Led by Laurance Turner
Conducted by Arthur Collingwood
Arthur Collingwood is Dean of the Faculty of Music at the University of Saskatchewan. He was for many years actively associated with music in Scotland, having been Lecturer on Music at Mareschal College, University of Aberdeen, and conductor of the Aberdeen Choral Union. He visited Canada to adjudicate at various Canadian musical competition festivals in 1929 and was invited to become the Carnegie Professor of Music at the University of Saskatchewan in 1931. Mr. Collingwood is the founder and conductor of the Saskatoon Symphony Orchestra, which gave eight concerts during the past season. (Incidentally, the personnel of the orchestra includes no fewer than ten nationalities.) Mr. Collingwood returns to Europe every summer and makes his vacation a real busman's holiday, hearing and seeing as much as possible of musical activities in the Old World.

The Lener String Quartet:
Jeno Lener (violin) ; Joseph Smilo vits (violin) ; Sandor Roth (viola) ;
Imre Hartmann (violoncello)
It is now generally acknowledged that Haydn was a ' 'nationalist' composer, as definitely a Croatian nationalist as Dvorak was a Bohemian nationalist. The opening theme of the finale of this Quartet in C is practically note for note the same as a well-known kolo tune-the kolo being a Slavonic dance measure.
This Quartet, one of six written in 1781, dedicated to the Russian Grand Duke Paul , and hence known as ' the Russian Quartets', has been nicknamed ' The Bird ' and it is certainly true that the opening of the first movement and the trio of the scherzo suggest the twittering of birds.
Educated at the Budapest School of Music, where he has been composition professor for the last thirty years, Kodaly has shared with Bartok the leadership of the modern Magyar nationalist movement. In 1905 Bartok and Kodaly began to collect and study Hungarian folk music-the true peasant music, not the music of the Hungarian gypsies which had long been accepted as ' Hungarian '-and this pre-occupation with folk music is reflected in Kodaly's first String Quartet (composed 1908-10).
In 1905 W. W. Cobbett instituted the first of his series of chamber music competitions, 'mainly designed ' (in his own words) ' to bring to light the talents of young British composers and to encourage the occasional adoption of a short form of ensemble music ... The subject of the first competition was the composition of a " Phantasy " in the form of a string quartet, the piece to be of short duration and performed without a break, but, if the composer desired, to consist of different sections varying in tempo and metre '. There were sixty-seven competitors, and the first prize went to W. Y. Hurlstone. The second prize, however, was won by Frank Bridge with the Quartet that concludes this evening's programme.

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.
