: THE LONDON SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA

Led by George Stratton
Conducted by HERBERT CARRUTHERS
The BBC Symphony Orchestra and the London Philharmonic Orchestra are not the only British orchestras that have won success abroad. The London Symphony Orchestra, which was founded in 1904, went to Paris with the Leeds Choral Union during its second season and gave two concerts at the Chatelet Theatre. In 1912 it travelled with Nikisch as conductor, 11,500 miles in the United States and Canada, giving thirty-one concerts-the first at Carnegie Hall, New York. Among the many distinguished conductors who have been associated with the London Symphony Orchestra arc Richter, Nikisch, Safonov, Mengelberg, Beecham, Coates, Furtwangler, Weingartner, Koussevitzky, to mention only a few.

May Busby (soprano)
The Laurance Turner String Quartet: Laurance Turner (violin); Walter Price (violin); Eric Bray (viola); Jack Shinebourne (violoncello)
Mozart's Quartet (K.458) is the so-called 'Hunt' Quartet, the third of the magnificent set dedicated to Haydn; it was finished on November 9, 1784. The great German Mozart-scholar, Hermann Abert, considers that "the centre of gravity of this quartet lies in the two middle movements — the minuet, here placed second, and the very impressive adagio, whose gloomy pathos is relieved by the glowing fervour of the second theme — another plain proof of Mozart's vein of romanticism... The finale returns to the spirit of the first movement, with its combination of delicious Mozartian roguishness and Haydnesque humour. The very theme, taken from an old folk-song, prepares the hearer for what is coming."
Dvorak began the G major Quartet in 1895 soon after his return from America. He was overjoyed at finding himself once more amid familiar scenes, and his joy found full expression in two magnificent quartets, this one and that in A flat, Op. 106. "These quartets", writes Ottokar Sourek, "are the swan songs of Dvorak's chamber music, which reaches its zenith in these two compositions. Dvorak's artistic nature is manifest here in all its purity and individuality..... The first two movements of the G major Quartet belong to the greatest things which ever came from Dvorak's pen."

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.
