: A Sonata Recital

ANTOINETTE RUBBRA (violin)
EDMUND RUBBRA (pianoforte)
Edmund Rubbra was born at Northampton in 1901. He left school at fourteen, began to work for his living as a clerk, and devoted his spare time to composing and playing the piano.
Then Cyril Scott got to know of his work and gave him a lesson every fortnight. The result was that at the age of nineteen Rubbra won a scholarship at Reading University where he studied composition with Holst and piano with Howard-Jones. After a year, Rubbra won a three-year scholarship for composition at the Royal College of Music. He has since toured Italy as a pianist and given recitals in Paris. Furthermore, he has distinguished himself as a composer of chamber music and songs of rare sensitiveness and individuality.
His wife, Antoinette Rubbra , with whom he is playing this afternoon, has also distinguished herself as a violinist.

Beethoven
Early Chamber Music played by THE REGINALD PAUL PIANOFORTE
QUARTET:
George Stratton (violin) ; Watson Forbes (viola); John Moore (violoncello) ; Reginald Paul (pianoforte)
Pianoforte Quartet No. 3 in C
1. Allegro vivace; 2. Adagio con espressione ; 3. Rondo : Allegro
Most of the great romantic composers of the nineteenth century wrote two or three quartets for piano, violin, viola and 'cello. In most cases they were works of maturity and, as such, show the rich possibilities of this instrumental combination. Beethoven's three Piano Quartets, however, are. early works and, though containing much charming music, are to some extent imitative and experimental in style.
Vincent d'lndy points out that;
' during the first years of serious study under the guidance of excellent Viennese masters, Beethoven meditated, wrote little, and contented himself with preparing-with what tribulation ! -for the production of his Opus I. But it must not therefore be concluded that the years spent at Bonn were: barren. Like Dittersdorf, Mozart, and many other musicians of his time, he began to compose in his earliest years, knowing nothing of composition. From the sketches of three quartets for piano, violin, viola and violoncello, dating from his fifteenth year, to the variations for piano and violin on a theme from Mozart's Nozze di Figaro-written shortly before Op. I-he had elaborated numerous compositions.'

: This Time Last Year

'Sailing on the East Coast'
BERNARD FERGUSSON
Here is the first talk in a series covering the holiday problem, and listeners may perhaps glean from the various speakers some idea for a holiday they have never spent before. This evening Bernard Fergusson , a subaltern in the Black Watch, and a keen yachts-man, is to describe some of the thrills he has got out of sailing. There was one holiday he spent voyaging on a borrowed yacht from Milford Haven to the Clyde, and another when he and some friends hired a small boat on the river Crouch and did a lot of sailing up and down the east coast, and met with adventures, too.

: A Recital of Songs by Alexander Gretchaninov

TATIANA MAKUSHINA (soprano)
THE COMPOSER at the Pianoforte
Over the golden fields
Like an angel of God serene
The Dreary Steppe (Op. 5, No. i) My Homeland (Op. 1, No. 4) The Flower (Op. 93, No. 3) Death
Snowflakes (Op. 47, No. i) Snowdrop (Op. 47, No. 9) Rain (Op. 66, No. 2)
, Rainbow (Op. 66, No. 3)
Unlike most of the better-known Russian composers, Gretchaninov was the son of poor-indeed, semi-illiterate
-parents and he had a hard struggle against both poverty and paternal opposition to his musical career. Born in 1864, he studied in Moscow under Kashkin, Arensky and Taneiev (1881-1890), and in St. Petersburg under Rimsky-Korsakov (1890-1893). It will be observed from these dates that Gretchaninov was late in maturing.
The best known of all his songs, ' The Dreary Steppe ', was one of his earliest ; but he was nearly thirty when he wrote it. He has composed music of all types, but he is known principally for his songs and ehurch music.
Tatiana Makushina , who since 1922 has given many such Gretchaninov recitals, accompanied by the composer, is singing a thoroughly representative selection from his work.
One of Gretchaninov's most striking traits is his love of children. He has composed a great deal of music for or about them. Thus, ' Snowflakes ' and ' The Snowdrop ' come from a cycle of ' Songs from the World of Childhood ', and ' Rain ' and ' The Rainbow ' are from a set of Six Children's Songs '.

: A Festival of Folk Music

A New Pot-pourri by Julius Buerger
THE B B C CHORUS
(Section D) and THE B B C THEATRE ORCHESTRA
Leader, Montague Brearley
Conducted by STANFORD ROBINSON
Music knows no national frontiers, yet folk music almost invariably is as characteristic as a flag. Fascinating music it is, too, full of melody and rhythm, and expressive of the soil and the joys and pains of love. This evening' Dr. Buerger has collected the folk music of eleven countries : England, Italy, Germany, Czechoslovakia, France
: Poland, Norway, Spain, Austria, Russia and Hungary, and he has welded this medley of tunes into an hour's potpourri. An interesting feature of this broadcast is that the songs will be sung in the language of their origin.

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.
