A Pianoforte 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.
by ERNST VON DOHNANYI Ernst von Dohnanyi, who was born at
Pressburg in 1877, is one of Hungary's foremost musicians, and has won high distinction as a composer, pianist, and conductor. He studied at the Royal Hungarian Academy of Music, Budapest, and later under Eugen d'Albert; in 1908 he became professor of the piano at the Berlin Hochschule, and io 1919 director of the Budapest Conservatoire. Since 1897, when Dohnanyi made his debut in Berlin, he has become world famous as a pianist. He appeared in England for the first time in the following year, when he played Beet- hoven's Piano Concerto No. in G under Richter, at Queen's Hall. Not only', ', says J. B. Trend , ' is his technical accomplishment extraordinarily complete, but the breadth of his phrasing. his command of tone-gradation, and the exquisite beauty of his tone, are such as to satisfy the most exacting lover of classical and modern music, and in both an intensely poetical nature is revealed '.

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.
