: Chopin Visits Scotland

A programme dealing with the three months' sojourn of Frederic Chopin in Scotland in the summer and autumn of 1848 with JEAN JACQUES OBERLIN
HALBERT TATLOCK
ERIC WIGHTMAN GEORGE MURRAY
ELSIE BROTCHIE
NITA SlLLARS
BARBARA LAING
Devised by RoBiN RUSSELL
Produced by ANDREW STEWART
On the second of his visits to Great Britain, in 1848, Chopin was persuaded by his Scottish pupil and friend, Jane Wilhelmina Stirling , to go to Scotland. He stayed there for nearly two months, meeting important people of the day and travelling from country house to country house. Sometimes he was amused, sometimes he was bored, but on the whole he thought Scotland a better place to live in than London. His concerts in Glasgow and Edinburgh were successful from a musical, if not from a financial, point of view. During this tour he had been extremely ill, and on leaving he was in the deepest. dejection. He returned to Paris the following year and died there in the early morning of October 17, 1849.
Monsieur J. J. Oberlin, who plays
Chopin, is well known in Glasgow as a teacher of languages and throughout Scotland for his weekly French talks to schools. Chopin visits Scotland was I first produced on May 17 last year.

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.
