: DVORAK

Quintet in A for pianoforte and string quartet, Op. 81
1 Allegro ma non tanto. 2 Dumka : Andante con moto. 3 Furiant : Molto vivace. 4 Finale: Allegro played by The Griller String Quartet :
Sidney Griller (violin)
Jack O'Brien (violin)
Philip Burton (viola)
Colin Hampton (violoncello) and Harry Isaacs (pianoforte)
Dvorak's Piano Quintet was written in 1887. It is one of the finest of his chamber works: 'an absolute revelation ', says Ottokar Sourek , ' of the personality- of Dvorak, a man apparently locked within himself, moving only in the sphere of divine beauty, now plunged in gloomy meditation, his vision lost in eternity, now smiling brightly, bubbling over with happiness and breaking forth in outbursts of the frankest joy. Such a spirit was Dvorak, and thus he appears in this quintet-one of the freshest and most characteristic creations of his genius.' The composer makes brilliant use of the ' Furiant' in the scherzo movement.

: 'OPPING 'OLIDAY

A recorded sound picture of a tour of the hop-gardens of Kent
Produced by Laurence Gilliam
The present season of the year sees one of the most characteristically English occasions in the whole calendar. By bus, bicycle, car, or cart, 'Arry, 'Arriet, and their families take themselves off from London's East End for the hopping season in the Kentish hopfields. Here for the next few weeks they will be living under canvas, or in hutments, working by day, and singing and making merry by night.
A couple of years ago a BBC recording van travelled with the hoppers to Kent, took records of scenes on the road, of work in the hopfields themselves, and of the spare-time life of these cheerful Cockneys. The whole was woven into a programme that tonight it being repeated in its entirety.

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.
