Germaine Tailleferre is the most distinguished woman composer in France. She first became known as a member of the now famous group of young composers called ' Les Six', the other members including
Auric, Poulenc, and Honegger.
The string quartet in C sharp minor, which was composed in 1919, is in the form of a sonatina, the treatment of which is both free and modern. The first movement is elegant and clearly-written music and the scherzo to which it is linked shows the influence of Ravel, once the composer's master. The finale is a saltarello and is characteristic of the composer's polytonal style.

from Claridge's Hotel (Cello solos played by GEIGER)
Austrian-born Josef Geiger came to London some ten years ago, and has been following a musical career in this country ever since. To visiting Royalty and diplomats he is perhaps the best known of all London's orchestra leaders. He has been at Claridge's for the past eight years, and makes a speciality of remembering the favourite pieces of music of notabilities.
Josef Geiger comes of a musical family. At the age of seven he was playing in his father's orchestra, and all of his five brothers are musicians. One of these is now in India as musical director to the Maharajah of Patiala. He is handing the tradition down, for of his three children, one plays the violin, one the piano, while the third is studying ballet dancing.

(In collaboration with the Canadian
' Chekhov '
Paul Shishkoff , who this evening gives his recollections of Chekhov, first met the great Russian writer when the speaker was a boy of ten. Living in the country some fifty miles from Moscow, his parents had Chekhov as a neighbour, and Paul Shishkoff will recall fishing expeditions, rambles through the countryside and visits to the little cottage in the middle of the apple orchard, in which the dramatist did so much work. Paul Shishkoff lived with his father, his mother, and her two unmarried sisters. Chekhov was a frequent visitor to the house, and his play The Three Sisters is largely based upon what he heard and observed during these visits.
