The BREARLEY STRING QUARTET
THE Russian publisher, Belaiev, who founded the celebrated publishing house that bears his name, was one of the most remarkable of those men who helped to make modern Russian muse a European influence. Cultured and wealthy, he collected round him the principal Russian composers of his day, and without seeking profit or stinting expense, he published lavishly and intelligently all the music these men chose to write. Helaiev's publishing activities may be said to have endowed a school and advanced a nation.
Many of these composers, anxious to make a gesture of their gratitude, made a habit of paying homage to Belaiev in the form of certain compositions written to be performed on the Friday evenings when they customarily met at the house of their hospitable publisher. These compositions, mostly in the form of chamber music, were labours of love and are in consequeuce charming rather than important. The collection of these little works, of which there are sixteen in all, and to which Rimsky-Korsakov, Liadov, Glazounov, Borodin, Sokolov. amongst others, contributed, were subsequently published under the title of Les Vendredis.

The Hon. HAROLD NICOLSON : To a low-brow'
IT was only fair, after Mr. Priestley's talk to the high-brow last Monday, that somebody should be asked to address a. few equally plain words to his opposite member. Low-brow is, of course, a purely negative term, applied to everybody who is not a high-brow. Low-browism is by far the more popular pose-the safety-first attitude of the man who doesn't know or care anything about art, but who calls a spade a spade and thinks that not only every picture but every book should tell a story ; who is, in short, either too busy or too lazy or too sensible or too stupid to bother about becoming a high-brow. We understand that there is now a definite cult of the low-brow among tho most up-to-date high-brows; Bloomsbury condescends to join hands with Balham, Biggleswade, and Blackpool in the enjoyment of detective stories or a Laurel and Hardy film. Thus, one way or another, most of us will find it easy to identify ourselves with tunight's Unnamed Listener.'

JOSEPHINE WRAY (Soprano)
THE B.B.C. ORCHESTRA
(Section D)
Led by LAURANCE TURNER
Conducted by B. WALTON O'DONNELL
JOSEF SUK is one of the leading Czech composers, and although London has heard little more than his chamber music, he has composed a good deal in other forms, particularly for orchestra. He was born in 1874, and came under the influence of Dvorak, whose pupil he was, and whose daughter he married. The quality of his music is lyrical, and his idiom classical. Schubert, Brahms, and of course Dvorak are his models. His technique is brilliant, while his mood as often leans towaiJs a passionate melancholy as to the poetic fantasy which is his natural inheritance. Suk was fur some years a member of the celebrated Bohemian String Quartet, and is now Director of the Prague Conservatoire.

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.
