Johann Joachim Quantz was born in 1697 The son of a village farrier, he learnt, when quite young, to play the double-bass and later took up the oboe and violin. In his early twenties, however, he studied the flute, on which instrument he eventually became one of the greatest virtuosos of his day. While on his travels he met the Crown Prince Frederick at Berlin in 1728 and gave him some lessons on the flute. When
Frederick became king he gave Quantz the post of master of his music and court composer.
Among numerous compositions
Quantz composed three hundred flute concertos, which are now preserved in the palace at Potsdam.

W. H. Reed , who for many years was principal of the London Symphony Orchestra and still leads that orchestra on occasions, notably at the Three Choirs Festival, brings to a conclusion this series of three talks concerned with his experiences under famous conductors.
Mr. Reed can lay claim to an outstanding record, for he has played under, and known intimately, such composer-conductors and conductors as Dvorak, Randegger, Mancinelli, Lamoureux, Richter, Nikisch, Safonov, Elgar, Ysaye, Colonne, Faure, Saint-Saens, Strauss, Sullivan, and Steinbach, and most of the great masters of the baton who are flourishing today.

A play by J. M. Barrie
Characters in order of speaking
Produced by Andrew Stewart
The Will is not one of the better-known Barrie plays. Since the original production at the Duke of York's in September, 1913, it has been revived only once - at the St. Martin's Theatre in 1923. This neglect is not due to any inferiority in the play itself but to its slightly cynical flavour, rare in Barrie.
The play shows the effect of prosperity on a young couple, as reflected in the man's plans for making his will.
