of Duets for Two Pianofortes by ETHEL BARTLETT and RAE Robertson
THE name of Clementi is not exactly beloved by young pianists. Ho left a great mass of studies and educational music for the pianoforte with which most young people have to struggle. The most important of these are grouped together in a book called ' Gradus ad Parnassum,' and many toiling aspirants after mastery of the keyboard have found this ascent of Parnassus very steep and difficult. Ho was himself a brilliant pianist, and left a considerable volume of other work too, but the best known incident of his career is the pianoforte playing contest in which he engaged with Mozart. The contest was supposed to have been instigated by the Emperor Joseph II, and it was apparently a drawn battle, each competitor earning the respect of the other.

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.
