The Blech String Quartet:
Harry Blech (violin)
Edward Silverman (violin)
Douglas Thomson (viola)
William Pleeth (violoncello)
Brahms's two String Quartets, in C minor and A minor, comprising Op. 51, were both written in 1873 and first performed by the Joachim Quartet. Comparing the A minor Quartet with its companion, Dr. Hermann Deiters points out that in its feminine tenderness and plaintive charm it stands in marked contrast to it. ' In the first movement of this Quartet the principal subject is simply but clearly worked out, while the second theme expresses a deep, touching tenderness. The melodious slow movement overflows with hope and resignation and breathes a tone of earnest meditation, afterwards broken into, in the scherzo, by an r outburst of quick, pulsating vitality.
The last movement is full of energy and newly-acquired confidence, so that a searching enquiry into the spirit of the work will disclose the four movements joined in a poetic unity.'

(Section C)
Led by Marie Wilson
Conducted by Trevor Harvey
Faure's Pelleas and Melisande suite consists of the preludes to the four acts of Maeterlinck's play. The music is of the utmost simplicity an : the scoring-for two flutes, two oboes, two clarinets, two bassoons, four horns, timpani, harp, and strings-is a model of clarity and restraint, yet its effect is magical. The curious atmosphere of elusiveness and tragedy that pervades the whole of Maeterlinck's play is suggested in Faure's music with extraordinary insight.

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.
