A Pianoforte and Vocal Recital
. by CYRIL SMITH and LESLIE WRIGHT
Few countries can show such a wealth of folksong as Great Britain, both as regards quality and variety. A large amount of it, however, might have easily been lost for ever were it not for the painstaking researches of the late Cecil Sharp and other scholars and specialists, who carried out their work with scrupulous care and wholehearted enthusiasm. Of contemporary folksong experts Dr. Vaughan Williams is certainly the most important, and the use he has made of many fine folk tunes in his own music, particularly as regards his arrangements of songs, is of great and lasting value. E. J. Moeran has also done some valuable work as a collector of Norfolk folk-songs, a number of which he has used as a basis for his own compositions.

: Symphony Concert

Relayed from The Musikvereinssaal, Vienna
In co-operation with THE AUSTRIAN BROADCASTING COMPANY
THE VIENNA PHILHARMONIC
ORCHESTRA
Conducted by ADRIAN BOULT
For beautiful string tone and brilliance of execution the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra cannot be surpassed. It was founded in 1842, and in 1860 became a permanent organisation, eventually, in 1870, giving all its concerts in the now building of the Society of Music Friends. Among the great conductors who have guided this famous orchestra's career are Otto Dessoff , Richter, Mahler, Schalk, Nikisch, Strauss, nnd Weingartner. In view of the much-discussed problem of whether one country's music can be satisfactorily interpreted by musicians of another country, it will therefore be particularly interesting to hear Elgar's Introduction and Allegro and Hoist's Ballet Music from The Perfect Fool played by a Viennese orchestra under a British conductor.

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.
