THE STRATTON STRING QUARTET: George Stratton (violin) ; Carl Taylor (violin) ; Watson Forbes (viola),
John Moore (violoncello)
One of the greatest tragedies in the history of French music was the death of Ernest Chausson (1855-1899) through a bicycle accident at his home at Limay, Seine-et-Oise. Like many other musicians, he began his career as a lawyer, but at the age of twenty-five he gave up law for music. His first move was to enter Massenet's composition class at the Paris Conservatoire, and he also studied with Cesar Franck for three years. From Massenet he learnt to write with the utmost purity of texture and from Cesar Franck he derived his richness of harmonic colour and deep 'romantic feeling.
These qualities are essentially characteristic of Chausson's Concerto in D for piano, violin, and string quartet, which is not a concerto in the real sense of the word, but more a piece of chamber music for sextet.

: 'If— Napoleon II had been Madame Permon's Son'

HELEN SIMPSON
When still a young artillery officer Napoleon Bonaparte married Josephine Beauharnais , who was unable to bear him children. Childlessness mattered little to the young general, but enormously to the Emperor, the would-be founder of a dynasty. For the sake of an heir Napoleon divorced Josephine and married an Austrian archduchess, gaining a faithless ally who turned against him in his hour of need and a son too young to act as his father's deputy when such a deputy might have saved the dynasty.
If the young artillery officer had married a different woman in the first place, the history of Europe might have been altered.

INA SOUEZ (soprano) Cherubini was bom in 1760 at Florence.
According to his own statement, he began ' to learn music at six and composition at nine '. When he was sixteen he had already composed a quantity of church music, including three Masses. An intensive study of old Italian polyphonic music occupied his attention for the next few years. Then he turned to opera and for fourteen years steadily wrote works that brought him fame throughout Europe.
In 1788 Cherubini made Paris his home. He directed the Italian Opera, became an ' Inspector of Studies ' at the Conservatoire and finally succeeded to the directorship. As a teacher, he exercised enormous power in Paris. He died in 1842. Among' Cherubini's instrumental works is a number of symphonies, of which the one in D is a good example of his adherence to the classical style.

: THE WEEK'S GOOD CAUSE

An appeal on behalf of THE CITY OF LONDON MATERNITY HOSPITAL, by JAMES PATERSON , Chairman
After 185 years' work for poor mothers and their babies, the City of London Maternity Hospital needs help to enable it to keep abreast of modem requirements. Plant and equipment installed thirty years ago are wearing out and are very costly to replace, while improvements in technique and curative methods have involved additional staff. The Hospital's difficulties will be further increased by the extended period of training under the new Midwives' Bill.
Contributions will be gratefully acknowledged, and should be addressed to [address removed]

: A Chopin Recital

by MOISEIWITSCH
Two Preludes
1. In D minor Op. 28 No. 24; 2. In B flat Op. 28 No. 21
Sonata in B flat minor, Op. 35
1. Grave-Doppio movimento ; 2. Scherzo—Più lento ; 3. Marche funèbre ; 4. Finale : Presto
Benno Moiseiwitsch was only nine years old when he won the Rubinstein prize for piano playing, as a pupil at the Imperial Academy of Music in his native city of Odessa. For five years more he continued his studies there, going at the age of fourteen to Leschetizky in Vienna. He made his first appearance in England four years later at Reading, and when, in the following spring (1909), he played at a Queen's Hall Concert in London, his success was immediate. Since then he has won a distinguished place among the foremost pianists of today.
A Fine Sonata
Chopin composed his Sonata in B flat minor in 1840. He is often characterised as a composer of essentially effeminate music, because of its preponderance of grace, gentleness, and of a certain limpid sentiment. That he could be masculine in the sense of constructing music on a big style and of expressing powerful and turbulent emotions is evidenced by this fine sonata, which for imagination and constructive skill is one of the finest specimens of nineteenth century romantic music.

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.
