: A Violin Recital

By ALBERT SAMMONS
VERY few artists have made their way into the front rank with so little help or guidance as Sammons. His father, an enthusiastic ama-' teur violinist, was his first teacher, and, as a youngster, ho had a few lessons from Saunders and Woist-Hill. Otherwise, he has taught himself, with a thoroughness and a complete success which academic training rarely achieves. His style is modelled on no one school or method; he has evolved it for himself, solving all its technical problems on a personal and practical basis of his own, and the result is as eminently successful as it is individual. His playing on amodern violin, when he might have his pick of the best old instruments available, is one instance of the courage of his own convictions, backed as they are by a sound and comprehensive knowledge. He had a full share of enrlv hardships and musical drudgery before he won any recognition of his outstanding gifts; his first big chance came when Sir Thomas Beecham heard him play a concerto with a hotel orchestra. He was then twenty-two, and for ten years had been earning his own livelihood in conditions which only the stoutest heart and the truest artistic ideals could have survived; some years of orchestral leadership and ensemble playing followed, at home and abroad. But through all that hard work he was steadily making his way to the position he has held ever since the War, in the forefront of the violinists of our time.

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.
