: A Sonata Recital

JOSEPH SLATER (flute)
MARIE KORCHINSKA (harp)
There were two Marcellos in Venice at the end of the seventeenth and the first half of the eighteenth centuries, and though both were outstanding figures of their time, it is the younger, Benedetto, who is best remembered now. There is a monument to him in the Church of San Giuseppe of Brescia, and the inscription calls him statesman, musician, and poet. But he was a good many other things besides. Music was his diversion, not his calling, but he was so eminent a violinist and composer as to leave his mark for all time on the course it was to take. His own music for the church and the concert room entitle him to a place of honour among the lesser classical composers.
Johann Baptist Krumpholtz was born near Prague about 1745, and died in 1790. He studied under his father, who was bandmaster in a French regiment, and when a young man he became famous as a harpist and composer. In 1773 Krumpholtz became a member of Prince Esterhazy's chapel and during the three years that he remained there he studied composition under Haydn.
Krumpholtz finally settled in Paris, where he became one of the leading teachers and virtuosos. His wife was also a harpist, and it is said that she was even a finer player than her husband. Unfortunately she was unfaithful to Krumpholtz who drowned himself in the Seine.

' The Whole Meaning of Thanksgiving
Day'
Mr. and Mrs. CÉSAR SAER CHINGER
' Thanksgiving ' is the day of days in America, second only to Christmas as a feast day. It is a legal holiday, and is always held on the last Thursday in November. The first ' Thanksgiving ' was held in the seventeenth century to celebrate the first harvest of the Pilgrim Fathers. After the service the Pilgrim Mothers busied themselves with a Thanksgiving Dinner, and pumpkin pie and turkey are Thanksgiving dishes to this day.
This afternoon Cesar Saerchinger ,
European Director of the Columbia Broadcasting System, and his wife, are to speak of this national event in their own country.

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.
