Recitals for Two Pianofortes


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.
, THE songs and pianoforte pieces of Cyril Scott are as popular as those of almost any English composer one could name, not only in his own country, but abroad, particu
: larly in America and Germany. In this respect; he has, to some extent, taken the place of Grieg, who had, and of course still has, a similar popularity. But the compositions of Scott are not confined to these smaller pieces, for lie has written a number of major works, including operas. Of these, one in particular, The Alchemist, has been performed, -indeed was produced, in Germany. He is also a fine pianist, as one would expect from a composer whose writing is so ; essentially pianistic, though he does not appear too frequently in public as a soloist. It is, therefore, natural that he should show a keen interest in the new vogue, or rather revival, of two-piano recitals, and the programme to which he is contributing tonight should prove, on that account, particularly interesting and instructive.

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.
