Most of the music of Balfour Gardiner known to listeners was composed prior to the War, but a number of his works remain in the repertory and increase in popularity. This overture, remodelled from a comparatively early work, was performed for the first time in May, 1911, at Queen's Hal!, and has since become a familiar item in concerts of British music. Balfour Gardiner studied partly in Frankfort, and was there the colleague of Norman O'Neill. Roger Quitter,
Cyril Scott and Percy Grainger. He has always been very active in the interests of British music, and an older generation will remember with gratitude the important series of orchestral concerts devoted to the compositions of British musicians which he gave some twenty years ago. Sir Alexander Mackenzie, by reason of his long association with the Royal Academy of Music-he was its Principal for thirty-six years, retiring in 1924-exercised a very powerful influence, not only on the generation now in its maturity, but on a younger school of composers and executives actively practising today. Sir Alexander's crowded life has witnessed the progress of British music from the days when the influence of Mendelssohn was all-pervading, to the present day when British composers take their rightful place in the esteem of the world. To this status Mackenzie has contributed invaluably.

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.
