: HAYDN QUARTETS—

Quartet in F, Op. 74, No. 2 played by The Kutcher String Quartet-Samuel Kutcher (violin) ; Max Salpeter (violin) ; Leonard Rubens (viola) ;
George Roth (cello)
Haydn's last sets of quartets, from Op. 71 onwards, belong to 'the time of his first London visit, when he was engaged in writing the famous ' London ' symphonies. The Quartets Op. 74 were composed in 1793 and dedicated to Count Apponyi. The No. 2, in F, to be played this evening, is the least known of the three. The finale is a good example of the use Haydn made of Slavonic folk-dance rhythm.

: HENRY PURCELL

A programme of his music for voice and strings
Margaret Field-Hyde (soprano)
The Stratton String Quartet:
George Stratton (violin) ; Edwin Virgo (violin) ; Watson Forbes
(viola) ; John Moore (cello)
Three Fantasies for strings, in four parts (ed. Peter Warlock and Andre Mangeot )
Oh solitude, my sweetest choice
(words by Katherine Phillips , ' The Matchless Orinda '. Accompaniment for pianoforte and string quartet by Herbert Murrill )
Sonata in F, for two violins and figured bass (The Golden Sonata)
Two songs: Retir'd from any mortal's sight (Richard II) ; Come, all ye songsters of the sky (The Fairy Queen)
Chacony (for string quartet)
Probably Margaret Field-Hyde has done more singing of early English songs in general and Purcell in particular than any other singer in this, country. Her enthusiasm for Purcell's music existed a good many years" before she decided to become a singer, and this enthusiasm was greatly increased by early successes in revivals of Purcell operas, especially King Arthur in Cambridge twelve years ago.
Recently she gave a recital of Elizabethan and Purcell songs at the National Gallery, and she seldom gives a song recital in which Purcell does not feature prominently.

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.

Welcome to BBC Genome
