BRAHMS was not a violinist himself, but he wrote well for the instrument as though he knew all about it. He certainly had the opportunity as a young man, for one of his first engagements was to tour through Germany with the gypsy violinist, Eduard Remenyi , as his accompanist. When they got to Hanover, Remenyi took Brahms along with him on a visit to Joachim. Brahms was then twenty, and unknown, while Joachim at twenty-two was already an acknowledged virtuoso. This was the beginning of a life-long friendship, and when Brahms, a quarter of a century later, contemplated a violin concerto, it was for Joachim that he wrote it.

and THE PARK LANE HOTEL ORCHESTRA,
LEONARD GOWINGS (Tenor)
From The Park Lane Hotel
IN the original version of Gounod's Faust produced in Paris at the Theatre Lyriquo, the only ballet was in the Kermesse scene of the second act. Ten years later the composer revised the work for production at the Grand Opera, and the traditions of that theatre demanded something more elaborate in the way of ballet. The two authors of the libretto accordingly raided the second part of Goethe's Faust, untouched for Gounod's original opera, and made use of the revels of the Walpurgis night. There, in Goethe's play and in this revised version of Gounod's opera, Faust meets many of the famous women of old, Cleopatra, Helen, the Trojan Women, and other personages of myth and legend. When the opera is given in this country this scene is almost always omitted.
(At the Pianoforte, Jack BYFIELD)








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.
