: A Pianoforte Recital

by LEONARD ISAACS
Scarlatti has well been called the founder of modern pianoforte technique, and as a harpsichord virtuoso he secured a great reputation. A large proportion of the short pieces Scarlatti wrote for the harpsichord he called sonatas', but they bear little or no resemblance in form to the sonatas of Haydn and Mozart. At that period ' sonata ' was the vague general term for a piece of music to be played on instruments, while ' cantata ' meant a piece of music to be sung.
These charming little 'sonatas' of Scarlatti sound as fresh today as ever, and their tunefulness, delicacy of workmanship, and brilliancy of style, combine to make them irresistibly attractive.

: 'The Apostle Play'

By MAX MELL
Max Mell is an authority on philosophical subjects, and is the author of several books published in his own country, Germany. His translator in this particular instance, Maud Valerie White, is well known for her songs, many of which are as popular now as they were at the end of the last century. She was a holder of the much-coveted Mendelssohn's Scholarship at the Royal Academy of Music. Her musical settings of poetry by Herrick and Shelley, and of German and French poets such as Schiller, Victor Hugo , and Heine, show her beautiful sense of feeling for verse both in English and foreign tongues.
Her translation of Max Mell 's play is in blank verse. She has artistically preserved the simplicity of the original script without leaving the clumsy phraseology of a literal interpretation.
The plot is simple, and the sincerity of the dialogue ismanifest from the first line to the last. The period and the country where the cottage is situated are not disclosed. Nor does it matter. Max Mell's play does not depend for its effect upon such circumstances as place and time.

: Short Story

'The Wizard', an Irish story, by WILFRED SHINE
Told by THE AUTHOR

: A Sonata Recital

ADOLF BUSCH (violin)
RUDOLF SERKIN (pianoforte)
The key of B minor usually drew out the best of Bach, and C minor evoked the best of Beethoven, and the B minor violin sonata-written, like the others, in the Cöthen period (1717-23)-is generally considered the finest of the set. Its opening adagio, in particular, with its strikingly effective double-stopping, shows Bach at the height of his powers.
This Sonata of Beethoven's, for violin and pianoforte, takes its name from the violinist, Rudolph Kreutzer , to whom Beethoven dedicated it, calling him in the dedication ' his friend '. Nothing is known of relations between Beethoven and Kreutzer, and the dedication has always been something of a mystery, although Kreutzer was, of course, one of the outstanding figures, if not the foremost, in the violin world of Beethoven's day.
It was with the English mulatto,
Bridgewater, that Beethoven first played the work, and Bridgewater claimed that it was originally dedicated to him. No one knows whether this is so, or not.

: THE WEEK'S GOOD CAUSE

An Appeal on behalf of OFFICERS' FAMILIES' INDUSTRIES, by Lady MONT
GOMERY-MASSINGBERD
In 1919 the Officers' Families' Association started with a grant of £300 from Queen Mary's Needlework Guild, and, with no further financial help than a similar sum from the Officers' Association, has carried on for sixteen years and paid out over £19,000 in wages.
It is not a charity ; it gives work to the widows and dependants of officers who fell in the Great War, and to the dependants of the three Services. Material is provided ; the work is done at home, and is paid for monthly, whether it has been sold or not. In the shop at [address removed]may be seen the beautiful things that are made, of which a selection is sent out on approval to any address in London or the provinces.
Until now this shop, which is run entirely on business lines, has neither accepted donations nor invited subscriptions, but it has become impossible to continue without a larger working capital. Lady Montgomery-Massingberd, who is to make the appeal, is a member of the committee and wife of the Chief of the Imperial General Staff, and so directly in touch with the Services.
Contributions will be gratefully acknowledged, and should be addressed to [address removed]

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.
