THE TOOKEY PIANO TRIO : MURIEL TOOKEY (Violin), ELSA TQOKEY ('Cello), FREDERICK
TOOKEY (Pianoforte)
Adagio (Slow); Finale
GADE was a Dane, whose early work found favour in Mendelssohn's eyes. When Gade was twenty-six Mendelssohn conducted his first Symphony at Leipzig, and wrote the young man a fine letter of congratulation.
Later, Gade acted as Mendelssohn's deputy in conducting at Leipzig. Then he went home to Copenhagen, becoming Conductor, of the Musical Union there, and, from 1861, Court Music Director, receiving several honours from Royalty, the University and other bodies.
Mendelssohn and Schumann influenced his music perhaps more than did his ' native wood-notes wild.' He was much less of a nationalist than Grieg, for instance.
His Pianoforte Trio, Op. 42, contains an animated First Movement, a vivacious Scherzo and a slow section, followed by a vigorous Finale.

THE Sea Pieces, originally written for Pianoforte, contain some of the best and, in the sense of impressiveness, the biggest, of MacDowell's short pieces. Each piece is preceded by a line or two of poetry, generally the Composer's own.
(a) Before To the Sea, MacDowell has written :
' Ocean, thou mighty monster.' ' With dignity and breadth ' is the indication.
(b) From a Wandering Iceberg has this stanza prefixed :
' An errant princess of the North,
A virgin snowy white,
Sails adown the summer seas
To realms of burning light.'
(c) A.D. MDCXX. A suggestion of the spirit of the Pilgrim Fathers aa they voyaged to a new land.
(d) Starlight. A piece marked to be played
'tenderly."
(e) Song.
' A merry song, a chorus brave,
And yet a sigh regret
For roses sweet, in woodland lanes —
Ah, love can ne'er forget I
(f) Front the Depths. 'And who shall sound the mystery of the sea T '
(g) Nautilus. A fairy sail and a fairy boat.' (h) In Mid-Ocean.
Inexorable!
Thou straight line of eternal fate That ring'st the world,
Whilst on thy moaning breast We play our puny parts
And reckon us immortal I'

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.

Welcome to BBC Genome
