: A PIANOFORTE RECITAL

by James Ching
A Bach Programme
Toccata and Fugue in C minor
Prelude, Fugue, and Allegro in E flat
James Chihg began his musical studies at the Royal Academy of Music at the age of seven, taking piano under Tobias Matthay and composition under Frederick Corder. ' At eleven years of age ', said Mr. Matthay, ' he played the Bach Fantasia and Fugue like a virtuoso.' In his seventeenth year Mr. Ching took his A.R.C.O., won the La Fontaine Prize, and gained an open organ scholarship at the Royal College of Music, where some months later he took his F.R.C.O. and won the Turpin Prize. At the Royal College of Music he studied under Stanford and Parratt until 1920, when he went to Oxford to take the degrees of Mus.Bac. and B.A. In 1925 Mr. Ching made his debut as a solo pianist, giving recitals and later appearing as soloist at the Proms. Of late years, however, Mr. Ching has devoted himself chiefly to teaching.

: THE CINEMA

4—' The Actor's Job'
Raymond Massey
Acting for the cinema and acting for the stage present quite different problems, and nobody can know better about them than an actor who has excelled at both. Raymond Massey-a leading figure in the theatre of today as both actor and producer-was born in Canada, made his first appearance on the professional stage at the Everyman Theatre, London, in 1932-a theatre he was to manage four years later, producing a number of plays. Since 1932 he has appeared in a succession of films, among them The Old Dark House, The Scarlet Pimpernel, Things to Come, and Dreaming Lips. He will describe some of the peculiar difficulties of playing a part in front of camera and microphone.

: THE BBC ORCHESTRA

(Section E)
Led by Laurance Turner
Conductor, Sir Adrian Boult
Adila Fachiri (violin)
' Ingrid's Lament ' forms the Prelude to Act 2 of Ibsen's play. The music opens with a four-bar strongly accented phrase (allegro furioso), : followed by three bars of chords (andante) for trumpets and horns over a drum roll which suggests Ingrid's anger. After these seven bars have been repeated the strings announce a broad and sombre - melody, denoting Ingrid's sorrow, which is worked up to a climax. A return to the opening furioso section < rounds off the piece.
The ' Arabian Dance ' is used in Act 4. Peer's wanderings bring him to an Arab camp, where he poses as a prophet. He is enchanted with the graceful beauty of the chieftain's daughter, Anitra, who with her maidens sings and dances to him. One of these dances is the Arabian Dance, the wood-wind playing the theme while the strings, brass, and percussion reiterate the rhythm.
Act 5 describes how Peer, now an old man, is on board a ship that is % ploughing its way through a mighty storm to the Norwegian coast. ' The ' Return of Peer Gynt ' is a fine piece : of tone painting that forms a back- ground to the storm.
'Solveig's Song ' is introduced in a short episode towards the end of Act 4. The scene is a hut in the Norwegian forest where Solveig is awaiting Peer's return. She is sitting at her spinning-wheel and she sings this wistful air, which is delicately scored for flutes, clarinets, horns, harp, and strings.

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.
