from page 49 of 'New Every Morning'

: RECITAL

Mildred Watson (soprano)
Denise Lassimonne (pianoforte)
Mozart's piano sonatas admittedly do not show him at the height of his powers. (The fine C minor Sonata, K.457, is exceptional.) But, as this delightful example shows, Mozart's astonishing fertility of invention enriches even these comparatively slight works-probably written for the use of his pupils. The Sonata is historically interesting, too, as an illustration of the keyboard technique of the period when the pianoforte had not yet entirely supplanted the harpsichord and clavichord. It is usually attributed to the late 1770's, but internal evidence suggests that it is a more youthful work.

: A PIANOFORTE RECITAL

by Eileen Joyce
Eileen Joyce ran wild in the bush of Australia before being educated by the nuns of the Loreto Convent in Perth on Swan River. They were the first to teach her serious music, and brought her playing before the notice of Percy Grainger and Backhaus when they visited the convent. Little more than eight years ago she arrived unknown and still in her teens in England. After a few lessons from Tobias Matthay she made her first appearance in London at a Prom in 1930, and her debut on the air by playing a Prokofiev concerto. Three years' intensive study with Matthay followed. She won the Woodward Smith Scholarship in 1931 and at a concert given by his students two years later brought the house down with those same two studies of Liszt and Schlozer which also made her name with the gramophone public. In 1936 she made a tour of Australia.

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.
