FREDERIC LAMOND (pianoforte)
From the St. Andrew's Hall, Glasgow
Although Frederic Lamond has more or less resided in Germany from the age of fourteen, when, in 1882, he began to study seriously for his career, he is by birth and parentage a Scotsman, born in Glasgow. At the age of twelve he was appointed organist of Laurieston Parish Church ; at seventeen, a credit to his masters, von Bulow and Liszt, he was giving his first important recitals in Berlin and Vienna, and a year later in London. At present he is celebrating the Fiftieth Anniversary of his first appearance in London with a series of recitals at the Wigmore Hall, in addition to his celebration concert this evening.
Lamond's visits to this country for the last thirty years have been made annually, save for the five years from 1914-1919, and since 1926, when he was soloist in a BBC Symphony Concert relayed from Albert Hall , he has broadcast frequently and regularly.
The modern style of symphonic development, which is shown in its highest form in Sibelius's Fourth Symphony, is the direct outcome of Beethoven's symphonic style. The Symphony No. 5 in C minor is an excellent example, particularly the first movement which is based on the tersest of thematic material (the whole movement is almost entirely built upon the opening rhythmic figure often described as being symbolical of the summons of Fate) and developed with extraordinary imagination.
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.
