"THE MARRIAGE OF
FIGARO." "
(" Le Nozze di Figaro.")
Act II. of the Opera.
Relayed from the Royal Opera
House, Covent Garden.
The Act begins with the famous
Boudoir Scene. The Countess (Soprano) sings a little cavatina in praise of love. Then she and her maid, Suzanna (Soprano), discuss the Count's attentions to the maid. Cherubino (Soprano,) the Countess's love-sick Page, overhears, and a merry scene follows, at the end of which Cherubino serenades the Countess in one of Mozart's loveliest airs. Suzanna begins to dress the lad in her clothes, so that he may go to meet the amorous Count in her stead.
The Count (Baritone) returns unexpectedly, and there is a stormy scene, in which concealments, escapes and the rest contribute to the general confusion; the Act closes with a great septet in which Figaro (Bass), Basilio (Tenor), and the Music Master, Dr. Bartolo (Bass), and his Housekeeper, Marcellina, join Suzanna and the Count and Countess.

The Virtuoso String Quartet :
MARJORIE HAYWARD
(1st Violin);
EDWIN VIRGO (2nd Violin); RAYMOND JEREMY (Viola);
CEDRIC SHARPE
(Violoncello). Assisted by KATHLEEN LONG
(Pianoforte).
THE QUARTET. Transcribed from the Original Manuscript in the British
Museum, and Edited by Hannah Bryant.
The " Chacony " (probably composed between 1680 and 1683) was revived in 1909 by the London Chamber Concert Association. Although composed for Viols, and restricted in compass, it proved to be well adapted for performance by the modem string quartet.
