: A Pianoforte Recital by DOROTHY FOLKARD

Mozart's Clavier Sonata in B flat (K. 281) is one of a set of six dating from about 1777. Mozart often mentions them in letters written during his expedition to Paris the following year, and it seems probable that they were written not long before he set out.

: A Sonata Recital

FLORENCE HOOTON (violoncello)
DOROTHY MANLEY (pianoforte)
Beethoven's A major Sonata for 'cello and piano was published in April, 1809, at the same time as the Fifth and Sixth Symphonies. Written at the height of Beethoven's maturity, it is one of his finest chamber works. Its general character of good-humourcJ dignity is relieved only by the scherzo. In a work remarkable throughout for sheer loveliness of sound the chief subjects of the first movement an 1 finale are outstanding. The finaie combines Beethoven's characteristic nobility and tenderness with an almost Mozartian light-heartedness ; the return of the chief subject is particularly memorable.

Eva Turner is well known to listeners. She is one of the few British singers who have won fame abroad in opera. Bom at Oldham, Miss Turner lived most of her early life in Bristol; later, she went to the Royal Academy of Music to study singing, then joined the chorus of the Carl Rosa Opera Company, became one of its principals, and finally left England for Italy, where she sang with great success at various opera houses, including La Scala, Milan. Since that time, her name has been acclaimed in every European country and in the United States.

: THE FAMOUS CHARACTER ACTOR BRANSBY WILLIAMS

in a selection of his popular studies including
' The Liverpool Landing Stage '
Produced by Ernest Longstaffe
Tonight one of the finest character actors of all time is to give his latest impersonation-that of a humorous old man ; next he will do an item founded on an American story, ' Jim Bludso ' ; and then he is to broadcast one of the most effective features he has ever given.
The noises of the docks ; all sorts of conditions of men and women. Some sad at the departure of someone near and dear-some happy at the return of a dear one. And Bransby Williams will impersonate a man leaving for Canada to try his luck and trying to buck his girl up ; a Scot who won't have his bag carried, never mind why ; an American arriving at lil' ol' Liverpool ; a real Johnny chap ; a porter ; a lounger; a tripper.....
Humour and tears go to make up
' Liverpool Landing Stage', and handled by Bransby Williams , it should be a slice of real life.

(Section C)
Led by LAURANCE TURNER
Conducted by CLARENCE RAYBOULD
Florent Schmitt was born in Lorraine within a few paces of the pre-War frontier, w-hich may seem to account for the Teutonic breadth of conception which combines with a typically exquisite French finish that characterises all his work. Born in 1870, he gained a Prix de Rome in 1900 and spent it in various parts of Europe, thereby adding to his other qualities a sense of cosmopolitanism. But with all this, his music is not known in England with the familiarity that his great reputation in France would appear to warrant.

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.
