TROISE AND HIS MANDOLIERS

Regional Programme London

When Jack Leonardi was fourteen he played the violin to Huberman, who was so impressed with his capabilities that he wrote to Willy Hess at the Berlin Conservatoire asking him to receive Leonardi as a pupil. He studied for two years, and then, after a series of solo engagements, toured the world as solo violinist with Terpsichore, the French dancer.
Until quite recently he played with Alfredo's Orchestra, and was heard many times in the National programme as its leader.
He first broadcast with his own orchestra in the West of England programmes in July, 1937.
