1 LESLEY DUDLEY (Soprano)
THE MARIE WILSON STRING QUARTET :
MARIE WILSON (1st Violin), GWENDOLEN HIGHAM (2nd Violin), ANNE WOLFE (Viola),
PHYLLIS HASLUCK (Violoncello)
HERE is a work full of tunes and richness, cheerful and simple to grasp. In the Slow Movement we find clean emotion and attractive efflorescence of delicate ornamentation. The Third and final Movement (a Rondo) prances and swings along in great feather. Note the curious glassy sounds produced when (after the music has gone into six-eight time-two beats to the bar, each beat divided into three), the strings play very close to the bridge—' sul ponticallo,' as it is called. The Quartet is dedicated to Elgar.

: THE FOUNDATIONS OF MUSIC BACH'S MISCELLANEOUS KEYBOARD WORKS Played by EDWARD ISAACS Italian Concerto

fTIHE Italian Concerto is an attempt to apply to one instrument the principles of alternation and of contrast that were observed in writing music for an instrument (or group of instruments) used with some form of Orchestra. It is a Concerto, but a one-man Concerto, the only piece so named that Bach ever wrote for one performer
The instrument for which it was intended was the double-keyboard Harpsichord, in which contrasts of tono unavailable in the single- keyboard form could be taken into account by the Composer. Bach's use of the one keyboard or the other is indicated by the words ' forto ' and ' piano,' and sometimes one direction is applied to the righthand part and the other to the left, so presenting an effect which would have been impossible upon a single-keybcard Harpsichord, and the possibility of which upon th9 Harpsichord's successor, the Pianoforte, gives point to the name it has received.
The title refers to the fact that the Italians established the Concerto form as a chain of Movements (usually, as here, three-two quick ones, with a slow one in the middle).

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.
