Contemporary Chamber Music—II


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.
Relayed from The Arts Theatre Club
ARTHUR BLISS (born 1891), lately spent three years in California, during which he produced but few pieces. His output is not very great, and practically all his published compositions date from after the war. The Colour Symphony and the Conversations for String and Wind instruments (chamber music) are perhaps his best known works.
This Quintet, published in 1928, is dedicated to the notable American patron of Music, Mrs. Elizabeth Spraguo Coolidge, who inaugurated the Berkshire (Mass) Festivals of chamber music, and has given an annual prize of 1,000 dollars for a composition.
The Quintet is in three Movements. In the First, the engaging theme that opens the ball is much used, in one form or another-changed in pace, mood, and rhythm. Tho Second Movement (At a comfortable, not slow pace) has some bold sweeps of melody and striking figuration, and works up to a powerful emotional climax before its delicate, pastoral-piping end.
The Last Movement starts a lively, jigging tune, that runs an exhilarating course. In the middle the composer introduces a tune called ' Connelly's Jig,' which the bboe gives out whilst the Strings slightly support it.

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.
