: A PIANOFORTE RECITAL

by Clifford Curzon
Clifford Curzon was born in 1907 and began his studies at the age of eleven under Charles Reddie , who was a pupil of Stavenhagen at the Royal Academy of Music. Curzon won the Potter Exhibition, the Thalberg Scholarship, and several other important honours. On leaving the college he studied in Berlin under Artur Schnabel. He gave up his professorship at the Royal Academy of Music for two years for further study and travel abroad. He had a great success in Berlin in 1928. He toured Germany in 1929, giving chamber music concerts as well as orchestral, and on his return to England the following year took up his professorship again at the Royal Academy of Music. But in 1931 he gave it up owing to his extensive concert engagements.

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.
