An Organ Recital by C.H.TREVOR

Synopsis

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.
From The Concert Hall, Broadcasting
House
Though Max Reger 's enormous output ranged over music of a great many different orders, the organ was his first love, and remained an absorbing interest for him all his life. As a boy he was lucky in finding opportunities for organ practice and playing, and seized them so successfully that at quite an early age he was entrusted with the responsibility for many important services. His father, a schoolmaster, was keenly interested in music, and did everything possible to help the boy. Organists were among the first to recognise the value of Roger's music, and from all over the world they have been quick to welcome the fine things he added to the organ repertory. All profoundly sincere, his pieces for the instrument range over many moods, from the most devoutly solemn to music specifically for recital purposes.
Gustav Merkel , famous nineteenth century organist, functioned for the most of his career in Dresden. He wrote a great number of pieces for his instrument, of which the nine sonatas are the most representative of his works and the most important.

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.
