Chamber Music


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.
Of the three English composers whose works are being performed in to-night's programme Frank Bridge is the best known. He has written a good deal of chamber music, and it is safe to say that his compositions in this form are as popular as any British chamber music works written during this century. Bernard van Dieren is a composer not as yet very widely known to the public, although in musical circles his work is held in high esteem. Van Dieren is of French parentage, although for the last twenty years he has made his home in England. He was born in 1884, began his career as a scientist, and did not take up music seriously until he was about twenty; thus most of his compositions, nearly all of which are chamber music, have been composed in England. These songs were first introduced at a concert devoted to van Dieren's works at Wigmore Hall in 1925, by Megan Foster , who has made them her own and is singing them again to-night. Of these Bulow is a setting of some anonymous 16th century verses, the words of which are somewhat archaic and may be a little difficult to follow. Alan Bush is the youngest of the three; he was born in 1900. He was a pupil at the Royal Academy of Music, and later with John Ireland. He also studied in Germany with Artur Schnabel. Most of his compositions are in chamber music form, although he has written for full orchestra.

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.
