiliar quartets which, for no good reason, are generally neglected by string quartet ensembles.
The quartet to be broadcast this afternoon is the first of a set of six which werescomposed in 1784-7 and dedicated to the King of Prussia, Frederick William II , the son of Frederick the Great. Frederick William II was a cellist himself and that may account for the fact that the cello part of this quartet requires considerable technical ability.
