Mendelssohn Duets: Greeting
The Maybells and Flowers Autumn Song
The Harvesters
The Passage-Birds' Farewell
These two popular artists, who have made a speciality of ' Old Song Pictures,' have appeared in America and Belgium and all over England, and are very old favourites on the air. They were among the first to appear in television wearing costumes appropriate to the particular song. This evening Guelda Waller will sing some of the old folk songs in which she specialises, and Vera Maconochie songs from Shakespeare to a guitar accompaniment, that instrument being the nearest approach to the lute, to which these songs were originally sung They will also sing some Mendelssohn duets. They last broadcast in the evening programmes in August, and in the Children's Hour in October.

Sonata in A minor, Op. 7
1. Allegro moderato ; 2. Scherzo; 3. Romanze: Andante grazioso ; 4. Finale: Allegro vivaco
Chamber music does not appear to be a favourite means of expression with Dame Ethel Smyth. Apart from the two pianoforte and wind trios, out of her considerable range of compositions, there are only four chamber works, and these arc all early works.
Brahms, whom Dame Ethel knew intimately, was her model in chamber music. His influence is to be seen in the first movement of the Violin Sonata in A minor (1887), with its conflicting rhythms of two against three, the doubling of the melody at the octave, and several other little stylistic mannerisms. However, this sonata is rich in ideas and possesses much individuality and charm.
The first two movements of the Quartet in E minor were written in 1902, but were put aside until nine years later, when Dame Ethel was commissioned to write a chamber work for the first concert of the new Society of Women Musicians. Another two movements were added and the complete Quartet was given its first performance by the London String Quartet. The last movement, an excellent fugue on a very terse and rhythmic subject, is particularly attractive.

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.
