: 'Keyboard Talk: Beethoven'

D. F. Tovey , Mus. Doc. (Reid Professor of Music, Edinburgh University)
(From Edinburgh)
A brief summary of the second of Professor Tovey's talks on Beethoven's piano works is as follows : Beethoven's instrumental music is essentially more dramatic than anything that could be put on the stage. The ways of arousing expectation depend mostly on a sense of key-relation or tonality. The various effects of key-relation should be more mysterious to the non-musician than the sensation of red or of the taste of a peach, but they are quite as impossible to describe. The question, ' what Beethoven expects us to recognise' will be discussed by Professor Tovey this evening.

: ' In your Garden'

C. H. MlDDLETON
Garden lovers will remember the talks given in the past by the popular broadcaster, Mr. C. H. Middleton, and will be glad to hear that he will be coming weekly to the microphone during the coming months and will act as the B.B.C.'s gardening correspondent.
Today in his second talk of the new series he will be bringing along Mr. Tom Hay, V.M.H., M.V.O., Superintendent of the Royal Parks, London, and Buckingham Palace Gardens. Everybody knows the beauty of the London Parks, whether for daffodils in March and April, for Darwin tulips in May, or dahlias in the summer, and they should be interested to hear a few words by the man who brings this beauty about.
The autumn is now with us, but the gardener has got to think and plan for the spring. Mr. Middleton and Mr. Hay will talk today about spring flowers.

(Section C)
(Led by LAURANCE TURNER )
Conducted by JOHN BARBIROLLI
Many of those who have heard both, declare that the opera Konigskinder (King's Children) is even more charming than Hansel and Gretel, and altogether a better work. It was introduced here by Sir Thomas Beecham some twenty years ago, and it then so impressed that it is odd that it has not been performed since. The text is bv Ernst Rosmer , a German dramatist, and it is founded on an old German fairy tale.
The list of characters is a long one, and perhaps the most difficult of all to cast is the Goose, who has to appear and behave herself decorously whenever the Goose-girl, another character, appears on the stage. The scene, to which this music is an introduction, shows a meadow outside the town ; the townsfolk are expecting the arrival of the King's Children, and a holiday spirit pervades the scene.

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.
