Pianoforte Quartet in A, Op. 26
1 Allegro non troppo. Z roco adagio. 3 Scherzo: Poco allegro. 4 Finale: Allegro played by The Wilfrid Parry Pianoforte
This is the first broadcast of a new combination of all-star performers.
Anthony Pini , who plays the cello, is principal cellist of the London
Philharmonic Orchestra : Eileen Grainger , viola player, is Wilfrid Parry 's wife, and plays the viola at
Sadler's Wells: also from Sadler's Wells, where he is leader of the orchestra, comes the violinist, Joseph Shadwick. Wilfrid Parry and Joseph Shadwick have given several sonata recitals, and the latter has broadcast many times with his own Quartet.
Wilfrid Parry studied at the Trinity College of Music, where he won the Chappell Gold Medal, and was awarded a Fellowship for solo playing at the age of seventeen. After he had finished his studies he joined the teaching staff of Trinity College, but resigned after a few years to devote all his time to playing. In December 1936 Parry gave the first broadcast performance with the BBC Orchestra of Haydn Wood's Piano Concerto.

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.
