Concerto Grosso in B minor. No. 23 - Handel
3.32 Pianoforte concerto in A minor - Schumann
1 Allegro affettuoso. 2 Intermezzo. 3 Allegro vivace
(Soloist, Jean Norris)
The first movement of Schumann's Piano Concerto, composed in 1841, was intended at first to stand alone as a fantasy. Four years later the other two movements were added to complete the concerto as we know it now. It is one of the finest piano concertos in the repertoire, and it contains all those features that a good concerto should: deep musical feeling, virtuosity, and contrast.
4.2 Symphony in E minor - Rachmaninoff
1 Largo - Allegro moderate. 2 Allegro molto. 3 Adagio. 4 Allegro vivace - Adagio
Rachmaninoff has little in common with the Russian nationalist composers for, like Tchaikovsky, he is far more Teutonic in outlook. His music is characterised by sweeping and expressive melodies of a romantic kind, vitality of rhythm, and a masterly use of rich orchestral colour, which qualities are to be found in abundance in the E minor Symphony. This hne work was first performed in England at the Leeds Festival in 1910 under the baton of the composer.

: MUSIC AND MEMORY

Lilias Mackinnon
Lilias Mackinnon was born in Aber deen. She was the only member of her family to show any marked gifts for music. After having studied the piano under a local teacher, she was sent to the Royal Academy of Music, where she worked for several years with Carlo Albanesi. In 19)6 she won the Macfarren Gold Medal.
During the next few years Miss
Mackinnon gradually made a name for herself as a teacher and concert
-artist. Her name became linked with the music of Scriabin, of which she made a deep study.
For many years now Miss Mackinnon has specialised in memorisation in music, on which subject she has lectured at) over the country and taught according to her own method. Her talk this evening should be of great interest to musical [isteners.

: ROUND THE FOL DE ROLS

from the Pier Pavilion, Sandown, Isle of Wight, the Large Pier Pavilion, Llandudno, and the White
Rock Pavilion, Hastings
Introduced by Harry S. Pepper from the side of the stage at Hastings
Listeners heard in the spring three studio broadcasts from the Fol-de-Rols before they went off to join their different companies, which are appearing this year at Sandown, Llandudno, and Hastings. Tonight listeners are to hear the three companies behind their own footlights.
An unusual feature will be a burlesque in wmch different characters will be played by artists in the different towns, and listeners will thus hear three shows—many miles apart — broadcast simultaneously. Fifty artists wit! take part.
The FoI-de-Rols, or Follies of Royle (George Royle is joint proprietor with Greatrex Newman ) have been entertaining for 27 years, and have almost settlers' rights in several towns in Britain.
At Hastings, for instance, where they have entertained regularly for twelve years, the company is as well known as the name Fol-de-Rols is well known on the air. They have been broadcasting since 1934.

: HAMMERKLAVIER SONATA

in B Hat. Op. 106, by Beethoven
1 Allegro. 2 Scherzo (assai vivace). 3 Adagio sostenuto. 4 Largo, leading to Allegro risoluto (fuga a tre voei, con alcune licenze) played by Louis Kentner (pianoforte)
Beethoven's Hammerklavier Sonata in B nat is one of the most difficult sonatas for the piano ever written. Finished in 1819, it was the result of nearly two years' work, during which time he was a)so at work on the Ninth Symphony. Indeed, as regards subject-matter and structure it has been compared with this symphony ; it might well be described as a symphony for piano, for it is almost orchestra) in conception. Actua))y Weingartner has made an orchestra) version of this sonata.
White at work on the B nat
Sonata, Beethoven, in a tetter to Czerny, said : ' Just now I am working at a sonata which sha!) be my greatest.' For an adequate interpretation of it the pianist must possess not onty a deep understanding of the composer's genius, but great technical command and physicat energy.

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.
