The Stradivarius Quartet of New York City will give a concert in Paine Hall tonight at 8.15 o'clock, through the courtesy of Mrs. Edward C. Moore. This organization, which was formed by Alfred Pochon, a member of the Flonzaley Quartet which recently disbanded, includes in addition to Mr. Pochon as second violinist, Nicolas Moldavan, viola, Wolfe Wolfinsohn, first violin, and Gerald Warburg, violoncello.
Each Owns Stradivarius
Four Stradivarius instruments have been placed at the disposal of this organization, hence the name of the Quartet. The concert in Paine Hall will be the Quartet's first eastern appearance followed by a series of 40 to be given mainly in New York during the winter.
Gerald Warburg, the cellist of the Quartet, studied at Harvard at one time, and returns with the organization after an extensive European tour.
