: A Pianoforte Recital by EILEEN RALPH

Music suffered a great loss when Alban Berg , Schonbcrg's most brilliant and promising pupil, died last December. One might say that what Schönberg achieved in theory Berg successfully applied in practice. That Berg was one of the most significant figures in contemporary music was made apparent by his opera Wozzeck, which shows the working of a highly original and resourceful musical mind, whose powers of invention and imagination were matters of fact, not of opinion.
The piano sonata to be heard this afternoon was written in 1908, when the composer was 23 years of age. It was his first published work and shows that during the beginning the' composer possessed a highly original mind, and an individual style of writing for the piano.

: Shows from the Seaside

(A Series of Concert Party Broadcasts)
No. 5
The Fol-de-Rols from
Devonshire Park, Eastbourne
The Large Pier Pavilion, Llandudno
., White Rock Pavilion, Hastings
In this novelty broadcast admirers of the Fol-de-Rols will be able to hear this year's three companies in action, one after the other, from two seaside resorts in Sussex and one in North Wales. An interesting feature of the broadcast will be the part played in it by Harry Pepper. Listeners will hear him announcing at Eastbourne at the opening of the programme and they will hear him again at Hastings at the close. They may surmise that to be able to do this he will travel across country by car, but it may not occur to them that he can hear anything of the broadcast from Llandudno. He will be listening all the time, however, for the car will be fitted with a.radio set.
The Fol-de-Rols have a record of twenty-five years of entertaining. They first broadcast in May, 1934, and gave their first series on the air last year. This spring they gave another series of studio broadcasts before the studio company divided up to join the three companies that are to be heard this evening. '

: 'NIGHT SHIFT'

A broadcast from
Beachy Head Lighthouse
The view of Beachy Head lighthouse from the top of the cliff is familiar to nearly everyone who has been to Eastbourne. It looks near enough, lying away below, a few hundred yards out at sea, accessible across rocks at low tide. But this method of reaching and leaving it would be impracticable for those who man it. They go and come by motor-boat, an hour's run from
Eastbourne Pier. And that is the way . those concerned in the broadcast will go this even;ng.
It will be just upon dark, approaching high tide ; the lamps will be working and their beams will be floating across the sea. Listeners are to hear the normal routine of a lighthouse in action with its accompanying sounds-the turning of the lamps, the mewing of gulls, the lapping of the waves. The two keepers on duty-they have a two-months' spell and are isolated except for the telephone-will be heard at work and they will describe their life which, for the most part, is spent so near, and yet so far from, the land.

: Chamber Music VIVIEN LAMBELET (soprano) THE NORBERT WETHMAR PIANOFORTE QUINTET :

Norbert Wethmar (violin) ; Jenny Blank (violin) ; John Yewe Dyer (viola); Bram Martin (violoncello) ;
Wilfrid Parry (pianoforte) QUINTET
Paul Camille Chevillard , son of a distinguished 'cello and quartet player, became one of the most prominent of French conductors. In 1899 he succeeded Lamoureux who founded the famous Lamoureux Concerts in Paris, and solidly established his high reputation as an orchrestral conductor. But, unlike most conductors of today, he was also a successful composer and wrote some fine chamber music and other works, in a style owing something to Cesar Franck in spite of much originality. He founded his own Trio in 1895, in which combination he was pianist. VIVIEN LAMBELET QUINTET

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.
