On this day: 28 January 1922

On this day in 1922 Ireland’s music featured alongside that of his friend Thomas Dunhill in a concert at Quaker’s Hall, Sevenoaks. The main part of the programme featured the Pennington Quartet (John Pennington, Kenneth Skeaping, Bernard Shore and Edward Robinson) along with Dunhill playing his own Phantasy Trio, & the Schumann Quintet (‘a very vigorous, ‘goey’ performance’). This string quartet worked closely with a number of composers at this time, including Walton. There was also other chamber music, and some songs by Dunhill, Parry and Ireland sung by a Mr Gerrod. Tea and supper followed  at Quaker’s Hall.
