: A RECITAL

The Anthony Pini
Violoncello Quartet:
Anthony Pini ; John Moore ;
John Francis ; Edward Robinson
One of the rarest of chamber music combinations is a cello ensemble. It will therefore be an exceedingly interesting experience to hear the present Cello Quartet, the personnel of which consists of fout of London's leading cellists of the younger school. They all originally occupied the first two desks of the London Philharmonic Orchestra, and now they fill the same position in Sir Henry Wood 's Queen's Hall Orchestra.
Anthony Pini needs no introduction to listeners, for he is a frequent broadcaster. John Moore is hardly less well known, particularly as soloist of the Stratton String Quartet. Edward Robinson and John Francis also frequently appear in various chamber music ensembles. There is probably not more than a handful of original works for four cellos, Popper's Gavotte being a notable instance. Thus most of the repertoire of the Pini Quartet consists of music specially arranged for four cellos.

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.
