: MENDELSSOHN

String Quintet in A, Op. 18 played by the Kutcher String Quartet : Samuel Kutcher (violin), Max Salpeter (violin), Leonard Rubens (viola), George Roth (cello), and Douglas Thompson (viola)
Mendelssohn wrote two quintets for strings. The first in A, Op. 18, was written while he was at Berlin in 1826, when, at the age of seventeen, his genius had blossomed into full flower.
It is in four movements. The present second movement, an Intermezzo, was substituted for the original minuet movement in 1832, as a tribute to the memory of the composer's friend, Eduard Rietz , who had just died.
Those who admire graceful and charming melody, lucid construction, and polished craftsmanship will find all these qualities at their best in this quintet.

Typical Argentine airs played on the guitar
A gramophone programme arranged by A. P. Sharpe
Six years ago A. P. Sharpe , who is an authority on fretted-instrument records, noticed a pile of old records in Praed Street, Paddington. The words ' English Banjo, a recording by John Pidoux caught his eye. He bought that record for twopence. This was the beginning of his mammoth collection of fretted-instrument records. Now he possesses 1,500 recordings, not only of the banjo, mandolin, guitar, and ukulele but also of less well-known instruments such as the bandurria and octochorda. His aim is to obtain the 3,000 different fretted-instrument records known to be in existence.

: BBC ORCHESTRA

(Section A) Leader, Paul Beard
Conducted by Clarence Raybould
Eda Kersey (violin)
At least two great violin concertos of the nineteenth century-those of Brahms and Dvořák—were due to the influence of Joseph Joachim , the Hungarian violinist. While on a visit in the early summer of 1879 to the castle of Sychrov, near Turnov, as guest of Prince de Rohan, Dvorak composed his Violin Concerto. Like Brahms, he sent the solo part to Joachim to be edited, and three years later Joachim gave the work its first performance at one of his own concerts.
It is an extremely beautiful and effective work, striking a happy medium between the classical concerto and the more modern symphonic styles of writing.

: SONGS BY MACDOWELL

Herbert Heyner (baritone)
Long ago, sweetheart mine ; The swan bent low to the lily; A maid sings light ; As the glooming shadows creep ; My love and I ;
Thy beaming eyes ; The sea
Edward MacDowell was the only really great American composer of the nineteenth century. Though he wrote a number of excellent works on a large scale, it was as a miniaturist that he proved himself a master, particularly with regard to piano pieces and songs.
MacDowell was born in New.York in 1861 and died there in 1908. He studied at the Paris Conservatoire and later at Wiesbaden and Frankfurt where he came under Joachim Raff for composition. His admiration for Raft had an important influence on his career as a composer. After some years in Germany, where he distinguished himself as a pianist no less than as a composer, MacDowell returned to America and was appointed a professor of music at Columbia University.

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.
