: DVORAK: PIANO QUINTET IN A. OP. 81

1 Allegro ma non tanto. 2 Dumka: Andante con moto. 3 Furiant: Molto vivace. 4 Finale: Allegro played by The Kutcher String Quartet:
Samuel Kutcher (violin)
Max Saalpeter (violin)
Raymond Jeremy (viola)
Douglas Cameron (violoncello) and Frank Merrick (pianoforte)
Dvorak's Piano Quintet was written in 1887. It is one of the finest of his chamber works : ' an absolute revelation ', says Otakar Sourek , ' of the personality of Dvorak, a man apparently locked within himself, moving only in the sphere of divine beauty, now plunged in gloomy meditation, his vision lost in eternity, now smiling brightly, bubbling over with happiness and breaking forth in outbursts of the frankest joy. Such a spirit was Dvorak, and thus he appears in this quintet-one of the freshest and most characteristic creations of his genius.' The composer makes brilliant use of Czech dance forms, notably the ' Furiant ' in the scherzo movement.

: AMERICAN COMMENTARY

A weekly commentary on American Affairs
Raymond Gram Swing
(From America)
Raymond Swing has become known to listeners in this country as an ideal commentator on American affairs. An outstanding American journalist whose views on political developments carry weight with his own countrymen, he has also a thorough knowledge of the British viewpoint.
Although great improvements
'have since been made in the conditions of transatlantic reception, the quality of a broadcast that has come across the Atlantic and been picked' up for re-transmission here cannot be expected always to equal that of a studio show.

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
