MIDLAND ORCHESTRA
Leader, Alfred Cave
Conducted by LESLIE HEWARD The autograph score of Mozart's little known, but very delightful, Symphony in B flat (K.319) is dated ' Salzburg, July 9, 1779 '. Remarking on the cheerful character of the symphony as a whole, Jahn remarks that ' it is a true child of Mozart's whimsical imagination, lively, full of grace and feeling '. It was originally written in three movements. The minuet was added later.
An interesting feature of the work is the unusual construction of the trio on a phrase played by the oboes in the minuet itself.
Georges Enesco is a Rumanian, who began to play the violin at the age of four, and at seven made his first efforts at composition. He was sent to Vienna where he studied the violin under Professor Hellmesberger, and harmony and counterpoint under Robert Fuchs. Later Enesco went to Paris, where he joined Marsick's violin class and studied composition under Massenet and, later, under Faure. Since that time he has won international success as a violinist, composer, and conductor.
Enesco's Suite, Op. 9, which shows his classical leanings, received its first performance in 1903.

Tonight four composers of very different types and periods are to be contrasted.
One - Franz Lehar, representing romantic music, from "The Merry Widow" waltz to "You are my heart's delight".
Two - Howard Talbot, representing old musical comedy. He wrote the music for "The Mousmé" and "The Arcadians" with Lionel Monckton.
Three - Nat D. Aver, representing old-time revue. He wrote the music for "The Bing Boys", which was the rage in London during the War, with song hits like "Baby Bunting" and "The only girl in the world".
Four - Arthur Schwartz, representing new-time revue. He wrote numbers in "The House that Jack Built" and "Stop Press", to say nothing to writing the music for the newest revue of all, "Follow The Sun", which opened at the Adelphi Theatre, London, on February 4. Listeners will remember the first-night broadcast.
"Songs from the Shows" will be repeated in the Regional programme tomorrow at
4.15

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
