'Companionable Books-
Boswell's Life of Johnson '
TAMES BOSWELL, the son of a Scottish judge, came to London as a law student in 1763, and was introduced to Dr. Johnson, the Great Lexicographer, essayist, poet, scholar, and wit, and the Great Cham of letters of his time. Thenceforward Boswell attached himself assiduously to the great man, and, undeterred by his natural rudeness and his intense dislike for everything Scottish, succeeded ultimately in installing himself as the fidus Achates. The result was his
' Life of Johnson,' the most famous biography in the language, and the book that, more than his own works, is responsible for Johnson's fame to-day. Many critics, in fact, contend that, under the disguise of an industrious and unassuming compiler, Boswell was in reality a literary genius who drew his Johnson far more than life-size, and made of him a character far richer and more commanding than the original. Be that as it may, Boswell's ' Johnson ' remains one of the most fascinating books ever written, and without doubt one that cannot be omitted from any list of ' companionable books.'.

: SCHUBERT

Interpreted by EDGAR BANTON
Sonata in E Flat Major (concluded) : Andante
Molto ; Menuetto ; Allegretto ; Allegro Mod erato rPHE First Movement of this Sonata was heard yesterday. The Second Movement, now to be heard, is essentially simple, beautiful material beautifully treated.
The MINUET and Trio are pleasant, easy-going stuff. The language is the language of Haydn, but the voice is the voice of Schubert.
The FINALE (moderately quick) is in the form which, though best called First-Movement form, is not infrequently used for other Movements of works of the Sonata type. There is a merry First Main Tune, a slightly more serious, responsible Second Main Tune, which arrives in an unexpected key, and a self-confident Third Main Tune in the Tenor. The most delightful thing about this Movement is the casual way in which what should be the second (or ' Development ') section, gets carried away with all sorts of new material, yet without seeming disconnected. Anyhow, ' all's well that ends well,' and here the chief material is all eventually recapitulated ' according to plan.'

: CHAMBER MUSIC

SERGE KRISH (Pianoforte)
WILLIAM PRIMROSE (Violin) MANUCCI* (Violoncello)
Movements from Trio in C Minor, Op. 101 Brahms Allegro Energico ; Presto Non Assai
HERE is a bracing piece of music, if ever there was one! It has the tonic effect of a tramp in the fresh, keen air of spring.
The vigorous FIRST MOVEMENT is built upon two Main Tunes, the first of which, crisp and brief, is heard right away at the opening. After some episodical matter, the Violin and 'Cello give out, in octaves, the broad Second Main Tune.
The SECOND MOVEMENT is in ' Scherzo ' style-light, quick and lithe.

: Trio in D Minor .Arensky

(By Special Request)
MOST of the last-century Russian Composers were ardent ''Nationalists,' but Arensky is an exception. His is largely cosmopolitan music, tuneful, graceful, and easily enjoyed at the first hearing.
His Trio in D Minor contains four Movements, of which the FIRST is lively, graceful, and occasionally forceful, working up to some strong climaxes.
The SECOND is a v i vaciou Scherzo, at full speed, that has a middle section in quieter mood.
The THIRD is a slow Movement, entitled Elegy.
The FINALE surpasses in energy the First Movement. In the middle of it there is a lull, and, in slower time, we have a reminiscence of the melody heard at the opening of the work. Then the brilliant stylo is resumed, and the piece flashes on to its conelusion with arpeggios, from the Piano and chords from the Strings.








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.
