Clifford Curzon was born in 1907 and studied at the Royal Academy of Music, where he won the Potter Exhibition and the Thalberg Scholarship. He then went to Berlin and studied under Artur Schnabel. For a time he was a professor at the Royal Academy of Music, but he has now given up teaching to devote himself entirely to solo work.
The Brahms Variations with which he will open his broadcast this afternoon were finished on June 15, 1854, having been written during the time of Frau Schumann 's convalescence after the birth of her seventh child. The Theme was taken from Schumann's ' Bunte Blatter Op. 99, No. 4.

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.
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.
