In European centres of music and in America Albert Coates's engagements as guest conductor are frequent ; in consequence, it is only on rare occasions that we get the opportunity of hearing him either in London or in the provinces.
He studied conducting and gained his experience abroad, particularly as second conductor to Nikisch, whose pupil for a time he was. Thereafter, in the opera houses of Germany and Russia he acquired a very thorough knowledge of the operatic repertory, and when he was thirty-one he came to London and shared with Nikisch the conductorship of the Wagner operas in that brilliant season of 1913. Since that date, interrupted by the War, he has been one of the most prominent of British conductors both here and abroad.
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.
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.
This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers,
images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio
Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available
externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
