A Sonata Recital


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.
Anthony Pini (violoncello)
Olive Bloom (pianoforte)
There were two Marcellos in Venice at the end of the seventeenth and in the first half of the eighteenth centuries, and though both were outstanding figures of their time, it is the younger, Benedetto, who is best remembered now. There is a monument to him in the Church of San Giuseppe of Brescia, and the inscription calls him statesman, musician, and poet. But he was a good many other things besides. Music was his diversion, not his calling, but he was so eminent a violinist and composer as to leave his mark for all time on the course it was to take. His own music for the church and the concert room entitle him to a place of honour among the lesser classical composers.
Sonata in F sharp minor (in one movement)
Hure Jean Hure was born in 1877, began his career as a concert pianist, and later founded the Paris Ecole Normale de Musique. Among Hure's chamber music there are three sonatas for cello and piano. The first in F sharp minor is cast in four linked movements, which are preceded by a prelude and followed by Postlude.

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.
