: THE FOUNDATIONS OF MUSIC

BRAHMS' PIANO WORKS
Played by HOWARD JONES
Intermezzo in A Flat, Op. 76, No. 3
Rhapsody in B Minor, Op. 79, No. I
FOR about thirteen years, from 1866 to 1879,
Brahms gave up pianoforte composition, devoting himself to chamber and vocal music, and bringing out the first of his four great symphonies.
This Intermezzo is one of the first set of pieces
(Op. 76) in which, after this long interval,- he resumed composing for tho pianoforte. It is a gracious trifle of but thirty bars, with a hint of harp chords in the left hand and an expressively swaying, syncopated right-hand part. This charming and uncommon effect soon gives way to a few bars in which Brahms uses his favourite cross-rhythmic device of two notes to a beat in one part and three to a boat in another.
Among Brahms' most vigorous and distinctive piano solos are his Rhapsodies. The B Minor Rhapsody is the first of two such pieces which constitute his Opus 79. This piece is in three sections, the first of which itself has much varied material. The opening is very busy and agitated. After a while there comes a very quiet, simple tune in the Treble ; then greater energy than ever; and so on for some time.
The Second (middle) Section consists of a very smooth, sustained melody marked ' Very sweet and expressive.'
The Final Section is, on the whole, a rccapitulation of the First Section.

: Dame KATHERINE FURSE : 'The Adventure of Life'

THIS talk resumes the series, which began in April, designed to appeal particularly to listeners between the ages of, say, fifteen and eighteen. Dame Katherine Furse , who gives it, has been Assistant Chief Commissioner of Girl Guides since 1922 ; she was Director of the Women's Royal Naval Service from 1917 to 1919, and in the earlier days of the war she was a pioneer organizer of the V.A.D.

: 'The Sweepstake'

A Play in One Act
Specially written for Derby Day by ARTHUR APPLIN
Characters itt order of speaking :
Newsboys
This graphic little play may leave listeners who drew blanks with the consoling reflection that after all it is they who are lucky.
The dream horse which is one day to bring us a fortune may be in reality a nightmare.

: Travellers' Tales: Lady LAWRENCE : ' Across the Sind Desert'

IN this talk Lady Lawrence will describe a journey across the great wilderness that covers the interior of Sind. Her husband, Sir Henry Lawrence , was at that time Governor of Bombay, but both her and his associations with India go back into history, as he is a great-nephew of Henry Lawrence of Lueknow, and she herself is a descendant of Sir Charles Napier , the conqueror, of Sind.

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.
