: THE FOUNDATIONS OF MUSIC

GRIEG'S PIANO MUSIC
Played by JOHANNE STOCKMARR

: A Coleridge-Taylor Programme

ONE day, the conductor of a Croydon theatre orchestra, looking out of his window, saw a little curly-haired, black-faced boy holding a small-sized violin in one hand and playing marbles with the other. He called him in, put some music before him, and was delighted to find that he could play it in perfect time and tune.
From that moment the child, whose name was
Samuel Coleridge-Taylor , was ear-marked for music. While he was still at school he led the class-singing with his violin, and began to appear in public.
Some few years later he was enrolled, by a local benefactor, as a student of the Royal College of Music.
While still a student at the College, the youth produced the first part of his now famous Hiawatha—a work which exhibited both racial and individual qualities, and attracted immediate admiration.
It was in the hall of the Royal College of Music that it had its first performance. Stanford eonducted, and Sullivan was present. The evening was a triumph, and heralded his brilliant career. That was in 1898, when Coleridge-Taylor was twenty-three. He lived only fourteen years more, dying, like Purcell, at the age of thirty-seven.
A book about the composer is Sayers's Samuel
Coleridge-Taylor: His Life and Letters.'

About this project

This site contains the BBC listings information which the BBC printed in Radio Times between 1923 and 2009. You can search the site for BBC programmes, people, dates and Radio Times editions.

We hope it helps you find information about that long forgotten BBC programme, research a particular person or browse your own involvement with the BBC.

Through the listings, you will also be able to use the Genome search function to find thousands of radio and TV programmes that are already available to view or listen to on the BBC website.

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time - not those of today.
