: Composers of the Week: FannyMendelssohn-Hensel and Clara Schumann

5/5. Late Works. Fanny Mendelssohn-Hensel was 40 before she published some of her music under her own name. Its favourable reception encouraged her to tackle one of her finest and final works, the Piano Trio in D minor. Music was a source of solace for Clara Schumann after her husband's breakdown and death, and once she resumed her career as a concert pianist she more-or-less stopped composing and turned instead to championing her husband's music. With Donald Macleod.

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.
