: A PIANOFORTE RECITAL

by Valerie Hamilton
Valerie Hamilton was bom in Paris of British parents. Her father, G. Hamilton Briggs , was President of the Paris British Musical Society, and when Miss Hamilton embarked upon her professional career she found it necessary to change her name to Hamilton because of the difficulty that French people found in pronouncing the name Briggs. Miss Hamilton showed outstanding musical gifts at the age of six, and at the age of thirteen she entered the Paris Conservatoire, where she eventuallv won the Premier Prix de Piano. Among other prizes that Miss Hamilton has carried off are the Premier Prix Liszt, Premier Prix d'Histoire de la Musique, and the Premier Prix d'Accompagnement au Piano.
Although this is Miss Hamilton's first broadcast appearance in England, she is well known to French listeners, having broadcast many times from Radio-Paris, Paris P.T.T., and Poste Parisien during the last three years.

Nadia Boulanger, who conducted a series of special recitals of French Choral Music last year, has had a most distinguished academic career. She was educated at the Paris Conservatoire, where she carried off all the worth-while prizes for theory and organ playing, and in 1908 won the Second Grand Prix de Rome with her cantata La Sirène, and in 1913 the First Grand Prix de Rome with her cantata Faust et Helene. This was the first occasion when a woman had ever won this coveted prize in music. Mile. Boulanger is now a teacher herself of great repute, occupying important posts at the Conservatoire, Ecole Normale de Musique, and the American Conservatoire at Fontainebleau.
Further programmes in this series will be broadcast as follows: Tuesday (National, 10.15), Wednesday (National, 6.40), and Friday (National, 7.30).

: PUCCINI THE MAN AND HIS MUSIC

A programme presented by Gordon McConnel and arranged by Mark H. Lubbock
Artists
Eva Turner
Dino Borgioli
Nora Gruhn

George Hancock
(By permission of the Royal Carl Rom

The BBC Chorus (Section C)
The BBC Theatre Orchestra
(Augmented)
Conducted by Stanford Robinson
(Assistant, Arnold Perry )
This programme will be broadcast again tomorrow at 8.0 in the National programme
This programme, which was first produced in March 1936, was in the nature of an experiment-an attempt to broadcast an impression, not only of Puccini's work, but of his unique personality, his moods, and his methods. In place of stereotype announcements of musical items, the presentation took the form of a brief biography, extracts from his letters, outstanding incidents in that chequered career — failures which turned to triumphs-and the unquenchable spirit of the man in face of jealous opposition. The musical illustrations were taken from Madam Butterfly, La Bohème, Tosca, Manon Lescaut , and Turandot.
Three members of the original cast are taking part in this revival-Eva Turner , Dino Borgioli , and Nora Gruhn.

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.
