: THE LINDON WIND TRIO:

George Barrett (flute) ; Lucy Vincent
(oboe); Arthur Roberts (pianoforte)
GEOFFREY DAMS (tenor)
(From Birmingham)
The two interlinked French Folk
Melodies were originally an Intermezzo in Dame Ethel Smyth 's One-Act Opera,
Entenie Cordiale, the subject of which isan absurd incident in a British Base i Camp during the Great War.
The first of the two melodies is a 3urgundian vintage song : the beautifu second tune, in the minor is Breton and full of characteristic Breton melancholy. Johann Quantz , an accomplished flute player and prolific composer for that instrument, is better known to fame as the man who taught the King of Prussia,
Frederick the Great, how to play the flute. During his years of service as 'Kammermusicus' at the Prussian Court he wrote not fewer than 300 nute conceitos and 200 other pieces. Out of all these manuscripts only a handful have passed into print. Quantz lived from 1697 to 1773.

Students' Song Book
John Farmer (1836-1901) was music master at Harrow School from 1862-1885, and later organist in Balliol College, Oxford. At Harrow, Farmer did some very fine work, and as a pioneer he was largely influential in raising the status of music, and its appreciation, in the public schools of this country.
This famous song, ' Forty Years On ', has long been established as the Harrow School Song, and as such has endeared itself to all Harrovians, past and present, for the last sixty years.

ORCHESTRA
8.0 Overture, Egmont
Beethoven's Overture and incidental music of Goethe's ' Egmont' were completed in 1810, and therefore represent the composer at the height of his powers. As a piece of dramatic writing in terms of ' pure ' music and for fertility of invention and imaginative treatment, this overture has few, if any, equals outside perhaps one or two other similar works by Beethoven himself. *
Indeed, Beethoven's music perfectly expresses Motley's description of Egmont in his ' Rise of the Dutch Republic ' : ' terrible and sudden in wrath ... a splendid soldier, whose evil star destined him to tread, as a politician, a dark and dangerous path, in which not even genius, caution, and integrity could ensure success, but in which rashness, alternating with hesitation, could not fail to bring ruin '. The music also depicts the final tragedy of Kginont when he meets death on the scaffold.
MAY BLYTH AND ORCHESTRA
8.9 Recit. and Aria, Thou monstrous fiend (Fidelio)
Florestan, a political prisoner in a Spanish fortress, is being slowly starved to death by his implacable enemy Pizarro, the prison governor. He is reported as dead to his wife, Leonora. She doubts the reports and has taken service, disguised as a boy, with Rocco, a gaoler of the prison. Pizarro has decided, however, to make sure of Florestan's death and orders Rocco to kill him. Leonora overhears their plans. It is at this point that she sings this great operatic aria. She declaims against Pizarro, the monstrous fiend, tiger-like, utterly inhuman, but even in the midst of her horror she will not harbour despair and apostrophising Hope, she implores some succour to support her in her terrible trial.

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

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.
