: CHAUSSON

Concerto for solo violin, solo pianoforte, and string quartet
1 Decide. 2 Sicilienne. 3 Grave.
4 Finale played by Winifred Small (violin)
Maurice Cole (pianoforte) and The Kutcher String Quartet:
Samuel Kutcher (violin) Max Saalpeter (violin)
Raymond Jeremy (viola)
Douglas Cameron (violoncello)
Ernest Chausson was a pupil of both Massenet and Cesar Franck. From Massenet he learnt to write with the utmost purity of texture and from Cesar Franck he derived his richness of harmonic colour and deep romantic feeling.
These characteristics are well shown in the Concerto in D for piano, violin, and string quartet. This combination is sometimes called in programmes a sextet, but the designation is not correct, as the piano and violin have definitely more important parts than the string quartet. It was written in 1891 and first heard in Brussels the following year. The work had the advantage of being played by a first-rate pianist and string quartet with Ysaye as solo violin.

: THE WEEK'S GOOD CAUSE

An appeal on behalf of THE MERTHYR GENERAL HOSPITAL by the Mayor of Merthyr Tydfil,
Councillor ISAAC EDWARDS
The Merthyr Hospital serves one of the most depressed areas in Great Britain, where 41.7 per cent. of the population are unemployed. It is a general hospital with orthopaedic and surgical departments ; accidents to miners form a great proportion of the cases. The hospital depends for its funds on purely voluntary subscriptions and contributions ; beds are open to all in need of hospital treatment.
Contributions will be gratefully acknowledged, and should be addressed to [address removed]

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.

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.
