This programme is notable for the first performance of three works, the first the String Quartet of Honegger, the second the Third String Quartet of Elizabeth Maconchy. The third is by the Italian, Luigi Dallapiccola , who is as yet not well known in this country. The Divertimento to be heard this evening was composed in 1934 for the Carillon Society of Geneva. It is dedicated to Alfred Casella and based on four anonymous texts of the thirteenth century, the underlying moods of which are melancholy, gaiety, joy, and despair.
Bartok's Fifth String Quartet is the subject of a short article which . will be found on page 12.
