: A CONCERT

(From Birmingham)
BERNARD Ross (Baritone)
EDITH JAMES (Entertainer at the Piano)
THE: NORRIS STANLEY PIANOFORTE SEXTET
Conducted by NORRIS STANLEY
THIS, a comparatively early work of the brilliant
French composer Debussy, was origina!ly a pianoforte duet.
The first of the four movements is a Barcarolle, a boating tune. in which a solo flute plays the main tune at the beginning. There is a middle section in a more virile rhythm, after which the first tune is heard again, played now by the violin.
The second movement is called ' Procession.' Two flutes begin this, to be followed soon by the oboes and other winds until at last the whole orchestra is playing it. Here, again, there is a contrasting middle section. and when the first tune returns, on the flutes as at first. the violins play the time of the middle section as an accompaniment to it.
A Minuet follows, dainty and graceful, the tune being shared, to begin with. by violin. flute, clarinet, oboe and English horn. The bassoon has an amusing part in the middle section, after which we hear the first part once more.
The last movement is a lively Ballet. The strings begin the tune. and then the winds take their place, after which the whole orchestra repeats it. A waltz breaks in, as middle section, and when the original tune is heard at the end, we hear the tune of the waltz along with it.
EDITH JAMES
Entertainer at the Piano
WELL and honourably known not only in his own country, but a broad, too, as a composer of many really beautiful songs. Roger Quilter is no less thoroughly at home in composing for the orchestra.

: Pianoforte Interlude

By EDWIN BENBOW
MARKINGhis name first as a brilliant concert pianist,
Grovlez has devoted many years of hard work to teaching and conducting. For a time chorus master and conductor at the Opera-Comique. he was transferred to the more important Opera itself in 1914 ; he has conducted Opera in the United States, too. The stage has naturally claimed a share of his own composition, but he has given us purely orchestral and chamber music as well. and his pieces for pianoforte—his own original instrument-fire naturally admirably laid out to display its best qualities.

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.
