SUNDAY SYMPHONY CONCERT

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.
Hans Heinz Schneeberger (violin)
BBC Symphony Orchestra
(Leader, Paul Beard )
Conducted by Sir Adrian Boult
Although he was born in Geneva in 1890, it is only since the war that Frank Martin has established himself as a composer of international standing. Among his most important works are Le Vin Herbe, the oratorio Golgotha, and the delightful Petite Symphonie Concertante,' all of which have been broadca ,t. His Viol n Concerto, written in 1950-51 at the request of the Formation 'Pro Helvetia,' is dedicated to Paul Sacher and the Basle Chamber Orchestra, who played it for the first time, with Hans Heinz Schneeberger as the soIois.t, at Basle.
Schneeberger, who is twenty-six years old, is a compatriot of the composer, and is now paying his first visit to this country. He has played the Concerto a number of times with much success, in Switzerland and elsewhere, though when the work was previously broadcast, from rhe festival of twentieth-century music in Paris last May, the soloist was Szigeti. Wi-rh i-ts soaring phrases and kaleidoscopic texture, the Concerto affords plenty of scope to a sensitive and accomplished violinist.

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.
