FOR a 'cellist to compile a recital programme, in which no other
'cellist's name appears as composer, is an unusual feat; a large share of the instrument's scanty heritage-scanty when wo compare it with the violin's, for instance—has been given by composers who were 'cellists first and composers after-sometimes a long way after. All the names hero are known to B.B.C. audiences as those of composers, though the last is only a recent acquaintance : Abram Chasins gave a broadcast recital a few weeks ago, playing some of his own pianoforte music. Ferrari, to be sure, is the name of a distinguished 'cellist of an older day, but the Ferrari whose serenade is being played this evening is a pianist, best known to the great public as Yvetto Guilbort 's accompanist.
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.
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.
