Pianoforte Quartet in A, Op. 26
1 Allegro non troppo. Z roco adagio. 3 Scherzo: Poco allegro. 4 Finale: Allegro played by The Wilfrid Parry Pianoforte
Quartet
This is the first broadcast of a new combination of all-star performers.
Anthony Pini , who plays the cello, is principal cellist of the London
Philharmonic Orchestra : Eileen Grainger , viola player, is Wilfrid Parry 's wife, and plays the viola at
Sadler's Wells: also from Sadler's Wells, where he is leader of the orchestra, comes the violinist, Joseph Shadwick. Wilfrid Parry and Joseph Shadwick have given several sonata recitals, and the latter has broadcast many times with his own Quartet.
Wilfrid Parry studied at the Trinity College of Music, where he won the Chappell Gold Medal, and was awarded a Fellowship for solo playing at the age of seventeen. After he had finished his studies he joined the teaching staff of Trinity College, but resigned after a few years to devote all his time to playing. In December 1936 Parry gave the first broadcast performance with the BBC Orchestra of Haydn Wood's Piano Concerto.

by J. E. Dulson
In this broadcast you will hear in dramatic form the story of a young Lancashire boy's experiences during his first day at a big engineering works.

Herbert Hodge
Herbert Hodge , well-known broadcasting taxi-driver, whose new book
'Cab, Sir? ' is being widely read, was associated with Unity in its early days. He was, in fact, one of the pioneers who, working under great difficulties with little money and in appalling conditions, laid the foundation of what has now become a thriving concern.
Hodge is going to talk about the early days of Unity, and to discuss the development of a theatre that has established a reputation for strongly controversial play production.
