: BOCCHERINI-l

Chamber Music played by The Kutcher String Quartet:
Samuel Kutcher (violin) ; Max Saal peter (violin) ; Raymond Jeremy (viola) ; Douglas Cameron (violoncello)
Quartet in C
1 Allegro con moto. 2 Minuetto. 3 Adagio. 4 Finale: Allegro giusto
Boccherini was one of the foremost 'cellists of the eighteenth century, and also a composer of immense industry. It used to be said that he was a fountain of which it was only necessary to turn on the tap to produce a stream of music. He left no fewer than 467 instrumental works, including twenty symphonies, all of them marked by simple, natural melodiousness and by a dignified and courtly style. He and Haydn had a mutual regard, and the relation of Boccherini's music to that of the more famous master was characterised in the saying that ' Boccherini was the wife of Haydn '.
Further programmes in this series will be broadcast as follows: Tuesday (Regional, 9.40), Wednesday (Regional, 8.0), Thursday (National,
8.0), and Friday (National, 10.0).

: ' During the Interval'

Fables of La Fontaine
A reading from the translation of Edward Marsh , by H. S. Ede
Tonight, and again next Monday at the same time, a number of La Fontaine's fables will be read from translations made by a man of letters who must have been secretary to more distinguished statesmen than any other man in modern times. Sir Edward Marsh-he was knighted in February of this year-is now private secretary to Mr. Malcolm MacDonald and is probably best known for his secretarial services to Mr. Winston Churchill and Mr. J. H. Thomas. He is an inveterate firstnighter, published a 'Memoir of Rupert Brooke ' in 1918, and his translations of ' Fables of La Fontaine' in 1931. They are exceedingly amusing and freely adapted to everyday speech. Those that are to be read tonight are The Young Widow', ' The Lark and the Farmer ', ' The Married Couple and the Burglar ', ' The Town Mouse and the Country Mouse 'The Fox and the Stork', and The Old Maid's Marriage '.

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.
