1937 - ADELAIDE FLAUTISTS ARE IN RELAY - Quartet's Third Recital

An architect, a chartered accountant, a solicitor, and a salesman make up the Adelaide Flute Quartet which will be heard from 5AN and 5CK in Random Pages on Sunday at 6 p.m. This will be the third time that the quartet, as a quartet, has been heard over the air in recitals, and the second time that their recital has been relayed to national stations in other States. Messrs. Keith Yelland, K.L. Carroll, L. von Bertouch, and A.V. Noske formed the quartet about two years ago and practised for 18 months before they gave their first recital in public. Flute quartets are uncommon, and music for them is not easy to obtain, but the Adelaide men have been very fortunate in this respect.
