Jeno Lener (violin); Joseph Smilovits (violin); Sandor Roth (viola) ;
Imre Hartman (violoncello) The four artists who form this Quartet arc almost the same age-two were born in 1894 and two in 1895-and all were
-distinguished pupils of the same school
-the Budapest Academy All except the 'cellist were pupils of one master, Hubay, and he was a pupil and close1 friend of Joachim. The 'cellist Was a pupil of that great artist David Popper. When revolution broke out in Hungary in 1918, all four were leading members of the Budapest Opera Orchestra ; they went into retirement, and devoted themselves for two years to uninterrupted quartet practice, with a success which was immediately acclaimed on their first appearance as an ensemble. To the musical world of Vienna, and soon afterwards in Paris, their playing was something of a revelation, and even now, when the whole world knows them, it is a source of amazement that four artists can play as though only one conception of the music guided their thoughts and hands.

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.
