MAURICE EISENBERG (Violoncello)
THE B.B.C. ORCHESTRA
(Section D)
Conducted by JOSEPH LEWIS THIS recent work by one of the young Russians who is making a name for himself, has not yet been played by anyone except Maurice Eisenberg; it is not yet published. Born, not quite thirty years ago, in Germany, of Polish-Russian parentage, Eisenberg began his music as a singer in the choirs of the synagogues where his father was cantor. But he was quite a small boy when he turned to the 'cello, and only fifteen when he joined Stokowski's Philadelphia Orchestra, leaving it soon afterwards to become solo 'cellist of the New York Symphony Orchestra under Walter Damrosch. Casals heard him there, and advised the young man to give up his post and go to Leipzig to study with Julius Klengel; Eisenberg did that, and afterwards had lessons from Hugo Becker in Berlin. But it has'always been Casals to whom he has looked for guidance and inspiration, and whenever he is free, ho makes straight for Barcelona, where encouragement and help are generously given him by his older colleague. Eisenberg gave his first recital at the age of twenty-four, with a success which he has repeated everywhere : B.B.C. listeners have already had chances of hearing for themselves that he is one of the great 'cellists of our day. TUTR. PERCY PITT, happily known to wire
less listeners, until his retirement, as tho B.B.C.'s Director of Music, has had a large share in raising British music to the honourable position which it holds today. This comparatively slight piece is a happy example of gracious melody, and of the skilful way in which he can present it. Laid-out for solo violin and 'cello, with accompaniment by the other strings, muted, it begins and closes in a graceful waltz rhythm, with a more energetic section in the middle.

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.
