Anthony COLLINS (viola)
JOHN COCKERILL (harp)
Both Anthony Collins and John Cockerill, who are playing Bax's very beautiful Sonata for viola and harp, play for the Lyra Quartet and are leading members of the London Symphony Orchestra. Mr. Collins, principal viola, comes from Hastings. He studied the violin under his father ; at the age of eleven played in the local theatre to gain orchestral experience ; changed over to the viola, and played in the Municipal Orchestras of Bournemouth, Eastbourne, and Hastings. During the War Mr. Collins was in Salonika with Gustav Hoist, under whom he afterwards studied composition at the Royal College of Music.
John Cockerill belongs to a well-known musical family in Manchester. He began his career as a harpist in the Halle Orchestra under Richter and then gained an open scholarship at the Royal College of Music. Since that time Mr. Cockerill has been principal harpist at one time or another of practically all the chief London orchestras. He has also conducted opera and musical plays.
