: A PIANOFORTE RECITAL

by John Davies
' Johannes Kreisler Kapellmeister ' was a fictitious figure created in 1814 by the German romantic novelist, E. T. A. Hoffmann (himself a composer of some merit), in a story called ' Kreisleriana ' and afterwards used by him as a mouthpiece for his musical criticisms. He reappears in Hoffmann's last book, ' The Views on Life of Murr the Tom-Cat, with a fragmentary biography of the Kapellmeister Johannes Kreisler Kreisler, a grotesque figure, half-genius, half-lunatic, was a sort of exaggerated personification of the German romantic view of music during the first half of the last century, and was to many German musicians of the period the fantastic embodiment of a high ideal. The young Brahms, for instance, loved to call himself' Kreisler junior '.
These pieces of Schumann's, written about 1839, aptly suggest Kreisler's dreams and fancies, his wild rhapsodies, and his bitter epigrams.

: A SONATA RECITAL

Elsie Owen (violin)
Harry Isaacs (pianoforte)
John Ireland's first Violin Sonata in D minor has never enjoyed anything approaching the popularity of its successor in A minor, but, though admittedly a much less mature and individual work than the A minor, it is by no means as inferior to it as one might conclude.
The D minor Sonata was written during 1908-9 for the third of W. W. Cobbett 's famous chamber music competitions, and carried off the first prize from 134 entries. It was published in 1911, but re-issued in a new and more concise form in 1917 (the date of the A minor). Critics have detected the influence of Vaughan Williams in the slow movement and of Grieg in the opening of the finale, but the work as a whole could have been written by no one but Ireland.

This evening's European Concert is a particularly interesting programme for in the space of an hour it covers the rich range and variety of Italian music during the sixteenth, seventeenth, and eighteenth centuries. With the exception of Cesti, Lotti, and Cimarosa, who was a composer of charming operas after the style of Mozart, the composers to be heard this evening are among the great masters. Palestrina was one of the greatest figures the world has known in church music ; Monteverdi, the founder of modern opera; Corelli, the founder of modern string music ; and Scarlatti and Pergolesi carried on the work of Monteverdi.

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.
