: A RECITAL

Montague Brearley (violin)
Esther Fisher (pianoforte)
The delicate and subtle muse of Delius is at its best and most expressive in his orchestral music. A great deal of its elusive charm is due to Delius's fanciful use of the orchestra, which is handled with striking mastery of effect. There is little doubt that Delius thought almost entirely in terms of the orchestra, and the style of his chamber works, for instance, would appear to bear this out. The essential rhapsodic and fragmentary character of Delius's music does not really lend itself to the-necessary treatment inherent in sonata-form. Nevertheless, whatever structural weaknesses there may be in such works as the Violin Sonata No. 1 they are to a great extent counterbalanced by the sheer beauty of the simple and haunting melodic phrases and their embellishments.
Very different in conception is
Faure's Violin Sonata in A, which first and foremost is a fine piece of writing in the classical sonata mould. Its symmetry is perfectly balanced and the music is full of the composer's graceful and poetic characteristics.

(Northern Ireland Programme)
Twelve years ago two men of very different type, who had first met as fellow actors in a Shaw season, met at a street corner in Dublin. They were Jimmy O'Dea and Harry O'Donovan. Being at a loose end, they decided to put up a show together, and this was the beginning of a partnership which has lasted ever since. '
They now run revues and pantomimes for forty-two weeks of the year, spending about four months each year in England. Many excerpts from their shows have been broadcast from the Empire Theatre, Belfast. The revue they are to present tonight includes the pick of some of their big successes, with specially written material for the microphone.

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.
