DEZSO KORDY (Violoncello)


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.
FROM childhood upwards Chopin loved the tunes that he heard sung and played around his Polish home, and perhaps even more he loved the folk-dances. More thai* a quarter of his compositions bear titles which indicate their origin in dance rhythms and dance forms. The Mazurka and the Polonaise are the two types of composition in which Chopin most clearly shows his affection for the native dances of his country. As he treats the former dance, it shows us the folk-spirit sublimated, idealized. The peasant has come to town. He retains all the vigorous directness of his- origin, but combines with it a high degree of refinement, and sometimes a tinge of unexpected emotion, as in the somewhat melancholy opening of this A minor Mazurka. In the Polonaises we have the grandeur and love of ceremony of the old Polish ruling class. This Polonaise, in A flat, is by common consent classed among the most inspired and inspiriting music Chopin ever wrote.

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.
