: A MILITARY BAND CONCERT

LINDA SEYMOUR (Contralto) MAURICE COLE (Pianoforte)
THE WIRELESS MILITARY BAND
Conducted by B. WALTON O'DONNELL
DRECIOSA, begun in 1820, a few weeks after
The Marksman (Der Freisch├╝tz) was finished, is in complete contrast to that Opera of German legend and homely sentiment. Preeiosa is a gipsy maid of Madrid, and the Overture to the Opera gives the Spanish atmosphere, its themes being derived from or founded on tunes that Weber got from Spanish soldiers after the Peninsular War. It brings in, according to Weber's fashion, some of the chief airs from the Opera. First we have a section in the' rhythm of the Spanish Bolero dance, then a march founded on a gipsy air, and finally, a fiery wind-up, ' indicating,' aa Weber himself said, 'the happy end of the piece, and endeavouring to bring together the characteristics of Spain and of Preciosa.'

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.
