: CHAMBER MUSIC

From Birmingham
THE EDITH ROBINSON QUARTET: EDITH ROBINSON (1st Violin), GERTRUDE BARKER (2nd Violin), HILDA LINDSAY (Viola), KATHLEEN MOORHOUSE (Violoncello)
(I) Slow and expressive, leading to Moderately quick ; (2) Very agitated; (3)Very slow; (4) Very quick and lively
SCHUMANN was trained to be a lawyer, and his youth was almost gone before he was able to give his whole attention to music. His full devotion to the art, when at last it came about, was the result of great talent for, and persistence in, Piano-playing.
It is not surprising, then, that when he started composing in earnest, for some time he produced a large quantity of piano music and little else.
In 1840 (at the age of thirty) he was married, and in the inspiration of the moment poured out a flood of song. Then he tackled works on a bigger scale, producing, among other things, his first Symphony in 1841. The following year saw the appearance of his first Quartets for Strings. The three in Op. 41 were written within about a month. The music is a compound of virility, vivacity and romantic inspiration a proof of the new zest that his happy marriage gave to life.

: ' A FOOL AND HIS MONEY '

A Wayside Comedy by LAURENCE HOUSMAN
Presented by STUART VINDEN
Not the sort of road one wants to be along after dark. Above its high bank, tangled with brushwood, the forest trees stand thickly, and their gnarled and twisted roots have made queer burrows in the soil where something bigger than a fox could find hiding. The light is fading, and Tim, an elderly ragamuffin, is sitting smoking. There is a whistle, and his pal Tony, in shuffling haste, limps up furtively.

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.

Welcome to BBC Genome

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.
