The Scottish Orchestra
Leader, Henri Temianka
Conductor. Georg Szell from the St. Andrew's Hall, Glasgow (Soloist, RIA GINSTER> )(Trumpet obbligato, JAMES ELLIS )
Georg Szell, the conductor of the orchestra to be heard this evening, was born in Budapest forty years ago. At the age of seven he began the study of the piano, and he made his first outstanding success four years later when he gave a series of recitals. Soon he was touring the leading cities of Europe as a soloist. At the age of sixteen he made up his mind to become a conductor, and his chance came unexpectedly in 1913 when, through the illness of the regular conductor, he was called upon at short notice to direct the Vienna Symphony Orchestra, then fulfilling a summer engagement at Bad Kissinghen. Two years later Richard Strauss took him to Berlin as his assistant. This was the first of many important engagements.

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.
