Arthur Catterall (violin)
ARTHUR CATTERALL AND ORCHESTRA
Beethoven's Violin Concerto in D, one of the greatest of all concertos written for this instrument, was composed in 1908, when it was first performed at the Theater-an-der-Wien in Vienna by the leader of the orchestra, Franz Clement.
It is a work of great lyrical beauty, particularly in the first and second movements. The writing throughout shows Beethoven's perfect understanding of the violin and the orchestration is especially effective. One of the most notable features of the first movement is the opening figure comprising four drum beats, which plays an important part throughout the movement.
Arthur Catterall, this afternoon's soloist, made his first public appearance as a violinist at the age of six. When only nine years old he played at Manchester as soloist in Mendelssohn's Concerto. His doctors said he was too delicate to go on appearing in public, and he was sent to the Royal Manchester College of Music, where he studied under Willy Hess and Dr. Adolf Brodsky. When he was eighteen Richter invited him to Bayreuth, where he played at Cosima Wagner 's soirees.
At twenty-five he was leading the orchestra at the Queen's Hall promenade concerts, and five years later was leading the Halle Orchestra.
Catterall is undoubtedly one of Britain's leading violinists, and has done much for music in England as a soloist, as founder of the Catterall Quartet , as leader of the Chamber Music Players, of the BBC Symphony Orchestra, and as professor for many years at the Royal Manchester College of Music.

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.
