Travel Talk
' Eastern and Northern Europe'
2—' The Donets Coal-field'
ALLAN MONKHOUSE
This afternoon Allan Monkhouse will take listeners in an aeroplane over the most easterly part of Europe. The journey will start from Rostov-on-Don and first travel westwards over the huge works which the Soviet Government has made for the manufacture of agricultural machinery. Industrialisation on a large scale is a striking feature of Russia since the Revolution, and this microphone flight will give an excellent idea of the vast changes that have taken place in the last few years. The Donets area itself, as Allan Monkhouse will point out in his capacity of guide, is very important because it is an agricultural area in the middle of which are large mineral deposits.

: THE ISIDORE SCHWILLER STRING SEXTET

CECIL BAUMER (pianoforte)
The Isidore Schwiller Sextet has been on the air since May of last year. Essentially a microphone team, it consists of three violins, a viola, 'cello, and double bass. (For some musical items, however, an extra viola takes the place of a violin.) The leader is Isidore Schwiller , the well-known violinist, who is a member of the London Symphony Orchestra. He has done a good deal of solo work in the past-it was he, for instance, who gave a first performance at Queen's Hall of Lalo's Concerto Russe-and for some time he was leader and conductor of the old Carl Rosa Opera Company Orchestra.

Miriam Licette spent her early years in Singapore and then came to England to be educated at Lowther College. Her next move was to Paris, where she studied singing under Mathilde Mar chesi, after which she went on to Milan to study Italian opera. In Rome Mme. Licette made her debut in the title role of Madame Butterfly with great success. On her return to London, she appeared at an orchestral concert under Sir Thomas Beecham , who engaged her for his season of opera in English at the Shaftesbury Theatre. Mme Licette's first broadcast performance was in 1922.

: Chamber Music THE REGINALD PAUL PIANOFORTE QUARTET:

George Stratton (violin); Watson Forbes (viola); John Moore (violoncello) ; Reginald Paul (pianoforte)
Schumann's Piano Quartet in E flat was composed in 1843, the same year in which the Piano Quintet appeared. Richard Aldrich points out that this genial and romantic work ' owes its inspiration to the same impulse that urged Schumann to the Quintet; the method is the same, the technique shows the same manner of approach as well as the same masterly skill ; the cast of thought is similar ... But it deals, on the whole, with a slighter order of ideas ; the flight of its inspiration is not on the whole, quite so bold or so high. It insinuates its way into the affections of the music lover rather than imposes itself with the irresistible sweep and energy of the quintet.'
Arnold Foster, one of the younger British composers, is a Yorkshireman. He studied composition at the Royal College of Music with Vaughan Williams. His works include ' Pianoforte Concerto on Country Dance Tunes ' (which has been broadcast on several occasions), ' Autumn Idyll' for small orchestra, ' Suite for Strings on English Folk Airs', two volumes of Manx Folk Songs and various arrangements of English and Manx Folk Songs for unaccompanied chorus. Mr. Foster has also made a great many arrangements of folk dance tunes for The English Folk Dance Society. He succeeded Gustav Hoist as Musical Director of Morley College, and is a well-known choral conductor and a music master at Westminster School.
Bliss's Piano Quartet in A minor is, as its opus number would imply, an early work. It was first performed while Bliss was on active service during the war.

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.

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.
