(First Concert)
Relayed from the GROTRIAN HALL, LONDON
MARIA BAStLlDES (Singer). (First Appearance in England)
THE Pianist-Composcr-Conductor Dohnanyi
-L (born in 1877) began to write music when he was not much over six. He is best known to us as a much-travelled concert, pianist and as the composer of some sprightly and piquant Orchestral Variations.
This Quartet is being performed for the first time, from the manuscript parts. Its three movements contain plenty of variety and liveliness.
The First is. quick, and emotionally somewhat agitated. The Slow Movement is an example of Variation form, of which Dohnanyi is very fond, and in manipulating which he has a particularly happy touch. He sets out a slow air of religious cast, and proceeds to show it in a charming series of varied settings.
The Last Movement, in the gayest spirits, is one of those exuberant jollifications with which the composer seems to delight in winding up his works.


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.
