: THE FOUNDATIONS OF MUSIC

BRAHMS' VIOLIN and PIANO SONATAS
Played by WILLIAM PRIMROSE (Violin) and VICTOR HELY-HUTCHINSON (Pianoforte) Sonata in G (Op. 78), First Movement
THE three Sonatas by Brahms for Violin and Piano are all mature works, the first
(Opus 78) not appearing until after his first two symphonies (1876-8).
Each has its individual beauty, and all three are well contrasted and highly original.
It is notable that in them Brahms was one of the first composers to pay special attention to the principle that the material should be well suited to each of those widely different instruments, the Violin and the Piano.
The First Sonata (the one that made for
Brahms many of his best frierds) is in three Movements only, of which the First is fairly lively, but also thoughtful, perhaps at moments wistful.

Reminiscences of ' The Gaiety ' - Meyer Lutz, arr. Kappe

: 'I REMEMBER'

Mr. GEORGE GROSSMIT
'From My Dressing Room at the Theatre
Relayed from Daly's Theatre
TO the last three generations of theatre-goers the name of Grossmith has been a household word, and it has lost none of its lustre during the reign of the second George. His own stage career goes back to the early nineties, and in the course of it he has played in some of the best-remembered of musical comedies—The Gaiety Girl, The Shop Girl, Our Miss Gibbs, and Tonight's the Night, to name only a few ; and more recently he was in No No Nanette, that record-breaker of the post-war stage. Besides his activities as an actor and manager, he has from the first taken a keen interest in broadcasting, and his experience has been of much assistance to the B.B.C. Tonight, from his dressing-room at Daly's Theatre, where he is now playing in Lady Mary, he will give some reminiscences of his stage career.

: A MILITARY BAND CONCERT

(Continued)
THE Operas of Mercadante (1795-1870) were long popular in Italy and Vienna. Besides his stage works (about sixty in all), he wrote masses and other sacred music. He was music director at two cathedrals in turn, and in 1840 was elected Director of the Naples Conservatoire. He gradually went blind, but dictated his operas after 1862 when his sight was completely gone.

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.
