Fantasy Sonata for harp and viola...
Bax I. Allegro molto. 2. Allegro moderato. 3. Lento espressivo. 4. Allegro
Bax's Fantasy Suite for harp and viola was composed in 1927. Consisting of four linked movements, this sonata is undoubtedly a tour de force in the successful and rich blending of two instruments that in themselves are limited in their variety of colour. The whole work is conceived in Bax's most poetic and deeply felt style, and owing to the close relationship of its thematic material, the feeling of the whole work is one of complete unity.

: ' Man is a Social Animal' H. A. Mess, Ph.D.,

Reader in Sociology in the University of London
This is the first talk in the series entitled ' Living Together : The Social Groups to which we belong '. In these talks Dr. H. A. Mess, now Reader in Sociology in the University of London, and previously for many years Director of the Tyneside Council of Social Service, is going to talk about the way in which we are all inevitably affected by the people we have to live with-our families, our playmates and neighbours, our fellow workers, the members of our own class, political party, religious organisation, nation, and so on. We may dislike belonging to any or all of these groups, and do our best to keep clear of them. This is more than difficult, it is impossible. The very effort some of us make to get away from social groupings changes our attitude to life and its circumstances.
These talks have been arranged particularly with the needs of Wireless Discussion Groups in mind. Listeners wishing to know more about Wireless Discussion Groups should write to the Education Officer at the nearest BBC station, and he will provide them with information on how to start a group, and also with a syllabus of this and other series of talks.

: A Pianoforte Recital GÉZA FRID

Geza Frid , of Hungarian nationality, is well known both as composer and pianist. He was born in 1904 and began studying the piano at the early age of five. Later, he entered the Budapest Academy of Music, where he continued his piano studies and also studied composition under Bela Bartok. Mr. Frid's String Quartet was performed in Budapest and London in 1927, and since then he has composed several new works, including a concerto for pianoforte and choir, which was broadcast in 1935, with the composer at the piano. The ' Trois Morceaux ' are among his latest compositions.

THE KUTCHER
STRING QUARTET:
Samuel Kutcher (violin); Frederick Grinke (violin); Raymond Jeremy
Debussy never wrote any symphonies, overtures, concertos, or even sonatas (in the classical sense of the term). The nearest he approached to the conventional sonata design was in the String Quartet in G minor, which was completed and first performed in 1893, when he was in his thirty-second year. It is recorded that Debussy once declared that in this quartet he had said all he had to say in that form.
Debussy was essentially a miniaturist, and one of the most attractive features of his music is its purity and delicacy of texture. His principal concern was the suggesting of vague and subtle emotional moods and the painting of half-lights and exquisite shades of colour. To this end Debussy resorted to the use of a highly original system of harmony based on the two whole tone scales which provide that pungent flavour, or rather ' atmosphere ', so characteristic of his music from the String Quartet onwards. (viola); Douglas Cameron (violoncello)

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.
