THE LONDON SENIOR ORCHESTRA
Conductor, ERNEST READ
The London Senior Orchestra was started by Ernest Read four years ago for the benefit of young professional musicians who have just finished their training and are waiting for an engage-
I ment. They therefore have the oppor-I tunity of gaining valuable orchestral . experience and knowledge of the repertoire, particularly of big works. The playing of this orchestra is marked by a high standard of technical ability and excellent ensemble. The London Senior Orchestra gives a large number of concerts at schools to the mutual benefit of the students and themselves.

: A Sonata Recital

AUDREY PIGGOTT (violoncel'o)
DOROTHEA ASPINALL (pianoforte)
Dorothea Aspinall and Audrey Piggott both come from musical families and began their careers at an early age. When twelve years of age Miss Aspinall won an Exhibition at Reading University, where she studied under Howard Jones for five years. Then, at the suggestion of Dr. George Dyson , she entered for an open scholarship at the Royal College of Music. This she won at the same time that Miss Piggott won an open scholarship for 'cello.
By a curious coincidence, they took as a secondary study each other's instruments. Dorothea Aspinall studied the piano with Lilian Gaskell and Irene Scharrer and Audrey Piggott the 'cello under Ivor James , but later was granted a travelling scholarship in order to study for some months in Paris with Diran Alexanian.
These players have worked together constantly for five years and, besides frequent appearances as soloists, have given many joint recitals in London and the provinces

'Verse in Drama'
E. MARTIN BROWNE
Illustrations from Antony and Cleopatra, The Acts of Saint Peter, and Murder in the Cathedral
E. Martin Browne was a producer for several amateur companies until 1927 ; notably the Angmering Shakespeare
Festivals, and the York Settlement Community Players (who have more than once been in the British Drama League Finals). He then went to America and worked with B. Iden Payne (who was Miss Homiman's original producer at the Gaiety Theatre, Manchester, and is now Director at Stratford-on-Avon) on his Elizabethan stage, and also did modem plays with him.
Since then Martin Browne has produced many religious plays, notably The Rock (T. S. Eliot 's church-building pageant play) at Sadler's Wells, which played to ' house full ' boards for a fortnight and made over a thousand pounds profit; and Murder in the Cathedral, now running at the Mercury Theatre, London.
His talk this evening will show how the structure of verse helps the actor, and how the actor should use it.

SOPHIE WYSS (soprano)
THE PRO ARTE STRING
QUARTET: Alphonse Onnou (violin); Laurent
Halleux (violin); Germain Prévost
(viola); Robert Maas (violoncello)
(First performance in England)
Darius Milhaud first attracted attention as a member of the famous group of young French composers known as Les Six. He is now considered one of the foremost of the modem French school. A fairly prolific composer, he combines great fluency of technique with a logical and concise style of utterance.
Milhaud's Eighth Quartet was com- missioned by Mrs. Coolidge last year. It is interesting to note that the principal theme of the first movement is derived from the letters of Mrs. Coolidge's name...
This Quartet, performed for the first time at a concert of the London Contemporary Music Centre on November 19, is the most recent work of a young English composer who is rapidly making an enviable reputation. Some ol his earliest compositions were performed at Oxford, while he was an undergraduate there. Since then he has lived in Paris and his music shows pronounced traces of that environment. He is a brilliant exponent of the art of putting the new wine of modem harmony into the old bottles of classical form (as in the variations of this Quartet).

About this project

This site contains the BBC listings information which the BBC printed in Radio Times between 1923 and 2009. You can search the site for BBC programmes, people, dates and Radio Times editions.

We hope it helps you find information about that long forgotten BBC programme, research a particular person or browse your own involvement with the BBC.

Through the listings, you will also be able to use the Genome search function to find thousands of radio and TV programmes that are already available to view or listen to on the BBC website.

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time - not those of today.
