: A Recital

Max Rostal (violin)
Franz Osborn (pianoforte)
Sonata in E minor (K.304) ...... Mozart
Duo Concertante ...... Stravinsky
In 1933 Max Rostal left Berlin, where he was a professor at the State Institute. He teaches in London, and has a large clientele of international pupils. Soon afterwards he gave his first recital in London, at the Wigmore Hall, and made his debut on the air in this country. He has been broadcasting regularly ever since.
Recently he discovered a cadenza for Beethoven's Violin Concerto, written by Beethoven himself. This he will perform for the first time this month in Amsterdam with the Concertgebouw Orchestra. He also discovered recently in Padua an old concerto by Tartini, which has never been played before. It is to be published shortly and he will play it for the first time at one of the London concerts during the season.
Franz Osborn was born in Berlin, and, while still a boy, was heard by Artur Schnabel, who insisted on his becoming a pianist. He studied with him for several years, and subsequently with Leonid Kreutzer at the Hochschule für Musik, in Berlin, and for a short time with Max Pauer in Stuttgart. About ten years ago he began touring Europe and has played in almost every European country. He broadcast for the first time in this country eight years ago, and has lived in London since 1934.
Like Rostal, with whom he has appeared at several concerts, Franz Osborn has many international pupils. He has given many first performances, notably that of Sinfonia Concertante for piano and orchestra by William Walton. This was given in Berlin, with the composer conducting.

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.
