: 'MUSIC AND MOUNTAINS'

A programme of gramophone records, presented by A. Hyatt King
Listeners will remember A. Hyatt King's recent programme of gramophone records on ' Star Variations ' with music by Mozart. This afternoon he is to illustrate the interesting subject of ' Music and Mountains '. Mr. King should speak with considerable authority, as he is both an experienced musician (an authority on Mozart) and a keen mountaineer, having travelled extensively in the Alps and in Greece. Mr. King was educated at Dulwich and Cambridge, taking a degree in classics.

: BBC ORCHESTRA

Led by Marie Wilson
Conducted by Malcolm Sargent
Eileen Joyce (piano)
Saint-Saens wrote five piano concertos, all of which were very popular twenty-five years ape. The one that is still retained in the repertoire and still soothes the savage breasts of present-day audiences is the No. 2 in G minor.
It is a facile and brilliant work full of singable melodies which are treated with the utmost clarity.
There is certainly nothing profound about the music, but it is a most effective show-piece for the virtuoso.

Le matin dans la campagne,
Danses; Paysages de montagnes;
Fete populaire
Jongen Joseph Jongen , the Belgian composer, was born at Liege in 1873. He studied at the Liege Conservatoire, where he was professor of harmony from 1901-1920, when he went to the Brussels Conservatoire as professor of fugue and counterpoint. After five years he was appointed Principal.
In his early works; written between 1902 and 1914, Jongen is deeply influenced by César Franck, but his later works show him to be one of the most individual of modern composers.

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 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 find thousands of radio and TV programmes that are already available to view or listen to on the BBC website.

This is a historical record of both 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
