What is arguably the world's greatest classical music festival gets under way tonight at the Royal Albert Hall in London with a host of international soloists joining the BBC Symphony Orchestra and their chief conductor Jiri Belohlavek.
Renowned organist Wayne Marshall begins proceedings on the venue's historic organ by playing Richard Strauss 's Festliches Präludium, while electrifying Finnish soprano Karita Mattila sings the composer's Four Last Songs. Acclaimed pianist Pierre-Laurent Aimard plays Beethoven's Rondo in B flat major for piano and orchestra, and charismatic Nicholas Daniel performs Mozart's Oboe Concerto in C, K314.
Tonight's entertainment also sees the launch of the centenary celebrations of composers Olivier Messiaen and Elliott Carter. It will feature Messiaen's Dieu parmi Nous, the majestic finale to La Nativité du Seigneur, and the UK premiere of Carter's brilliant toccata Caténaires for solo piano. The concert will conclude with Alexander Scriabin's powerful The Poem of Ecstasy.

A Recital

MARGARET ELWES (Soprano)
SOLOMON (Pianoforte)
MARGARET ELWES is the daughter of that very distinguished singer, Gervase Elwes , whose tragic death at the age of fifty-five was a loss deeply felt, not only by his host of friends but by the whole of the British musical public. The esteem in which Elwes was held was du& as much to his personal qualities as to the sensitive temperament which made him so fine an interpreter of Oratorio and Lieder. He was a great Bach singer and was particularly fond of Brahms, and he is par...ticularly remembered for his beautiful rendering of the tenor part in Elgar's Dream of Gerontius, a work with which ho was most deeply in sympathy. There is no doubt that he had a remarkable influence on the higher cultivation of refined and intelligent singing in this country, and by close attention to diction and interpretation he lifted the art of singing on to a far higher plane than it had ever reached before. Visitors to Queen's Hall will have noted that a bust has been placed in a niche at the back of the Grand Circle, to commemorate his memory, and a Gervase Elwes Memorial Fund was founded not long ago with the object of assisting young musicians. Miss Elwes carries on a fine tradition.
SOLOMON has already held his position among the world's foremost pianists long enough to make us forget both how young he still is and what an amazing child prodigy he was. He 'was only eight when he made his first important appearance, playing that big and difficult work, the Tchaikovsky Pianoforte Concerto, with the Queen's Hall Orchestra in London in a way which many a mature artist might well have envied. That was in 1911, and since then he has played whereever good music is made. But, though the whole world admires him and his playing, he can always count on a specially warm welcome from London, his native city. It must be as real a pleasure to himself to play to his own people as it is a source of pride to Londoners to claim him as a fellow citizen.

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.
