Glyn Eastman's Avalon Quartet was formed at the invitation of the West of England Music Director, Reginald Redman , who wanted a London quartet with West Country connections.
Eastman himself, like two other members of the Quartet, Marjorie Avis and Gladys Jones , hails from Bristol. His father was an excellent pianist, and both his brothers accomplished amateur musicians. Eastman himself trained under a well-known Bristol music teacher at the end of the war, in which he served for the full four years. He was a prisoner for ten months in Berlin and, on a recent visit to that city, visited the scene of his imprisonment.
Glyn Eastman has been associated with broadcasting since 1923 and has been on the air nearly five hundred times.
Of the other members of the Quartet, Tom Purvis is an old hand at broadcasting, having been originally with the Wireless Singers, and Marjorie Avis has broadcast a great deal, chiefly in ensembles. Gladys Jones , the contralto, who is the youngest member of the combination, has gained her experience chiefly through solo work.

Feruccio Bonavia , who since 1920 has been a distinguished music critic on the staff of the Daily Telegraph, studied music in Milan. For ten years he was a violinist in the Halle Orchestra under Richter and during that time he also contributed articles on music to the Manchester Guardian. Among his compositions are several pieces for the violin, a string quartet, a string octet, and music for the Manchester University performance of Aeschylus's Choephori.
The Piano Trio to be heard this afternoon was written about three years ago. Although fairly difficult to play from a technical point of view, it is very simple in structure and essentially melodic in style. The composer has said that he ' still believes in a good tune ', and this work is intended more for pure entertainment than for serious study.
