A view of the audience of war workers as they listen to the Blech String Quartet with Watson Forbes on viola, as they play a quintet for strings in D Major by Mozart. This lunchtime concert is taking place in the rounded central hall of the National Gallery, the walls now empty of the paintings which once hung there.
