THE PIANIST AS COMPOSER

Synopsis

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.
Chopin—Schumann—d'Albert
The pianist appears to be the only musician who has excelled as a composer. There have been many violinist composers, for instance, but with only one or two possible exceptions they have not been of the front rank. In the case of the piano, however, their number is legion.
There is no need to go back further than Mozart. In the nineteenth century there came Chopin, Schumann who, had he not injured his hand through using a mechanical device, would have been one of the foremost virtuosos, Liszt, Brahms, and so on. Less well known, perhaps. was Eugene d'Albert, the third virtuoso to be represented in this programme, who died in 1932.

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.
