: Chamber Music

ALEX COHEN (1st Violin) .
HAYDN YORKE (Violoncello)
BORN in Bohemia, though of Italian stock
Pick-Mangiagalli betrays some influence of both countries in his music. And from the few pieces of chamber music he has written, it could easily be guessed, too, that he is happily at home in music for the stage-ballets and similarly lighthearted works. It is with these that he has won his chief successes. This quartet was first played in England as long ago as 1912, at a Leeds Chamber Concert, but is still almost unknown except to players. Not a quartet in the older, formal, sense, it is rather three musical impressions, slight, delicate, and arresting in the beauty of their melodies.

Quartet in G Minor, Op. 18 Nocturne-adagio, piu mosso, molto vivace ; Arietta-andantino quasi allegretto; Epilogue -molto allegro (First broadcast perfonnance) - Pick-Mangiagalli
Five Love Songs Thy dear Presence The dead Heart wakes again Ah ! Love will never crown our Hopes Undying Memory May dawns over the Landscape (First broadcast performance) - Dvorak
Allegro commodo - Rimsky-Korsakov
Quartet in E Minor, Op. 83 Allegro moderate ; Piacevole—poco andante; Allegro molto - Elgar

Viola: Haydn Yorke

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.
