GEZA FRID (pianoforte)
(First performance in England)
Geza Frid was born in 1904 at Maramarossziget, Hungary. He studied the piano from the age of five, receiving his first lessons from ,his mother. Later he continued his studies in Budapest at the Academy of Music, where he worked at composition as well as the piano. In 1927 Geza Frid went abroad, giving concerts in nearly all the countries in Europe. After long periods in Italy and in France, he chose Amsterdam as his permanent residence.
He had his first success as a composer in 1927, the year in which his string quartet was played in Budapest and in London. Since that date he has written several important chamber works, including a string trio and a 'cello sonata. In the course of his work as a pianist Geza Frid has made known his own piano compositions; his orchestral works include a Suite and a Violin Concerto.
(First performance in England)
Kodaly and Bartok are the two leading national composers of Hungary. Kodaly studied at the Budapest Conservatoire and during that time came under the influence of the music of Brahms and Debussy. He then became deeply interested in folk-song and travelled through remote parts of Hungary collecting folk tunes among the peasants, from whom he obtained between three and four thousand.
In 1906 Kodaly was appointed
Professor of Composition at the Budapest Conservatoire, and for many years he also practised as a musical critic.

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.
