: New Friends in Music-Ravel

Introduced by PERCY SCHOLES and KATHLEEN LONG (Pianoforte)
RAVEL—the composer of the dazzlingly brilliant Jeux d'eaux ('Fountains'), and the plaintive Pavane for a Dead Princess of Spain, pieces which everybody who once hears them is compelled to love ; and Ravel the composer of the enigmatic Scarbo, and other pieces which the élite tell us are of just as surpassing. beauty and just as pointed significance, yet which at a first hearing leave us muttering in bewilderment : ' Is Ravel mad. or are we ? '
In both his phases, says Miss Long, that excellent pianist, and her colleague of this evening,
Mr Scholes, Ravel is one of the truest poets of music and a friendly poet who only 'calls for our more intimate knowledge to be understood and affectionately admired. He is waiting to become a 'New Friend in Music ' to thousands to whom he is yet a mere distant acquaintance, and with Miss Long as his interpreter, and Mr. Scholes just putting in a helpful explanatory word here and there, we have at last the perfect opportunity of establishing a friendship which hundreds of succeeding broadcast programmes (for Ravel is often broadcast) will then strengthen and confirm.

: 'NURSE HENRIETTA'

by HERMANN KESSER
In this remarkable monodrama' there are many characters, but only one voice.
There is almost no action, for incident loses itself in soliloquy : nevertheless, suspense, love, hate, jealousy, death, a trial scene are all vividly depicted.
Tho story of 'Nurse Henrietta' may be regarded as either phantasy or as reality. Life, after all, is made up of both, and of something which is more than both, although contained, in each. Here is a paradox of which the art of the writer aims at providing a solution.
The reproduction of this curiously intimate kind of drama by means of the microphone marks another advance in the technique of radio play-writing.

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.
