: CHAMBER MUSIC

Rene Soames (tenor)
Clifton Helliwell (accompanist)
The New London Quartet:
Erich Gruenberg (violin)
Lionel Bentley (violin) Keith Cummings (viola) Douglas Cameron (cello)
Franz Reizenstein (piano)
Although Franz Reizenstein is a pianist and doubtless wrote the piano part of his Quintet with himself in mind as performer, he would appear to have avoided the chief danger inherent in such works: thart of giving the pianist the lion's share' while reducing the strings to the level of a mere accompaniment. The p!ano part, though by no means wanting .in brilliance and elaboration, does not swamp the strings, and the interest is equally divided among all the instruments. The work, while showing a strong feeling for harmonic effect, is largely polyphonic in style, and vigorous, athletic rhythms abound. In the slow movement there are many passages of eloquence and drama; the Scherzo, in contrast, suggests a gay hunting party. The finale has a slow introduction :n which the themes of the main part of the movement are adumbrated; they are subsequently developed with ingenuity and resource. Harold Rutland

: THE CRAZY JANE POEMS OF W. B. YEATS

Read by Siobhan McKenna
Arranged and introduced by Peter Duval Smith
The idea of Crazy Jane was suggested to Yeats by a peasant woman in the West of Ireland who was an acquaintance of Lady Gregory's. She is the c.ntra] character in nine of the lyrics in the sequence Words for Music Perhaps, which was published by the Cuala Press in 1933. A similar impulse inspired certain other poems in this volume, as well as several of the poems in ' A Woman Young and Old ' (published as part of The Winding Stair in 1933) and in Last Poems (1939).

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.

Welcome to BBC Genome

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.
