Publicity and Reviews: 

On the inside back page - dates (and sketch programmes for the first two) for four further Sunday concerts on 27 January, 3, 10 and 17 February 1924. The piano used in the concert is advertised as a 'Bösendorfer grand pianoforte' (p.6), while the outside back page carries an advertisement for Paterson, sons & co. music shop.


The progamme makes clear that the Schubert string quartet movement is the quartet with only one finished movement, rather than a single movement from a completed work.
