: A RECITAL

Gregori Tcherniak (balalaika)
Geoffrey Sisley (guitar)
(All arrangements by Janos)
These two accomplished artists have been playing together for some time now. Gregori Tcherniak first broadcast from Savoy Hill in 1927 and has been heard with his balalaika on a great many occasions since then. He possesses, by the way, an extremely fine collection of musical instruments, including the balalaika with which he gave his first broadcast, and which he bought for 7s. 6d. at a second-hand stall. Although the balalaika is mostly used for accompaniment, Gregori Tcherniak was convinced that it was capable of far wider things, and has made many balalaika arrangements of classics which he used to play on the violin.
Geoffrey Sisley plays the guitar almost exclusively, and has been broadcasting with the Karl Caylus Players for some years. He has played fretted instruments since he was a small child, and holds that the balalaika and guitar together form one of the most attractive combinations of such instruments.
Janos, who does all the arrangements for the recitals of this versatile couple, is maried to Alan Frank , well known to RADIO Times readers for his music articles.

Conductor, Walton O'Donnell
Hooton Mitchell (baritone)
Franck's Prelude to the second part of ' Redemption ', a ' Poem Symphony ', or sacred cantata, written in 1872, expounds the idea of man's redemption from the fruits of his selfishness and anger through the influence of Christian ideals and con-duct. The Prelude is a blend of graceful melodic ideas, woven with all Franck's skill and dramatic declamation.

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.
