In a programme of Viennese Waltzes.

The Waltz is said to have made its first appearance in Southern Germany about 1780, and was derived from a peasant dance known as the Ländler, of which Beethoven and Schubert wrote some examples. It reached England from the Continent as a dance in 1812, and immediately gave great offence to the decorous. Mothers and chaperons forbade their charges to have anything to do with it, and it even came under the ban of Byron's scathing satire. Viennese temperament, however, saved the day for the waltz, which is now more than a century old and still ' not out.'

The 'Fantasias of Henry Purcell , transcribed and edited by Peter Warlock and André Alangeot from a British Museum manuscript strangely overlooked until a few years ago, have proved to Le one of the most valuable of all recent discoveries. Besides possessing a beauty remarkable even for Purcell, the polyphonic craft these fantasias display and the varied manner in which the music is presented show the great English composer to have been not only a genuis, but a prophet. There are passages, it is true, which are of the age of Byrd,
but that one should, in listening to the fantasias (written in 1680), be idiomatically reminded or Bach. Beethoven, Schumann, or others of the nineteenth century, and even of the twentieth, would seem incredible to those who have not experienced tho illusion.
Ernst von Dohnanyi has been made welcome to this country on several occasions and for every
, one of the talents he has displayed to us. He is a pianist, with a very distinguished reputation; he has conducted our orchestras and has proved his right to be asked to do so; but it is perhaps as a composer that we have learned to regard him most highly. He is, in the first place, an impeccable craftsman, he treats tunes as friendly things and makes us share his friendship; he can even make music laugh, and for that faculty, 'so rare with others, we are filled with gratitude. This beantiful Quartet was written a quarter of a century ago and is still as young as when it was first put on paper.

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.
