A Pianoforte Recital


We have produced a Style Guide to help editors follow a standard format when editing a listing. If you are unsure how best to edit this programme please take a moment to read it.
AS child, Katharine Goodson played both violin and pianoforte, but concentrated so soon and with such success on the pianoforte that at the age of twelve she played solos in public. A fter some strenuous work at the Royal Academy, she went to Vienna for four years' study with Leschetizky, and, on her return, scored an immediate success at her first appearance in London, at one of the Popular Concerts. A series of recitals and a provincial tour followed, and year by year since then her right to a place in the very front rank of living pianists has been ever more widely recognized. Throughout Europe and America, as well as here, there is no great centre of music-making where her playing is not held in honour, no great orchestra nor conductor with whom she has not joined in concertos. An artist of the widest culture and sympathies, she plays old and new music with a like true insight, bringing her command of all the pianoforte's resources to bear on grave and gay, big and slight, majestic or merry music, with the same whole-hearted zest. She has done much to spread a knowledge of the music of her husband, Arthur Hinton-his Concerto in D Minor particularly. Two of his slighter pieces are included in her programme this evening.

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.
