EARLY ITALIAN VIOLONCELLO MUSIC
Played by JULIETTE Alvin
THE name of this composer which is merely a form of St. Martin, is very common in Italy, and no one can say how many Sammartinis there have been in the world of music throughout the ages. But there were two who established a real contact with this country, and one of them, Giuseppe, lived here for many years, playing and composing. For a time he held the post of Director of Chamber Music in the household of the Prince of Wales, and was evidently a welcome figure alike in Society and in musical circles. We call him Sammartini of London to distinguish him from his brother.
Giovanni, some seven years younger than the London one, is called Sammartini of Milan. Although he himself, so far as we know, was never in London, many of his Sonatas were published here by the old London firm of Simpson. Our Dr. Burney speaks of Sammartini's producing an ' incredible number of spirited and agreeable compositions,' adding that in 1770 he was master of the music ' of more than half the churches in the city, for which he furnished Masses upon all the great Festivals.'
CHINA and the East are not the same subject for marvel, here in the West, that they were even a couple of decades ago ; increased and speedier means of communication have made us all but neighbours. One of the results of this new contact has inevitably been the partial industrialization of China, and it is this industrialization that has started so many of the new problems China has now to face.

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.
To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and
50s, you can navigate by issue.
Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and
is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to
obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in
programmes, online etc.
This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers,
images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio
Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available
externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
