Ernest Chausson was a pupil of both Massenet and Cesar Franck. From Massenet he learnt to write with the utmost purity of texture and from Cesar Franck he derived his richness of harmonic colour and deep romantic feeling.
These characteristics are well shown in the Concerto in D for piano, violin, and string quartet. This combination is sometimes called in programmes a sextet, but the designation is not correct, as the piano and violin have definitely more important parts than the string quartet. It was written in 1891 and first heard in Brussels the following year. The work had the advantage of being played by a first-rate pianist and string quartet with Ysaye as solo violin.

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.
