'Im and 'ER in 'Odds and Ends'


by Ticco AMAR (Violin) and GUNTHER RAMIN (Cembalo)
Relayed from the Bishopsgate Institute
TICCO AMAR, the violinist in this recital of music, as fresh and wholesome as it is unfamiliar, is already well known to listeners as the leader of the Quartet which boars his name side by side with that of Hindemith, the brilliant viola player and composer.
Gunther Ramin is the organist in the Thomaskirche of Leipzig, the Church which the great Bach himself made famous for all time. There is thus a special interest in having a great organ Prelude and Fugue of the master's, played by one who is, musically, his direct lineal descendant, as well as being a distinguished upholder of his great tradition.
If for nothing else, Buxtehude would be remembered as one of the masters whose music was sincerely studied by the great Bach. It formed a very important part of that tradition which Bach made the starting point of his own splendid music. But as an organist himself, and as composer of organ and church music, he has a place of real honour in the history both of the instrument and of music. A Swede by birth, he spent a good part of his life in Germany, dying at Lübeck in 1707. ! Pisendel was a pupil of Corelli's, who was master of his instrument at so early an age that, when he was only fifteen he became one of the Chapel violinists to the Margrave of Ansbach. He was afterwards Director of Music to the King of Poland, and then spent some years in the suite of the Prince of Saxony, travelling throughout Europe with his master. The last years of his life were spent as leader of the orchestra at the Saxon Court, and in the Opera Orchestra, and ! ho died there, in Dresden, in 1755. He was among the best of the early eighteenth-century violinists, and had a good deal to do with raising the art to a high level in Germany. As listeners will hear in this Sonata for violin without accompaniment, he must, indeed, have been a master of his instrument and all its resources.

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.
