: ' NEW WAYS FOR HARD TIMES ' —XIV

Mrs. WOODS: In the Garden '

: EDWARD O'HENRY

At THE ORGAN of TUSSAUD'S CINEMA

: A Sonata Recital

FREDERICK GRINKE (Violin)
ROBERT EDWARDS (Pianoforte)
IN 1908, John Ireland won a Cobbett competition against 134 competitors, with his first Sonata for violin and pianoforte. The work was published, and quickly found a place in the repertories of more enterprising violinists, and Ireland's reputation began to take lank. His next sonata, the one now to be performed, was written during the early years of the War, and was first played by Albert Sammons and William Murdoch in March, 1917.
In some strange way the music of this sonata seemed to take on the colour of a war-harassed world, and to reflect human emotions of that time very exactly. At any rate, the sonata had a great success—the Press could not speak highly enough of it, and soon every violinist was including it in his repertory. What is even more unusual for a Chamber Music work, competing offers were received from publishers, and a first edition was completely sold out before any of the copies had been printed. No work of its day had a more bracing influence on the prospects of British music.

: 'A Miscellany'

Being a collection of Plays, Songs, Poems, and a Ballet, chosen and adapted for broadcasting by C. DENIS FREEMAN and M. H. Allen.
THIS programme is the first of a new series, -*- which aims to include matter more varied than can be brought under the heading of any of the forms into which broadcasting 'now falls. This Srst ' collection of items' starts with a little play—virtuaDy a monologue—by Katherine Mansfield , a study of the inner self of a charwoman, p)ayed by Margaret Yarde , who has become famous on the stage by her interpretation of just such roles. It is followed by the best-known of the Idylls of Theocritus, in which the Psalm of Adonis is set in the chatter of women who lived in Alexandria more than two thousand years ago. Hugh Bradford 's ballot, TAe JocMatt! and f/te Pigeons, has been done at Sadler's Wells, and the music has been broadcast, but tonight's arrangement, by which lie will play it as a pianoforte solo with spoken monologue, is new. The programme a!so includes Arthur Bliss 's song, 'Madam Noy,' which Anne Thursfield will sing to the accompaniment of a curious combination— nuto, clarinet, bassoon, harp, viola and double bass.

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.
