The six members of this original Variety act play saxophones of varied size and pitch. The combination was formed in Sydney, Australia, about ten years ago, its members being drawn from dance bands and theatre orchestras. All the players are well known on the air in Australia and New Zealand, and in this country listeners have heard them on several occasions.
by The Hirsch String Quartet:
Leonard Hirsch (first violin)
Sydney Errington (viola)
Leonard Baker (violoncello)
This is the fifth of a series of recitals of light chamber music specially chosen for its melodies and designed to appeal to those who find chamber music difficult to appreciate.
There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a
historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any
given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the
understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time
- not those of today.
Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and
is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to
obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in
programmes, online etc.
This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers,
images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio
Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available
externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
