(Leader, J. Mouland Begbie )
Conducted by Colin Davis
Michal Spisak , who will be forty-four this year, is a Polish composer who has been living in PaTis since 1937; he studied at the Katowice Conservatoire and with Nadia Boulanger. His music, which is for the most part light in calibre, aims mainly at the qualities of good taste and craftsmanship.
His Serenade won first prize in the Queen Elisabeth Competition held in Brussels in 1953. It is in four movements : a short Intrada, an Etude-Danse, a Romance, and a moto perpetuo Finale.

: THE FRIDAY RECITAL

Lamar Crowson (piano)
Ilse Wolf (soprano) Ernest Lush (piano)
(The sonatas are recorded)
The songs of Hugo Wolf are settings of poems by Goethe: an epitaph on the Greek poet Anacreon, a pseudo-oriental lament for lost love, and three of the songs of Mignon, the strange, tragic child who appears in Goethe's novel Wilhelm Meister.
The six songs by Schumann are: a love-song of the ' message ' type; a song of welcome to spring; a Spanish love-song; and three songs from the cycle to poems by Eichendorff, Op. 39. The first of these last three is a nocturne; the second a melancholy evocation of the song of the nightingale; the third another nocturne, which is also a passionate love-song. Deryck Cooke

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
