: A Song Recital I

by Sir GEORGE HENSCHEL
SINCE Sir George Henschel made his home with us in 1884, he has been a leading figure in the British world of music. It was he who established the London Symphony Concerts which for eleven years did much to introduce to London audiences new works, both British and foreign, which might otherwise not have had a hearing. Ho revived also much forgotten music, and in 1891 organised a choir to take part in the large choral works. For some years he conducted the Scottish Orchestra in Glasgow and Edinburgh, and in 1805 brought the orchestra to Windsor to give a command concert before the Court. One contemporary notice referred to ' Sir George Henschel and his band of wild Highlanders,' the writer apparently being unaware that the orchestra was largely recruited from Germany. But heavy as is the debt we owe him in these ways, it is by his singing, to his own accompaniment, particularly of Schubert's songs, that he keeps a place of his very own in our affections. There, his art is of that quality which can make one forget that it is art at all; even now, with his eightieth year in view, Sir George is a very prince of singers, to whose wonderful gifts mere words can never hope to do anything like justice.

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.
