: MUSIC AND THE ORDINARY LISTENER

Herbert Howells
The series of talks ' Music and the Ordinary Listener ' is continued this evening with the first of six talks by Herbert Howells devoted to ' The Modern Problem'. He will begin with a review of the complex state of affairs in contemporary music-the causes and antecedents of the ' new ' music. He will go on to discuss the new aspects of melody, harmony, rhythm, and tonality. Examples of the music of Schonberg, Berg, Bartok, Hindemith, Prokofiev, Walton, Holst, and Stravinsky will be played and discussed. Finally, Mr. Howells will put forward that the search for repose and beauty in contemporary music can yield further ' reconciliation ' if made with an open mind. It is paradoxically true that, though the strongly contrapuntal bias of contemporary music has often put a limit upon our receptive powers, it is in the new counterpoint that an unexpected beauty can be found.

: A PIANOFORTE RECITAL

by Charles Lynch
Rachmaninov's First Piano Sonata was written in 1907 when the composer was residing in Dresden. During the same year Rachmaninov also completed his Symphony No. 2, in E minor, and Piano Concerto No. 3, in D minor. The Sonata has been called a pendant to the E minor Symphony in that its mood of hope is an answer to the latter's mood of despair. Furthermore, there are certain similarities in the thematic material and design of both works. The Sonata is. a work of large dimensions, almost symphonic in style, and is full of magnificent writing for the piano.

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.
