Dvorak's String Sextet in A was the first of the composer's chamber works to win international success. Subsequently the leader of a well-known quartet, known as the Florentine Quartet, asked Dvorak to write a new work for him in the ' Slavonic style '. The result was the Quartet in E flat, which was written during the year 1879. It has now become known as one of the most characteristic works of the composer and one of his most spritely contributions to chamber music.
The first movement is full of rhythmic vigour and fine tunes; the second main tune is in a merry polka rhythm. The second movement is in the form of a dumka which alternates between moods of sadness and wild gaiety. The third movement is a charming romance, and the fourth and last movement, which is in the form of a Czech dance known as Skocna, is full of brilliance and good spirits.

Bangor, which is prettily situated in County Down, about ten miles from Belfast, has won for itself the title of ' Ulster's Brighton '. As that title implies, Bangor is a popular seaside resort in the summer. It is important historically too. One of the first seats of learning in Ireland, an ecclesiastical colony was founded there in the sixth century, and it still possesses a fine ancient abbey.
As for the programme which is to come from Bangor tonight, the town is rich in local talent of so many kinds that the problem has been not what to put in but what to leave out.
