THE ALEX COHEN QUARTET
A DISTINGUISHED French author, music
A historian and critic one day came across a symphony by a young composer of the name of Ernest Bloch who lived in Geneva. The musfc so impressed him and he was so anxious to meet Bloch that he made a special journey from Paris with that object. Arrived at Geneva, he was directed to a quaintly stocked shop, and there found the man he had come to visit unconcernedly engaged in. the job of sorting a stock of mountain - climbers' blouses. Alas, thought the visitor, can this unhappy man then express himself in music only in his hours of leisure? Can it be that even the genius of today is exposed to such indignity? As a matter of fact, however, genius was at that time not bothering very much about self-expression of any sort. He was too busy giving rein to his versatility and his leisure was spent at the University of Geneva, lecturing -but not on music. But since those days, and now that he is in America as director of the Cleveland Institute of Music, Bloch has given practically all his time to music, and his later compositions have established him as a composer of international standing. His music is full of poetry and passion, possesses a marked Hebrew idiom, and is confessedly the work of a man for whom the Old Testament is a heritage and an ever present influence. Although the Three Landscapes is now being performed for the first time in England, it is not actually a new work, having been composed some six or seven years ago. Bloch, however, publishes infrequently, and the list of his compositions is surprisingly small in view of his age, 52, and his high reputation.

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.
