Philip Thornton

This is the first of six fortnightly talks to be given by Philip Thornton. They will consist of a description of the instruments that go to make up a modern orchestra and they will trace their history from primitive times. It is hoped that these illustrated talks will encourage an interest in orchestral music and will help the viewer to pick out the various instruments of the orchestra. In this, the first talk, Philip Thornton will deal with the stringed components, giving examples of original stringed instruments.
