: A Sonata Recital

David Martin (violin)
Myers Foggin (pianoforte)
Debussy's Sonata for violin and piano, the third of a projected set of six sonatas for various instruments, was the last work he completed. It was written in the winter of 1916-17, when the composer had already been suffering for more than a year from the incurable disease from which he died early in 1918. III as he was, Debussy played the piano part in the first performance in Paris (May, 1917), with Gaston Poulet as the violinist. It was the composer's last appearance in Paris as a performer. He himself wrote of this Sonata as 'one of those countless little intimate tragedies that overwhelm you without making any more noise than a rose shedding its petals, leaving the rest of the world at peace'.

: MEREDITH WILLSON

Music Director of the National Broadcasting Company of America
(Western Division) conducting the Augmented BBC Variety
Orchestra
Meredith Willson arrived in England on a visit a fortnight ago and has accepted the BBC's invitation to conduct the Augmented BBC Variety Orchestra tonight before going up to Scotland to spend a few days of his holiday there.
He is not unknown to listeners in this country, for his orchestra, playing from the NBC's San Francisco studio, has been heard in this country under his conductorship in a ' Five Hours Back ' programme.
Not yet 33, Meredith Willson has been a musician since he was 1 years old. At 16 he was playing under Sousa, at 19 under Toscanini and other great conductors of the New York Philharmonic.
His name is best known in connection with ' Chiffon Jazz', for which he is famous. These arrangements have been described as ' a unique presentation of jazz, not as the blaring, unmusical creature she has been called by her critics, but a delicate creation in rhythm, with point and counterpoint clearly etched against a filmy veil of interlocking harmonies '.

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.

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.
