A Recital for Two Pianofortes ETHEL BARTLETT and RAE ROBERTSON


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.
Ethel Bartlett and Rae Robertson were fellow students at the Royal Academy of Music, and their first efforts in playing music for two pianos which date from that time were not taken seriously. Indeed, they had been married for some years before they decided to give a concert of two-piano music. Even then, successful as the-concert was, they did not immediately realise that there was not only a potential and genuine appreciation for such performances, but also a considerable existing repertory of music written for a two-piano combination, without counting examples later to be written expressly for them by modern composers. Since then they have together toured England, Holland, France, Poland, Germany, Belgium, and America, and their reputation is such that the mere mention of two-piano music is inevitably associated in the mind with these Uvo fine artists.


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.
