: ' TONADILLAS

Recital of eighteenth-century Spanish music. Sophie Wyss (soprano), accompanied by Roberto Gerhard
Sophie Wyss , who was born in Switzerland, studied at the Conservatoire de Geneve. In her ten years of broadcasting she can claim to have brought to the microphone more new works than any other singer. She was the first to bring to the listening public many of the songs of such composers as Honegger, Milhaud, and Tailleferre. She* sings in six languages with perfect understanding and has an almost unlimited repertoire.
The Catalonian composer, Roberto Ger hard, was born in 1896 at Vails, in the province of Tarragona. From 1916-21 he studied under Felipe Pedrell , the founder of modern Spanish music, and later became a pupil of Schonberg. Roberto Gerhard has written a number of interesting works, including the Trio in A flat, the Violin Sonata, and the ballet Ariel, founded on Shakespeare's The Tempest, which was first performed at the Festival of the International Society for. Contemporary Music at Barcelona in 1936.

: RAVEL

String Quartet in F played by the Hirsch Quartet
Ravel's Quartet in F is full of beautiful music imbued with a delicate strain of romantic feeling, and the first movement, particularly, is a model of conciseness and balance. A feeling of continuity is given to the whole work by thematic resemblances and quotations : the second theme of the quite original scherzo with its intriguing pizzicato effects is an offspring of the second theme of the first movement ; in the slow movement there is an echo of the first subject of the first movement ; and in the finale the second theme consists of two strains, one based on the first theme of the first subject and the other on the second theme. a

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, and programmes to purchase from BBC Store and other providers.

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
