: A Pianoforte Interlude

Edward MacDowell , though an American-born composer, descended from a Quaker family of Scottish-Irish extraction, and retained throughout his life Gaelic characteristics. He was educated, for the most part, in Europe. When he returned to America he gave himself whole-heartedly to the advancement of music in that country and exerted a healthy influence on American composers.
MacDowell was essentially a romanticist, and like his master, Joachim Raff , was fond of interpreting nature in terms of music. One [could almost say that his contribution to American music is akin to that of Nathaniel Hawthorne in American literature.

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.
