by Lena Wood (viola)
Doris Watkins (pianoforte)
Bloch's Suite for viola and piano, which won a Coolidge prize, was written while the composer was living in New York in 1919. It is said that each movement is intended to suggest the atmosphere of different oriental countries, and that the composer at first labelled each movement with a title but afterwards decided not to bother the listener with programatic implications. Ernest New-man has said of this work: Here is - a mind of the most definite individuality, that can say things in music that have never been said before, and say them beautifully and convincingly without any resort to extravagance in idiom '.

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.
