: A PIANOFORTE RECITAL

by Erik Chisholm
(Scottish Programme)
Constant Lambert's Piano Sonata was written during the years 1928-9. It therefore comes between The Rio Grande and the Piano Concerto. The music of this sonata is more in the style of the latter work ; that is to say, it is more serious in outlook and harsher in idiom than The Rio Grande. The music is full of rhythmic diversity and shows an extraordinarily keen invention. Alan Frank pointed out in a recent article that although this work abounds in syncopated and cross rhythms, ' it is wrong to relate them to jazz ', because it has ' neither the inflexibility of Charing Cross jazz-rhythms nor the rubato and unnotatable features which reside, believe it or not, in authentic " swing " music '.
The first movement in the main follows the lines of classical sonata form. The slow movement, which is a Nocturne, consists of several short sections: first a Blues, then a quick syncopated Interlude, followed by a rather gloomy Habanera, which in its turn is followed by a second Interlude in the same style as the first, finally a section which is a combination of the Blues and Habanera. The last movement is toccata-like in style and in the middle there is an elaborate fugato.

: POEMS I ENJOY

Margaret Rawlings
Only ten years ago Margaret Raw lings made her first appearance on the professional stage. Few actresses in so short a time have achieved such success. She has toured Canada and the United States in Shaw repertory ; has played Salome in both London and New York ; has acted in Australia ; and in 1935 appeared in New York as Katharine O'Shea in Parnell. Listeners will remember her broadcasts in Troilus and Cressida, Hippolytus, and Antony and Cleopatra (the last less than a year ago). They will look forward to hearing the poems she enjoys, and more particularly to her reading some of them.

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
