JAMES LOCKHART (b. 1930) is a Scottish conductor, organist, and pianist. Early in his career he served as choir master and organist at St. Giles Cathedral in Edinburgh. In the mid-1950s he became an apprentice conductor with the Yorkshire Symphony Orchestra. During the rest of the decade he conducted in German opera houses,such as the Münster Opera, the Bavarian State Opera, and the Munich Opera. From 1962 to 1972 Lockhart was professor of conducting at the Royal College of Music, and from 1986 to 1993, he was the college's director of opera. He has recorded with the Sadler's Wells Orchestra on HMV, the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra on their own label, and the English Chamber Orchestra on EMI. ELEANOR WARREN (1919-2005) was a British cellist. Warren began learning at the London Cello School at the age of 5. In 1934 she was awarded the school's premier prize. She was then featured in a pair of concerts at the Wigmore Hall which brought her more acclaim. Eventually Warren became a member of the Ebsworth Quartet and played with them until 1950. When a back injury forced her to abandon playing altogether in 1964, she joined the BBC, and was appointed Head of Radio Music Programs in 1975. After leaving the BBC she taught at the Royal Northern College of Music as Head of Strings. RUDOLF KOLISCH (1896-1978) was a violinist from Austria. Due to a childhood injury which resulted in the loss of part of his left middle finger, Kolisch learned to play the violin in an opposite way of tradition. Following service in World War I, Kolisch attended the Musikakademie, where he studied conducting with Franz Schalk, intending at first to make a career as a conductor. In 1919 he began studying composition with Arnold Schoenberg. This led to the creation of a string quartet, "Wiener Streichquartett", to perform both Schoenberg's music and the classical string quartet repertoire. By 1927 the ensemble had become known as the Kolisch Quartet. In 1944 Kolisch was invited to the University of Wisconsin-Madison to become the new leader of the Pro Arte String Quartet. He stayed at his position in Madison until reaching the mandatory retirement age in 1966. Corners rounded. Left edge frayed and creased.
