: THE BELAIEV CIRCLE—1

Quartet on the name
B-la-f played by The Kutcher String Quartet:
Samuel Kutcher (violin)
Max Saalpeter (violin)
Raymond Jeremy (viola)
Douglas Cameron (violoncello)
With an introduction by M. D. Calvocoressi
' The Belaiev Circle ', formed about the middle of the 1880's, consisted of Rimsky-Korsakov and a group of young ex-pupils of his, who used to meet in the house of the wealthy music lover, Belaiev. Belaiev began by printing his young friends' compositions at his own expense and eventually founded one of the biggest music-publishing firms in Russia.
An amateur viola-player himself, he was very fond of chamber music and the circle gathered at his house every Friday to play and hear quartets. Hence the title ' Fridays ' given to the collection of short quartet pieces written by the members of the circle. The ' B-la-f ' Quartet was written for Belaiev's 'name-day' in November, 1886.
Further programmes in this series will be broadcast on Tuesday (National, 6.25), Thursday (National,
10.20), and Saturday (Regional, 7.30).

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.
