'Money'
K. C. BOSWELL
The word ' money ' has many meanings. For instance, it can be a metal coin or a promise written on a bit of paper. In each case the value depends on confidence. It is on this confidence that K. C. Boswell will talk this afternoon. Listeners will hear something about the way in which confidence-and the lack of it-in money has considerably affected our prosperity in the past.

: THE BBC WELSH ORCHESTRA

Leader, Frank Thomas
Conducted by REGINALD REDMAN
In 1872 Bizet composed a charming series of twelve little pieces for piano duet, which was entitled Jeux d'enfants.
Though conceived with the utmost simplicity of melody and harmony, these pieces are delicately pictorial. The music is about children rather than for children. During the following year Bizet took five of the pieces and scored them for orchestra.

DOROTHY D'ORSAY (contralto)
THE NEW ENGLISH Trio : Gwynneth Trotter (violin); JamesWhitehead (violoncello) ; Hetty Bolton (pianoforte)
Mendelssohn wrote two piano trios, in D minor and C minor respectively, which are among the best of his chamber works. No. I, in D minor, which was composed in 1839, is full of charming melodies that are developed in a characteristic neat and ingenious manner. Reviewing this work, Schumann said : ' This is the master-trio c.t our time, even as Beethoven's in B flat and D and Schubert's in E flat were the masterpieces of their day; it is an exceedingly fine composition which will gladden our grandchildren and great-grandchildren for many years to come '.
DOROTHY D'ORSAY
Von ewiger Liebe
Wenn Du nur zuweilen lachelst
Brahms Dein blaues
Auge Treue Liebe dauert !ange
Brahms's song ' Wenn du nur zuweilen lächelst' is the second of eight songs published in 1871 under the title of ' Songs and Ballads by G. F. Daumer '. Brahms thought highly of Daumer's gifts as a poet-he set nearly sixty of his poems. On his way from Nuremburg to Karlsruhe in 1872 Brahms stopped at Wurzburg to make the acquaintance of Daumer.
Max Friedlaender tells us that after some trouble he found the street and the house, and was considerably surprised when a little shrivelled old man was introduced to him as the German Hafis. Brahms, who in the course of conversation discovered that Daumer knew nothing of him and his songs, inquired jokingly after the many lovers of whom Daumer had painted such glowing portraits in his poems. The old man laughed quietly, and called from the adjoining room a little woman as old, as tiny, and as wrinkled as himself, of whom he said ' This is the only woman I have ever loved-my wife'.

: A Pianoforte Recital by Clifford Curzon

In 1802-3 Beethoven was at work on his Symphony No. 2 in D and the first two Sonatas of the group of three comprising Opus 31. The Sonata No. 2 in D minor is undoubtedly the finest of the three; indeed, it is one of the best of the whole thirty-two. It was said to be a special favourite of the master himself, and it was frequently played by him in public.
Clifford Curzon was born in 1907, and began his studies at the age of eleven under Charles Reddie, who was a pupil of Stavenhagen at the Royal Academy of Music. Mr. Curzon won the Potter Exhibition, the Thalberg Scholarship, and several other important honours. On leaving the college he studied in Berlin under Artur Schnabel. He gave up his professorship at the Royal Academy of Music for two years for further study and travel abroad. He had a great success in Berlin in 1928. He toured Germany in 1929, giving chamber music concerts as well as orchestral, and on his return to England the following year took up his professorship again at the Royal Academy of Music. But in 1931 he gave it up owing to his extensive concert engagements. In 1930 he married Lucille Wallace, the famous harpsichordist.

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.
