NEYSA FORSHAW (violin)
WILLIAM BuscH (pianoforte)
IN 1892, in his fifty-first year, Dvorak accepted an invitation to go to New York to become Director of the newly-founded National Conservatory of Music.
This Sonatina, which appeared soon after his return, was claimed, like the ' New World ' Symphony and the ' Nigger ' Quartet, as having been inspired by his interest in the native music of the States, and one of its movements is always known as the Indian Canzonetta '. Its tunes may well have come from one of the native American sources, although we cannot be sure that it was Dvorak himself who gave the movement that name. But, whatever the origin of its melodies, the Sonatina is throughout fresh and breezy, and has always been popular with players and audiences alike.

HAYDN STRING QUARTETS, Op. I
Played by THE STRATTON STRING QUARTET :
George Stratton (violin) ; Carl Taylor (violin) ; Watson Forbes (viola);
John Moore (violoncello)
Quartet in B flat (No. I)
1. Presto; 2. Menuetto ; 3. Adagio; 4. Menuetto ; 5. Presto
HAYDN has been called the ' Father of the String Quartet ' ; that distinction can scarcely be denied him, for when he first began to compose, the form which he subsequently developed practically did not exist, whilst before he died Mozart had written all his wonderful Quartets, and Beethoven, on the threshold of his career, was writing such marvellous works as the ' Rasoumovsky' Quartets. Haydn wrote more than eighty Quartets in all, and they are grouped, more often than not, in sixes, as is this opus I. Written when Haydn was in his early twenties, at Weinzirl, where he was enjoying the protection of his first patron, there is no question that Haydn was in these works experimenting in a new form, the symphonic. For example, the fifth of this group, opus I, is now thought to have been his first symphony. A peculiarity of all these six, with the exception of the fifth, is that they are in five movements, two of which are minuets. Of this group the first five are being played in the time devoted to Foundations, and the sixth, to complete the performance of opus I, in Friday evening's Chamber Music programme at 8 o'clock.

WE ARE to be seen this evening at 7.30 through the eyes of a distinguished economist, who was formerly Professor of Political Economy at the College of Commerce, Berlin.
We are thus to hear how we appear to an interested observer whose own experience has been primarily gained in another country. Professor Bonn's broadcast is a forerunner to an American view of our character on February 12, and to a Chechoslovakian view on February 19.

' The Student Returns '
Dr. HELENA WRIGHT
TWELVE YEARS AGO Dr. Helena Wright i arrived in China with her husband and ! two sons, and seven years ago they came back with four sons, and a wide knowledge of life in China. Dr. Wright spent the first year in Peking at the Language School, and then, mistress of the Mandarin tongue, joined the staff of the hospital and teaching school of the Shantung Christian University. She was the first woman to hold a staff appointment there, and she opened a department for women's diseases.
The University had three Faculties,
Medicine, Arts, and Theology, and about four hundred students, all of them Chinese, and all the teaching had to be done in that language.
The Wrights have kept in continual touch with all the old students in Tsinan'since their return, and with the Chinese Student community in London. The latter will surely be among the most interested listeners to her broadcast.

(Section C)
(Led by MARIE WILSON )
Conducted by JOSEPH LEWIS
BEN WILLIAMS (tenor)
The Forre of Destiny, from which this aria is taken, is one of the most sanguinary of all operas. (Every one of the chief characters is killed before the final curtain falls.) It was produced in St. Petersburg in 1862. Within recent years it was revived in London at Covent Garden.
In an argument Don Alvaro is accidentally killed by the father of Don Carlo , who swears vengeance. In that pursuit he wanders over the country in search of his victim. Both Don Alvaro and Don Carlo find themselves, in the second act, in the army of Spain at war against Germany. The two become fast friends, unaware of each other's identity and of their blood feud. Later, Don Alvaro is wounded. He calls his friend Don Carlo to him, and this is the subject of this aria. He is about to give his friend a packet of letters to be opened only after his death.
SIR JULIUS BENEDICT was a German who followed in the steps of Handel by spending a great deal of his life in England. Although it was not his only opera, he is best remembered by The Lily of Killarney, an opera founded on Dion Boucicault 's famous play, The Colleen Bawn. one OF Debussy's fellow students at Rome tells us that as a young man Debussy ' delighted in all that was refined, delicate, complicated, and strange ... What appealed to him most of all was the expression of intimate feelings. Human productions that were planned on a grand scale astonished him, w ithout arousing either his admiration or his enthusiasm ...' The charming ' Petite Suite', originally written in 1886 for piano duet and later orchestrated by Biisser, is, indeed ' intimate ' music, and characteristic of the composer's love of refinement and delicacy.

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.
