: A Violoncello Recital by THELMA Reiss

By technique and personality and a certain intensive beauty in her playing, Thelma Reiss has won her way into the front rank of our younger 'cellists. Our own critics have acclaimed her ; France, Holland, Norway, and Spain have all recognised her outstanding gifts.
Something of her li fe and individuality, her wild childhood by the sea, her transition to seriousness, her early struggles (although she could play the Goltermann concerto in A minor when she was seven and win an open scholarship to the Royal College of Music in her teens), will be described in a future ' People ou Hear '.

Love at the door/ Samuel Barber The sea has covered her face.... .Braun
Like Britain, America used to be considered a country without music. But during the last generation or two there has developed a school of American composers and executive artists of great individuality and striking gifts whose attainments have now given America an important place on the musical map.
This evening an opportunity will be given to hear a programme including various American items performed by a group of young American artists, who have been sent to Britain by the Philadelphia branch of the English-Speaking Union with the idea of contributing to the Jubilee celebrations.
The artists are all graduates of the famous Curtis Institute of Music. Rose Bampton is a member of the Metropolitan Opera Company, and has sung at the concerts of the Philadelphia Orchestra, the Chicago Symphony Orchestra, and the New York Oratorio Society. Agnes Davis and Benjamin de Loache, who are married to each other, are also well-known singers. Miss Davis frequently appears with the Philadelphia Symphony Orchestra Opera. Madame de Martha Massina studied the piano under Josef Hoffmann and is now on the teaching staff of the Curtis Institute. The Curtis String Quartet, whose personnel consists of four young Philadelphia musicians, has already established an enviable reputation.
Another interesting personality is the composer, Sam Barber , who studied at the Curtis Institute, twice won an important prize for composition given by Columbia University, and has now won the Prix de Rome. QUARTET

8.45 THE WEEK'S
GOOD CAUSE
An Appeal on behalf of WHITSTABLE AND TANKERTON COTTAGE AND CONVALESCENT HOSPITAL by the Rev. Canon H. R. L. SHEPPARD , C.H., D.D.
The Whitstable and Tankerton Hospital was built in 1926, when the limited funds available permitted no more than twenty-five beds, which were soon quite inadequate for this growing town. The committee housed the staff in hostels and thus made room for forty-four beds. Still the cry ,is for more room.
£4,000 is urgently needed for additional wards, preparation room, lift, and so forth. Loyal as the town is in its support of its hospital, such a sum is unrealisable without a wider appeal.
Contributions will be gratefully acknowledged, and should be addressed to [address removed]

: Universal and International Exhibition in Brussels

Concert by THE LONDON PHILHARMONIC
ORCHESTRA
Conductor,
Sir THOMAS BEECHAM , Bt.
PART II
Relayed from the Palais des Beaux
Arts, Brussels
A few months ago the B B C Symphony Orchestra with Dr. Adrian Boult visited Brussels and gave a memorable concert at the Palais des Beaux Arts. The Belgian press acclaimed the orchestra to be comparable to the best in Europe, such as the Berlin Philharmonic and Vienna Philharmonic Orchestras.
There is no doubt that equal praise will be given to another great British Orchestra, the London Philharmonic Orchestra, which is being taken to Brussels by its conductor-in-chief, Sir Thomas Beecham , for two concerts forming a part of the entertainments of the International Exhibition there.
A noteworthy feature of the programmes is the predominance of British music, of which Bax's ' Garden of Fand ' and Elgar's ' Enigma ' Variations, to be heard this evening, are fine representative examples that are already well known to, and admired by, Continental audiences.
The ' Enigma' Variations was first performed in 1899, while the ' Garden of Fand ' dates from 1916. The latter was inspired by the old Irish mythological story of the lovely Fand who was the daughter of Mananan, the Celtic Neptune. Cuchulain, mightiest of legendary heroes, was lured by her away from his country, and from Emer, his wife, and held captive, until Emer made her way to Fand's enchanted island in the sea and prevailed on the goddess to give her back her hero.

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.
