George Pizzey , who has been broadcasting for upwards of twenty years, studied with Eugene Goossens , the late Professor Frederic King , and the late Victor Beigel. He has a repertoire that includes not only the bulk of the standard compositions, but a wide range of the more scholarly and difficult works by composers of yesterday and to-day.
Pizzey was for a time the ' mystery straight singer ' with Henry Hall during that band-leader's first BBC season in 1932. He has appeared in television and also before the microphone and on the concert platform with the Barrington Quartet.

String Quartet in D flat, Op. 15 played by the Stratton String Quartet Dohnanyi, who represents the conservative element at its best in Hungarian music, has written three string quartets, the second of which, Op. 15, in D flat, was published in 1907. It reveals, says Tovey,
