At foot of sheet: skeleton programmes for the 6th orchestral concert on 29 January 1953, and the 4th chamber concert on 5 February 1953.

Notes: 

The title of the second movement (Adagio, rather than the orginal Andante grazioso) of the Boccherini cello concerto strongly suggests that the players used Friedrich Grützmacher's significantly altered version of the work on this occasion.
