: A VIOLIN RECITAL

by Joseph Pessac
Richard Jones (1680-1740), leader of the orchestra at Drury Lane Theatre in 1730, was a celebrated violinist and composer for the violin. He composed a book of ' Chamber Airs for a Violin and Thorough-Bass ' and a book of 'Six Suites of Lessons for a Violin with a Thorough-Bass for the harpsichord '.
Joseph Pessac , a South African by birth, is an experienced broadcaster to the Empire and was heard in the National programme on June 5. Born at Worcester, Cape Colony, he used as a boy to travel 110 miles to Capetown every Saturday, returning the same night. Then he won a bursary at the South African College .of Music.
On leaving the College, Pessac joined the Capetown Orchestra-then conducted by Leslie Heward -and came to England with them on their European tour. They went back to South Africa without him, for he stayed to study at the Royal Academy of Music and afterwards completed his studies with Sevcik and Hubay in Prague and Budapest. Pessac has since toured in Czechoslovakia, Italy, and France.

: PROMENADE CONCERT

Part 1 from Queen's Hall, London
(Sole Lessees, Messrs. Chappell and Co.,Ltd.)

(Ninety Players)
Leader, Paul Beard
Conducted by SIR HENRY J. WOOD
Delius's Violin Concerto was first performed by the Royal Philharmonic Society in January, 1919, about two-and-a-half years after its completion. It is dedicated to Albert Sammons , who was responsible for overhauling and editing the solo violin part for the composer. The work is in one continuous movement, which, however, falls into three well-defined sections in contrasting tempos. In the presentation and method of working out the thematic material it is typical of the composer's highly individual style.
' Death and Transfiguration ' is one of the earliest of Strauss's symphonic poems. It was completed in 1889, when the composer was only twenty-five. Originally, the score was prefaced by a poem of Alexander Ritter, which was, however, written after Strauss's music, and therefore may be considered as a kind of commentary on the music.
' Death and Transfiguration' is divided into four sections : (1) the sick man lies in his bed and dreams of ' childhood's golden day' ; (2) then comes a fierce, delirious fight with Death. Once again there follows stillness; (3) the dying man reviews all his past life. At length there comes a briefer, fiercer struggle, in which Death strikes its final blow; (4) the stillness of death is succeeded by the Transfiguration.
Tickets can be obtained from [address removed], and usual agents. Prices (including
Entertainments Tax) : 7s. 6d., 6s., 5s. (reserved), 3s. (unreserved), promenade (payment at doors only) 2s.

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.
