ANTONIO BAZZINI, a nineteenth century
A Italian musician, was in his day an eminent violinist and composer, though little of his work (if one excepts the popular Ronde des Lutins) is heard today. In 1867 he had an opera, Turandot, performed, but it had no success. It is odd that of all those who have attempted to make music to Gozzi's drama-and the number includes Weber and Busoni-only Puccini has really succeeded in coming to grips with a story that seems almost too short to be set to music.

Quartet in B Flat for Strings, Op. 168 Schubert
1. Allegro ma non troppo ; 2. Andante sostenuto ; 3. Menuetto : Allegro ; 4. Presto
THIS work, which bears a very late (posthumous) opus number was actually composed in 1814, when Schubert was still laboriously teaching little boys at the curiously named ' Convict ' School. It was not published during the composer's lifetime, and the manuscript was probably amongst the ' effects ' which were sold after Schubert's death for a few shillings.
THESE are the second and third movements of the Prelude, Aria and Finale which is, in effect, a pianoforte sonata, and like the former Prelude, Clwral and Fugue, is the form in which César Franck chose to clothe his ideas in symphonic form for the pianoforte. Both these works were written late in the composer's life, and reflect the maturity of Franck's outlook on pianoforte music and keyboard technique.
REINHOLD GLIÈRE is scarcely known in this country except by this quartet, which is in the repertory of most of the leading quartets, and occasionally figures in programmes. Sir Dan Godfrey has, however, performed his third symphony at Bournemouth, while, at Queen's Hall, that other home of enterprise, Gliere's first symphony had its first English performance at a Promenade Concert in 1906. Gliere is a professor of composition in Moscow.

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.
