Played by WILLIAM PRIMROSE (Violin)
FRITZ KREISLER (bom 1875) is best known to musicians as a fine interpreter of great music. This son of a leading Viennese doctor began studying under Hellmosberger and Auer at the Conservatorium at seven (he was about half the age of any other pupil there). Later, in Paris, ho worked at theory under Delibes, and at twelve carried off one of the Conservatoire's biggest prizes, against competitors of twenty.
Strangely, after a while he left music, studying medicine and art; then he did some army service.
When he came out again as a violinist, he soon began to make the reputation that for nearly thirty years has steadily grown. For some years he lived in America. He put in good service during the war, in which he was early wounded.
His connection with this country has been close and cordial. He holds the gold medal of the Royal Philharmonic Society (1904).
His name is constantly in our programmes, both as a composer (a work which shows a very characteristic and individual quality is his String Quartet in A Minor), and, even more notably, as an arranger of other people's pieces.

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.
