Was it founded in 1947 or 1948? I've seen two slightly different opinions here.

Still trying to find the name of the 2nd violin. -- David Martland 21:02 26 May 2003 (UTC)

I think I've sorted out the members now, but the date is still slightly uncertain. -- David Martland 21:10 26 May 2003 (UTC)

Grove Concise says they were founded in 1947 and the Penguin Dictionary says they made their debut in 1948 - I suspect that's where the confusion arises. --Camembert
