: PROMENADE CONCERT

Relayed from the Queen's
Hall Sir HENRY WOOD and his Symphony ORCHESTRA
MARIAN ANDERSON (Soprano)
FRANCIS RUSSELL (Tenor)
VICTOR HELY HUTCHINSON (Pianoforte)
ALEXANDER TANSMAN , a young Pole, began to compose at nine, studied both music and law at Warsaw, and had his Symphonic
Serenade for Strings played when he was fifteen. In 1919 he won a national prize for composition, and in 1920 went to live in Paris. He is a prolific composer, having written music for plays, Ballets, an Opera, a Symphonic Poem, a Symphony, music for Chamber Orchestra, String Quartets, Pianoforte pieces, Sonatas for Strings, and Songs.
His Pianoforte Concerto, produced by Koussevitsky in 1926, is in four Movements, the Slow Movement being second and a short Scherzo third. The first two make some use of the idiom of Polish folk songs.
THE music is founded on a poem of the Hungarian writer, Lenau (1802-1850). He presents the Don as a. man in search of an ideal woman, in whom ho can enjoy all perfections. He is continually disappointed, and finds nothing but weariness in all his adventures. At length Disgust (for thus is Satan figured in this version) brings an end to his adventures.
We find, then, in the music all the moods of Don Juan-his youthful fire, the maidenly charm of women, and then the philanderer's disappointment and spiritual defeat.

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.

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.
