: The B.B.C. Orchestra of Wind Instruments

Conducted by PERCY PITT
PAUL HERMANN (Violoncello)
PAUL HERMANN , already known to the B.B.C.'s listeners as one of the most brilliant among the younger 'cellists of to-day, is introducing a concerto which is, if we mistake not. new to this country. It is one of the most difficult solo instruments for which to write concertos, so apt is it to be overwhelmed by the volume of orchestral tone ; the difficulty has not often been successfully overcome, and for practical purposes the 'cellist's repertoire is so limited that an addition to it is warmly welcomed. Jacques Ibert , born in Paris in 1890, followed in the foot-steps of some of his most illustrious fellow countrymen by winning the Prix de Rome, the highest award open to French students of music. A,very sound and thoroughly equipped craftsman, he has won renown chiefly as a composer in delicate and sensitive tones : in the refinement of his music it is easy to trace some affinity with Ravel's.

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.

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
