: TURINA

Trio No. 1 played by The Northern Trio: Reginald Stead
(violin) ; Leonard Baker (cello) ;
Albert Hardie (piano)
Joaquin Turina happens to be known in this country by his less personal works-those colourful, thoroughly Spanish pieces. Actually, his chief interest is in chamber music, to which he has devoted more attention than any other Spanish composer of note.
The Piano Trio is the sixth of his large-scale chamber works and is an admirable example of his skill in reconciling the Spanish idiom with the ideals of the modern French school as displayed by Cesar Franck and Vincent d'Indy. It won a prize in a National Competition in 1926 and was played at the Frankfort Inter national Chamber Music Festival the year after.

(Section A)
Leader, Paul Beard
Conductor, Sir Adrian Boult
Tchaikovsky's Sixth, and last, Symphony was conceived in the winter of 1892-3, and the title ' Pathetic ' was given to it after its first performance.
Tchaikovsky himself called this symphony a programme symphony. ' I have got hold of the idea for a new symphony', he wrote. ' This time a programme-symphony, but with a programme that shall remain an enigma for everyone-let them puzzle their heads over it.'
However, the enigma was solved a few years ago. when a paper outlining the plan of the symphony was found in Tchaikovsky's old home. Briefly, the outline is: Active life—love — disappointment — death. By a striking coincidence the symphony was first performed on October 28, only nine days before the composer's death.

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

Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in programmes, online etc.

This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers, images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
