Written and produced by Geoffrey Dearmer
This afternoon the two children, Mark and Prudence, will be introduced by two well-contrasted Biblical characters. In the garden where they habitually meet their friend the Angel, they will learn about Samson and Ruth. The Angel (using the Revised Version of the Old Testament) will introduce them to that ' humorous giant' who for all his violence seldom loses the reader's sympathy and admiration. There will be time to deal with the whole-of Ruth, an exquisite pastoral which sings rather than speaks for itself, and which established for ever one of the noblest characters in literature. The Angel will bring the scenes to life dramatically, and do his best to answer the children's questions.

Livio Mannucci (violoncello)
Brahms's Piano Quintet in F minor is regarded as his most important early work. It was originally conceived as a string quintet, but after it had been thoroughly tested in that form by Joachim and his colleagues, they explained to Brahms that no five string players could hope to achieve the huge effects which the music clearly demanded. Brahms then rewrote it as a sonata for two pianos, in which form it is still often heard. Finally he adapted it for piano quintet.
The South Place Sunday Concerts
It may truly be said that the South Place concerts have done for chamber music what the Proms have done for orchestral music. Throughout the fifty-one seasons that have been given by the South Place society, the finest artists have been engaged, with the result that the audiences have been able to hear chamber music of all periods under the best conditions.
The South Place Sunday Popular
Concerts began giving first-rate chamber concerts in a dingy hall, formerly the headquarters of the South Place Ethical Society, near Finsbury Circus in the City of London, in 1887-a time when chamber music in England was very little known, except for the Monday ' Pops ' held at the old St. James's Hall. The scene has been shifted to Red Lion Square, but the concerts themselves remain true to the tradition set up by the pioneers.
