Frederic d'Erlanger is a true cosmopolitan ; he was born in Paris in 1868 of a German father and an American mother, and at about the age of twenty he became a naturalised Englishman. He has written numerous important works, including three operas, a Violin Concerto that was played by Kreisler at a Philharmonic Concert in 1903, and several orchestral works that have been heard at the Proms and other
Queen's Hall concerts. His opera, Tess of the d'Urbervilles, was first performed at Naples in 1906 and at Covent Garden in 1909. Describing d'Erlanger's Piano
Quintet, Edwin Evans says that ' it is a clear and sunny work, combining a certain French flavour in the lyrical themes and their harmonisation, with close adherence to German formal tradition. Individuality is not aggressively shown, but the absence of any suggestion of the portentous leaves an engaging intimacy, which makes it more agreeable to play than many quintets of the same rank but greater pretensions. It is in the usual four movements, of which the andante and scherzo are the most attractive. The suavity of the former is relieved by an episode which verges on the dramatic, and the latter, though formal, is not lacking in vivacious phantasy '.

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.
