A Concert of Works by Australian Composers
Etta Bernard (Australian contralto)
Pauline Juler (clarinet)
The Norbert Wethmar Pianoforte
Quintet :
Norbert Wethmar (violin) ; Nathan Comras (violin) ; John Yewe Dyer (viola) ; Walter Nunn (violoncello) ;
Wilfrid Parry (pianoforte)
The works to be heard this afternoon all won prizes in the Australian
Composers' Competition which was organised by the Australian Broadcasting Commission in 1934 to 1935. This broadcast has been arranged to give listeners an idea of what has been done in the creative side of Australian music, and as a gesture towards empire broadcasting in general.
Among the composers represented is Fritz Hart , who is already known to British listeners, for in September, 1936 he conducted an orchestral concert from the studio. Although he made his name as a conductor in Australia where he is co-director of the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra, he studied at the Royal College of Music, where he was a contemporary of Gustav Hoist, Coleridge-Taylor, Vaughan Williams , and Hurlstone. Mr. Hart is also director of the Melbourne Conservatoire of Music. As well as conducting the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra, he goes every year to Honolulu to conduct the Honolulu Symphony Orchestra from December to May.

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

Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in programmes, online etc.

This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers, images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
