From Paris
Alban Berg 's Five Orchestral Songs (settings of aphorisms sent to the composer on postcards by the poet Peter Altenberg ) were written in 1912. Two of them were performed in Vienna the following year, but the strange character of both words and music evoked so much hostility from the audience that the concert broke up in disorder. They are still unpublished: Berg's widow had tihe score sent to Jasoha Horenstein , who was a friend of the composer, and he gave the first performance of the songs in their entirely early this year.

Dorothea Braus (piano)
The Sonata in F minor is the second of three sonatas written by Beethoven when he was about eleven years old; they were published in 1783 with a high-flown dedicatory letter addressed to the Elector of Cologne. The second sonata, an astonish-in.g piece of work for a boy, foreshadows Beethoven's later ' Appassionata ' mood.
Hans Gal 's Sonatina is dedicated to
Dorothea Braus. There are four movements: Allegro con fuoco, Adagio, Andante capriccioso, and Vivace. H. R.


Piano: Dorothea Braus

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.
