GRIEG'S feet were first set on the path of music by his friend Ole Bull, the Violinist, to whose influence we owe a good many exceedingly effective Violin pieces that Grieg wrote. He attempted few large-scale works, and when he used the Sonata scheme, one finds, usually, that he has simply written three very effective and quite simply constructed pieces, very charming, but not essentially built up into one homogeneous work. He is almost always at his best in short lyrical pieces. This Sonata aims, in its First Movement, at greater intensity of feeling than most of his other works.
HEJRE, Kati! (Hello, Katie !) is one of a series of Scenes from the Czardas, the national dances of Hungary. ' Czardas ' originally meant noisy revelry, and it is significant that it is derived from a word that means ' ale-house ' !
The dances are generally divided into sections, a slow portion, the Lassan, being followed by one or more quick measures, called Friszkas. Hejre, Kati ! is constructed after this fashion.
Hubay (born 1858) has taught a great many of the best-known violinists-Szigeti, von Vecsey, and our own Jelly d'Aranyi among others. He is Director of the Royal High School for Music at Budapest.

And a running Commentary on the Cinder Track Race Meeting
At Stamford Bridge
Under the Auspices of the Motor
Track Racing Association,
Relayed from Stamford Bridge
T IKE greyhound racing, motorcycle racing on cinder tracks is a recent importation into this country, and one that has immediately won the enthusiasm of English sport-lovers. The thrills of the ' dirt track,' ghastly in the strange white rays of the floodlights, where the crack riders come roaring and skidding round the hairpin bends, have gripped the Londoner thoroughly, and Stamford Bridge, the home of football and athletics and the London headquarters of baseball, has added another success to its list. Tonight these thrills will be communicated-vicariously-to the great body of listeners who live out of reach of Stamford Bridge.
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.
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.
This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers,
images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio
Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available
externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
