: A SONATA RECITAL

Margot Macgibbon (violin)
Frederick Jackson (pianoforte)
Schumann's two sonatas for violin and piano, both written in 1851, were the first important works for that combination after Beethoven and Schubert. They provide a striking refutation of the legend that Schumann's powers declined seriously towards the end of his career.
The D minor is perhaps the greater of the two, but the A minor -somewhat Mendelssohnian, like the Piano Concerto in the same key -is a fine work. No one but Schumann could have written the charming second movement.

: THE BBC ORCHESTRA

(Section D) Led by Laurance Turner Conducted by Clarence Raybould
Vitya Vronsky and Victor Babin
(pianofortes)
Arnold Bax describes his tone poem ' Tintagel' as follows: 'This work is only in the broadest sense programme music. The composer's intention is simply to offer a tonal impression of the castle-crowned cliff of (now sadly degenerate) Tintagel, and more especially of the long distances of the Atlantic, as seen from the cliffs of Cornwall on a sunny but not windless summer day. The literary and traditional associations of the scene also enter into the scheme. The music opens, after a few introductory bars, with a theme, given out on the brass, which may be taken as representing the ruined castle, now so ancient and weather-worn as to seem an emanation of the rock upon which it is built. The subject is worked to a broad diatonic climax and is followed by a long melody for strings, which may suggest the serene and almost limitless spaces of the ocean.'

: 'THE ASCENT OF F6'

A tragedy by W. H. Auden and Christopher Isherwood in a shortened version for the microphone, with music composed by Benjamin Britten
Cast
Music played by Benjamin Britten and Ernest Lush
The play produced by Barbara Burnham
When it was produced a year or two ago, first at the Mercury and then at the Little Theatre, The Ascent of F6 was hailed as one of the big current successes. The collaboration of Messrs. Auden and Isherwood had produced a sensitive, symbolic, and' a deeply-moving picture of what so many men are striving for in a world of arrogance and confused values. F6, an imaginary mountain, is attacked by a climbing party led by Michael Ransom , and the play is concerned chiefly with the experiences of the party as they go higher and higher towards their goal, and finally with the revelation to Ransom in the nature of the goal itself.

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.
