: New Friends in Music

Introduced by Mr. Percy Scholes
The announcement that Arnold Bennett and Eugene Goossens were, as librettist and composer, collaborating in the preparation of an opera aroused everybody's interest a year or two ago. But when was it to be heard? New operas in this country sometimes take a long time to reach the footlights. Now comes the news that the great moment is at hand. In a few days a Covent Garden audience will enjoy the unusual opportunity of hearing a work by a living British composer. This gives point to the subject of Mr. Percy Scholes' 'New Friends in Music' hour of tonight. He will probably introduce us to this 'new friend' by means of some of his piquant little piano pieces of the 'Kaleidoscope ' and 'Ships' series, so accustoming our ears to a code of harmonies that may be new to some of them. The composer himself will perform those pieces through his electric 'Duo-Art' recordings, and will explain the pictures and stories behind them (for they are pictures and story pieces) by means of the annotations he has written alongside the perforations of the 'Audio-graphic' Rolls. So far Mr. Scholes' treatment of Goossens' music will be similar to that which he gave to Stravinsky's 'Fire Bird' a month or two ago. This done, he will tell us something of the new opera and will probably offer us the opportunity of making acquaintance with its music by means of typical 'samples'

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.
