EVELYN ARDEN (Mezzo-Soprano)
THE CHARLES WOODHOUSE STRING QUARTET:
CHARLES WOODHOUSE ; WALTER PRICE;
ERNST YONGE ; CHARLES CRABBE ERNEST JOHN MOERAN began to compose already during his schooldays at Uppingham, where music has always been enthusiastically cultivated. Like many others of the younger generation of English composers, his original work goes hand in hand with an enthusiasm for native folk music. THIS is one of the lamous early set of Quartets, six in number, in which the youthful Beethoven gave at the ago of thirty such emphatic and unmistakable assurance to the musical world of his intention to surpass all that had previously been accomplished in works of this class. For though they are all, naturally, in the style of his first period, reflecting the influence of his models, Haydn and Mozart, it is possible to point in each one to passages, not to say whole movements, which neither of those great masters could conceivably have written, and which proclaim the opening of a new chapter in the history of the String Quartet.
