CEDRIC SHARPE (Violoncello)
EDWARD ISAACS (Pianoforte)
Edward Isaacs has been broadcasting for ten years. He was one of the first artists to do so from Trafford Park in 1922, and since that day he has been heard by listeners on numberless occasions, particularly in the Foundations of Music series. Mr. Isaacs' repertory is so extensive that it is difficult to say in what he excels, but in Mozart listeners have had proof not only that he is completely at home, but that his Mozart playing is impeccable. He is a Manchester musician, and music in Manchester has owed a great deal to him; at the same time, his studies abroad brought him into touch with a number of distinguished musicians, Busoni, Godowsky, Nikisch, Backhaus, Joachim, Cortot, and others, with many of whom he formed close friendships. About a year ago long-threatened blindness completely overtook him, but it would seem that so tragic a handicap has affected his pianoforte playing only by adding strength and beauty to his interpretations.
John Herbert Foulds is a Manchester man, and was at one time a member of the Hallé orchestra. In London he has had a good deal of experience as conductor, and as an organizer of concerts. He has written a great deal, and sometimes on an impressive scale, but to a wide public ho is known very well as a composer of smaller pieces of great charm. The Celtic Lament with its beautiful but poignant Irish melody is one of three pieces forming a suite known as The Celtic Rhapsody ; but this Lament, and the Rhapsody are very often broadcast a? listeners will have observed.
