Relayed from The Pavilion, Bournemouth (Symphonic Poem on a story by HANS ANDERSEN)
(Conducted by PEDRO MORALES)
'THE STORY OF A MOTHER,' by a Spanish composer comparatively new to listeners, was inspired by the story of the same name by Hans Andersen. It is a wistful little sketch of a dying child, and the grief and later resignation of its mother.
ONE of the most esteemed of Spanish composers, Joaquin Turina, was born at Seville in 1882, but had most of his musical training in Paris, his career in this and some other respects running curiously parallel with that of Falla. His name is, indeed, often associated with that of the latter, but though there is a certain general affinity in their music, there are also unmistakable differences, each having a distinct and decided personality of his own.
' The Gospel of the Nativity ' might be described as a miniature symphonic poem illustrating the following episodes or stages of the sacred story : I. On the road to Bethlehem; 2. The Nativity; 3. The Valley of the Shepherds ; 4. The Adoration of the Shepherds ; 5. The Magi crossing the Desert; 6. The Adoration of the Magi.
The music is idyllic in character and very simple in treatment.

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.
