Kabalevsky is one of the most interesting composers now working in Soviet Russia. Thirty-four years of age, he is tall and shy, and his charming personality is reflected in his music. He has already written a piano concerto, two string quartets, and several symphonies. Many listeners will remember the broadcast of his lyrical and melodious Second Symphony, under Albert Coates , about two years ago.

: A PIANOFORTE RECITAL

byErnest Lush
Broadly speaking, the music of Albeniz and Falla has little in common beyond its unmistakable Spanish flavour. Albeniz was an immensely prolific composer, much of whose output for piano consists of more or less conventional salon music ; Falla has written comparatively little, but everything from his pen is of the finest quality. Albeniz is often concerned only with the superficial, picturesque side of Spanish life ; Falla in his best work expresses the essence of the Spanish spirit.
But in these two piano suites,
' Iberia ' and the ' Pieces espagnoles', written at nearly the same time (about 1909), but at the end of Alheniz's career and near the beginning of Falla's, the old composer and the young draw very near together. Both had just come under the influence of Debussy ; it might almost be said that they both found their artistic salvation through him. And these two sensitive and atmospheric sets of piano pieces were the immediate results of their new attitude to art.

: A Ship in the Bay

A nautical comedy, with music, by David Yates Mason
Music by Geoffrey Wright
Orchestrations by Jack Beaver
Cast in order of appearance:
The Cavendish Three
The Rhythm Brothers
with The Augmented BBC Variety Orchestra
Conducted by Charles Shadwell
Production by Archie Campbell
The action takes place at Windybourne-on-Sea and on board H.M.S. Enormous

Four years ago two undergraduates at Cambridge were concerned in a 'Footlights' revue, Sir or Madam. David Yates Mason wrote the book and lyrics, Geoffrey Wright composed the music. They have been working together ever since. Charlot sent a representative to see this successful little university show and gave Yates Mason a contract for his next revue. And so they came to broadcasting.
Both these young men (Geoffrey Wright has been composing music for the Gate Theatre shows for some time) were responsible for a musical play Prelude to Success, broadcast last year, and they have written a number of radio revues.
This spring Yates Mason joined the Royal Naval Volunteer Reserve as a naval rating, and in an article on page 6 he describes how he turned to account his experiences on H.M.S. Royal Oak during her spring cruise in the Mediterranean to obtain authentic atmosphere for A Ship in the Bay.
'A Ship in the Bay' will be broadcast again tomorrow (National, 8.10)

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.
