Born in London, York Bowen, whose suite, ' At the Play ', is to be played this morning, studied composition and the pianoforte at the Royal Academy of Music. Long ago recognised as a pianist of brilliant attainments, he is also a gifted composer. His own instrument has naturally been generously treated with three concertos and many smaller pieces, but he has done notable work for the orchestra, too.

The ears serve two purposes. First of all, they detect the waves in the air around us, turning them, with the help of the brain, into sound. Secondly, they help us to balance our bodies. How the ears manage to do this will be explained in today's talk.

: A PIANOFORTERECITAL

by Donald Hargreaves
(From Manchester)
Beethoven's pianoforte sonata in E major, Op. 109, is dedicated to Maximiliane Brentano, the niece of Bettina von Arnim , whom the composer met in Vienna in 1810. Composed in 1820, it belongs to what is known as Beethoven's third period, and many qualities of the music anticipate the romantic inventions of his successors.
The slow movement of this sonata is particularly beautiful, and it has been described by Sir Henry Hadow as being derived from ' some ideal world beyond the heavens

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.
