OLD ITALIAN VIOLONCELLO SONATAS
Played by IVOR JAMES

: Shepherd Munn (Pianoforte)

MR. SHEPHERD MUNN , who, after a course of study in Leipzig, bids fair to take a high place among pianists of today, was for some time a member of the B.B.C.'s staff, first at Edinburgh and then at Newcastle Station. His pianoforte playing, and his participation as an Undo in the Children's Hour, and in many other broadcasts, are still happily remembered in those parts of the world.
This Sonata is a very interesting example of the fusion of classical and modern ideals. Its first performance in Britain will give musicians a good illustration of its composer's modern idiom. Dobrowen was for some years in Dresden as a Professor of Composition ; he is now Conductor of the Philharmonic Society of Oslo. A Russian by birth, he is winning a big reputation as a conductor, for his masterly handling of the orchestra, and for the originality and fidelity of his readings.

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

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.
