by Lili Kraus (pianoforte)
Lili Kraus has been playing as a concert soloist in many parts of Europe ever since she was seventeen. Born in Budapest in 1908, she started her music training at the age of six. She went as a student to Budapest at the age of nine, and received the highest degrees when she was only seventeen. At twenty she became Professor of the Piano at the New Conservatory in Vienna. In 1935- and 1936 she toured not only in England and the Continent, but in China, Japan, and the Dutch Indies, as soloist and sonata player.

Here is well-varied light entertainment from Cumberland and the West Riding of Yorkshire; from theatres, built in the 'seventies, which possess two of the biggest stages in the provinces.
Her Majesty's at Carlisle stands on a site originally occupied by a building called the Victoria Hall. This earlier hall was put up in 1874, and it became Her Majesty's Theatre five years later. Fire destroyed it in 1904, but after quick rebuilding the re-opening was achieved in the following year. Both theatres are rich in tradition and both have been visited by many of the world's most famous stage players. Wilson Barrett was the first lessee of the Grand at
Leeds, opened in 1878-' the Great Yorkshire County Theatre '. The auditorium was constructed on lines similar to those of Milan Opera House, with twenty-two boxes. It has accommodation for well over
2,000 people. Normally the Grand houses once-nightly entertainment.
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.
