Relayed from The Queen's Hall, London

CORTOT
THE B.B.C. SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA
(Leader, ARTHUR CATTERALL )
Conductor, ADRIAN BOULT
One of the chief events of this concert is the appearance of the distinguished French pianist, Alfred Cortot , in Schumann's Pianoforte Concerto in A minor. Actually, Cortot was born in Switzerland, and according to International law he would be considered a Swiss subject, but as both his parents were French, and Paris has been his home since a child of three, one can hardly call him anything else but French. At an early age Cortot entered the National Conservatoire of Music and studied the piano under Descombes, who, it is interesting to note, was one of Chopin's last pupils. In 1896 Cortot carried off with great distinction a first prize at the Conservatoire which prepared the way for his debut at the Colonne and Lamoureux Concerts, and it was not many years before he secured an international reputation as a concert pianist.
Despite these : activities, Cortot found time to interest himself in conducting, and in 1902 he was appointed assistant conductor at
Bayreuth, where he became intimate with Felix Mottl and Hans Riehter. At the Nouveau Theatre Cortot produced for the first time in Paris Wagner's Tristan and Isolda, The Twilight of the Gods, and Parsival, Beethoven's Mass in D, Brahms's Requiem, and a number of other important works. In 1905 Cortot founded the now world-famous trio with Casals and Thibaud.
It was not until the year of the War that he came to England and played before an English audience at a Queen's Hall Symphony Concert. Since that time he has been a regular and much-sought-after visitor. One cannot but feel the highest admiration for the way in which Cortot has worked for the good of his art and fellow artists.

: A YEAR OF RHYTHM

A First Anniversary Programme by THE B.B.C. DANCE ORCHESTRA
Directed by HENRY HALL
Exactly a year ago the new B.B.C. Dance
Orchestra, directed by Henry Hall , broadcast for the first time. The band then was completely new, with only three weeks' rehearsal behind it. In tonight's first anniversary programme the director and his fourteen players celebrate with a programme of current favourites played in the style they have achieved after broadcasting 8,000 tunes in 500 hours after 1,200 hours' rehearsal. Nearly half these tunes have been British. The tunes they play and the way they play them have grown steadily in popular favour, and after a year's hard' work the band is the most popular now broadcasting.

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.

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.
