The Anthony Pini
Anthony Pini ; John Moore ;
John Francis ; Edward Robinson
One of the rarest of chamber music combinations is a cello ensemble. It will therefore be an exceedingly interesting experience to hear the present Cello Quartet, the personnel of which consists of fout of London's leading cellists of the younger school. They all originally occupied the first two desks of the London Philharmonic Orchestra, and now they fill the same position in Sir Henry Wood 's Queen's Hall Orchestra.
Anthony Pini needs no introduction to listeners, for he is a frequent broadcaster. John Moore is hardly less well known, particularly as soloist of the Stratton String Quartet. Edward Robinson and John Francis also frequently appear in various chamber music ensembles. There is probably not more than a handful of original works for four cellos, Popper's Gavotte being a notable instance. Thus most of the repertoire of the Pini Quartet consists of music specially arranged for four cellos.
