DOROTHY' MABELTILLETT (Soprano)
THE JOHN FRY STRING Quartet
BEETHOVEN realized very well that a String Quartet is no job for an inexperienced or immature composer, and when he was offered quite a generous fee, in 1795, to compose one for a wealthy patron, lie declined on the ground that he was not yet sufficiently master of his art; he was then twenty-five. Although he declined the commission, however, he sot to work, for his own education, to composing string quartets, although the two which he is known to have embarked on both turned into other things. It was only four years later, when his style was already maturing towards the great middle period, that he composed the six string quartets which, as Opus 18, are dedicated to Prince Lobkowitz.
Slight in structure and design as compared with the noble quartets of his middle period and the great string quartets which were among the last things he wrote, these first six are all full of fresh and breezy melody, and all so clear in their form as to be easily followed and enjoyed, although that very simplicity demands that they shall be finely played.

: Mr. ROGER FRY: The Meaning of Pictures' -VI'

Mn. ROGER FRY 'S last talk in this illuminating series will take the form of a kind of summing up of his general inquiry, i.e., what it is that those who are most interested in the great master-pieces of pictorial art find in them, how they look at them, what they look for, and what they know it is useless to look for. He will a!so give some further consideration to the question (begun last week) of dramatic interest and formal harmony in pictures.

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
