(Section B)
Conducted by ALBERT COATES
ON PAGE 592 Mr. Albert Coates discusses the items in this concert, particularly the symphony of Shaporin. Mr. Coates, as is well known, spends much time each year in Russia, where as a conductor, both in the concert room and at the opera, his distinction and public standing are second to none. In other European cities and in America his engagements as guest conductor are frequent; in consequence, when he does come to London, the time he can spend here is regrettably short.
He learnt his conducting abroad, particularly as a second to Nikisch, whose pupil for a time he was. Thereafter, in the opera-houses of Germany and Russia he acquired a very thorough knowledge of the operatic repertory, and when he was thirty-one he came to England and shared with Nikisch the eonductorship of the Wagner operas in that brilliant season of 1913. Since that date, interrupted by the War, he has been one of the most prominent of British conductors both here and abroad.


Leader: Arthur Catterall

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.
