They played two Quar tets, the Haydn in' O from Opus 76 and Smetana's "Ass Meinem Leben"and, between . the . two were sandwiched Arensky's beau tiful variations on the Tschaikow sky carol "Christ When a Child "This is a auartet with high possibilities of achievement. Susie Pipes is mercurial and has an in gradaUng suavity of tone;- the second' violin, Alexander .Murray, has " technique , and . masculinity; the viola player, Hubert Sorenson, disengages a lovely-tone and -has a real flair for the genius of his Instrument; Michel Penha.' as ev eryone knows, is a master of the cello. ;. : . .-t . l:;' -f They play with distinction; they put theii heart Into the work, They will go far.

It originally had appllcav tion to any small group of Instru ments, strings or - other- instm- ments, heard in homes and play ing delicate, individually beauti ful, music From this Idea of chamber musie the present con caption of strings, .mostly quartets- or trios,' has grown. -' r. : Among the .most famous . mu sical organisations -in ' the world was the Flonzaley quartet, which has only- recently disbanded. A group- of Hungarian quarets which are well known, in . the : United States are Roths, the Lener quar tet. Which is most often heard in quartet recordings,- and the Buda pest quartet. -' , & i r Pro-Arts and the London String quartets have both been heard in Portland. The New York quartet is another well known group, as is the Gordan quartet of New York. ': Quaret music has proved to be! especially fine for radio recording.. One of the most beautiful record-, lngs either. for the radio or pho nograph records has proved to be the "Double Concerto," written by Brahms. This has grown to be a. special favorite of radio audiecces. The program which will be played by the Neah-Kah-Nie quar tet Tuesday night promises to be as delightfully pleasing as the two which have been given. r A number of special guests will be present : for this program, among them it is anticipated will be Governor and Mrs. Julius Meier.
