SOLOMON (pianoforte)
Lionel Tertis has solved so many of the difficulties for which he went out to find solutions when he began his career as a viola soloist, that there can be little left for him to do but to make known his conclusions, to spread his theories among his colleagues and use his influence as a leading viola player to further its cause as a solo instrument.
He has proved, for example, that there are not only composers who are willing to create, and have in part created, a repertory of original works for the viola virtuoso, but that there is a rich repertory already in existence which needs only skilful adapting to make it practicable. This programme affords a good example of this practice, as Mr. Tertis's own comments on the items make clear. Of the Dohnanyi Sonata he says : ' The violin part is played in the same pitch on the viola with practically no alteration, and approved by the composer with whom
I played it a few years ago ' ; of the Rachmaninov: The 'cello part is transcribed for viola ' ; of the Brahms : ' I play this as originally written for clarinet with slight alterations '.

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.

Welcome to BBC Genome
