MOSA CHAVIVI (violoncello)
FRANZ REIZENSTEIN (pianoforte)
Mosa Chavivi comes from Tel-Aviv
(Palestine). When he played before Feuermann some years ago the latter was so enthusiastic about Chavivi's great natural talent that he urged him to complete his 'cello studies under his guidance. This is the first time that Chavivi has broadcast in England and his first public appearance will be on October 30, at the Æolian Hall, with - Franz Reizenstein at the piano.
Franz Reizenstein is a pianist and composer. He was a favourite pupil of Paul Hindemith , who has said that he was one of the finest interpreters of modern music.
These two artists are introducing a Sonata by Bernhard Heiden , a pupil of Hindemith, who now lives in Detroit.

Max Reger (1873-1916)
Organ Music
Played by C. H. TREVOR
Fantasia in C minor, Op. 29
Prelude and Fugue in E, Op. 56, No. I
' Max Reger 's counterpoint', says Edwin Evans , ' was judged to be somewhat free in his day, but in principle he was a conservative, and his whole nature would have shuddered at the contrapuntal aspect of present-day " nco-classicism ". One might, however, be justified in saying of him that, like Bach himself, he faced two ways. Bach summed up the polyphonic past and laid the foundations of modern music. Reger looked back across the whole Romantic movement to Bach as the source of musical wisdom, and forward to a contrapuntal renascence. In this he was in his day an exception.
A special article by Edwin Evans on Max Reger 's Organ Music is on page 13.

'Players for the Play'
E. MARTIN BROWNE
The brilliant cast of the latest musical-comedy success would probably cause a sensation if they were engaged to take part in a Tchekov play-and a most unfortunate sensation it would be, too. The Tchekovian actor likewise would cut a sorry figure in a Jack Buchanan or Leslie Henson role. Extreme contrasts, of course ! But this evening E. Martin Browne will discuss the many factors that should influence the choice of a play for production.
Questions such as the size of the stage, verse or prose, costume or modern dress ; whether players should project or submerge their personalities in the parts they play-all these problems are also to be debated by Martin Browne , and two or three other experts whom he will bring to the microphone.

TATIANA MAKUSHINA (soprano)
THE LONDON STRING TRIO :
Jean Pougnet (violin) ; William Primrose (viola) ; Anthony Pini
(violoncello)
Mozart put the finishing touches to this Divertimento ' of six pieces ' on September 27, 1788, about six weeks after the completion of the ' Jupiter ' Symphony. (In fact, it was his first large-scale work after the Symphony.) ' Each movement of this Trio is planned on broad lines ', says Jahn, ' and worked out with the greatest love and care, so that the Trio-unquestionably one of Mozart's most admirable works-is a true " cabinet-piece " of chamber music. It is impossible to imagine anything more charming than the trio of the second minuet' (i.e. the middle part of the fifth movement).

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.

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.
