DVORAK'S music took some time to make its way. beyond the bounds of his own country, but by the beginning of the last decade of the nineteenth century, when he had reached his fiftieth year, several of his more important works had been enthusiastically welcomed in America. In 1892 the National Conservatory of Music in New York invited him to become its Director, and, with the permission of the Prague Conservatoire, to which he was already bound, he went to the States and was given a splendid reception alike as teacher and conductor of his own music. But the noise and bustle of such a city depressed him, and after three years of growing homo sickness, he resigned his post and returned to the simplicity of his own country, taking up his old post as Professor in Prague.
This pianoforte quartet belongs to the period just before the American visit, so that it has never been claimed, like several of the works written in New York or after his return, as belong. ing to America and inspired by the native tunes. This is the genuine Bohemian Dvorak as we know him in the Slavonic dances.

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.
