The next in the series of Alfred Schulz-Curtius's Concert Club events brought together some prominent European chamber players for their first appearances at Wigmore Hall, alongside the young mezzo-soprano Yvonne de St. André.

Violet Gordon Woodhouse was born in 1872 in London. Although she became known internationally for her performances on the harpsichord and clavichord, she began her career as a pianist, having studied under Oscar Beringer. In this concert she joined the Spanish string players and composers Enrique Fernández Arbós and Agustín Rubio in a performance of Arbós's Seguidillas gitanas, while the composer gave the première of his own Tango for violin.
