MARIA DE LAGUNA, M.A.(Lond.) (Examiner to the University of London)
(-1920)

: Quartet

Good characterisation is a feature of this play, which shows the discontents among the members of a successful quartet. There is Melchior, first violin and employer of the other three, pompous and egotistical. Vere, the viola, a wise cynic who never interferes with other peoples' quarrels. Paul, the 'cello, stout and good-hearted, who adds to his salary by giving private lessons, and is friend to the second violin, David.
David is the cause of all the trouble.
By going without, by looking like a rag-bag and living in a slum, he is paying off instalments on an Amati fiddle he has bought. Vere calls it idealism, Melchior foolishness. But then Melchior covets the fiddle. At all events, from the time the Amati comes into the quartet the tension increases, mounting all the time to the climax, which makes a dramatic and unexpected curtain to this individual play.
Listeners will look forward to hearing that fine actor, Frank Cellier , in the part of Melchior, for it will be his first broadcast since he played Menenius Agrippa in Coriolanus, in April last year. Frank Cellier is an actor of wide experience. He must have played in every play of Shakespeare's and in most of the old English comedies again and again. He has toured in Germany, America, the West Indies, and South Africa. Among his parts in London in the last ten years may be mentioned the Nobleman in A Man with a Load of Mischief, Mr. Amy in Mary Rose , Augustus X in The Improper Duchess, and Samuel Pepys in a revival of And So to Bed.
'Quartet' will be repeated in all Regional Programmes tomorrow night.

ANTONIO LOTTI was the first Vice Maestro di Cappella at St. Mark's (1692), and subsequently principal Maestro di Cappella ; he was a famous male contralto. He ranks high among composers, and although the last representative of the old severe school, he used modern harmonies with freedom and grace, expression and variety. He wrote operas, madrigals, and sacred music. This aria, Pur dicesti, perhaps the best known of what little is now heard of Lotti's work, has always been a favourite with prima donnas, and was very prominent in the repertory of Adelina Patti.
GIOVANNI BATTISTA PERGOLESI was bom in 1710, and died of consumption at the age of twenty-six. In that very short life he composed a great deal of music, mainly for the church and for the stage ; little of it, however, has come down to us, for it is not all of equal merit. The most important works by which he is known are the delightful little opera La Serva Padrona and the Stabat Mater, a work that has always been held in Italy with the greatest regard. Of his songs one of the favourites is this ' Se tu m'ami'. Much of Pergolesi's charm lies in the sentimental beauty of his melodies.

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.
