: China — XII, Summing Up,' by Sir FREDERICK WHYTE

WITH this talk the most considerable Series of the season comes to an end. China has been considered in its historical and cultural aspects, and Chinese contemporary problems have been given serious attention. Today Sir Frederick Whyte who has recently been appointed adviser to the Nationalist Goverment in China, sums up. China is at the cross-roads : is she to develop along the lines of Western industrialism without any regard for her fine background of culture ? What will be her future place in the world's civilization And what are to be her relations to Great Britain ? These ! are some of the points Sir Frederick will touch upon.

LEON GOOSSENS (Oboe)
THE BROSA STRING QUARTET:
BROSA ; GREENBAUM; RUBENS ; PINI
This Quintet by one of the most original of the younger English composers, is dedicated to Leon Goossens , who plays the oboe part in this performance, as he did when the Quintet was last broadcast. It is in three movements. The first begins with a little Prelude, in which the oboe seems to be improvising ; the music grows in strength and excitement, until the oboe with an upward rush brings us to the main quick part of the movement. Beginning vigorously, it ends very quietly and serenely. In the second movement, slow and rather solemn, the oboe has again a large share, though one beautiful theme is given first to the viola.
The last movement begins like a merry Jig, but soon the violoncello presents a calmer mood, with a tune of his own. The lively merriment of the Jig comes back, however, and with only brief interruptions, brings the movement to a vivacious end.

GEORGES JACOBI , born m 1840, and educated in Paris, began his musical career as a violinist. At the age of twenty-one ho was awarded the first prize for violin playing at the Paris Conservatoire -a distinction which a number of the world's greatest violinists have won in turn. For some years after that he was associated with Offenbach, and conducted several of the joyous comic operas which had an unrivalled popularity in their own day. In 1871 he came to England, and for the next thirty years was Musical Director of the Alhambra in London, producing several of the Offenbach pieces there, and composing music for the imposing number of 108 ballots, a feat which is no doubt a record in its own way. Our older listeners will remember how popular a feature of these ballets Jacobi's music was, but besides that tremendous activity, he composed throe comic operas, a number of smaller stage pieces, and some purely instrumental music which includes string quartets and a concerto for violin.
Jacobi was Professor at the Royal College of Music, twice President of the Association of Conductors in England, and was decorated both by the French Government and by the King of Spain. As listeners can bear for themselves in this programme, conducted by his son, he had an apparently endless gift of bright, vivacious melody.

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.
