Variations on Mary had a Little Lamb ' in the styles of Ten Composers .. Edward Ballantine
Mozart : Agnelletto in C
Beethoven : Adagio (der Griifin von Lämmlein-
Plutchsky (dedicated to the Countess Lämmlein-Plutchsky)
Schuhert : Demi moment musical Chopin : Nocturne (Posthumous)
Wagner; Sacrificial Scene and Festmahl from the Tenth Act of Lammfell Tchaikovsky : Valse Funebre (Funeral Waltz) Grieg : Mruks Klonh Lmbj MacDowell : 'At a Lamb '
' Far off awhere the Keltic sun
Doth fold its fading feet.
A lassie croons a pedal point,
A lamb suspends a bleat.
Debussy : The Evening of a Lamb
Liszt : Grand Concert Study ' for the two hands, the arms, the shoulders and the liair '
MR. BALLANTINE, the Composer of these
MR parodies, is an American Composer,, n member of the musical staff at the University of Harvard.
Parody in music is not very common. It is more difficult here than in n literary parody to avoid mere imitation of u composer's mannerisms, and to give instead a synthesis of his style, as we get it in J. C. Squire's or Owen Seaman 's parodies. The slightly broader manner of Bret Harte '.s Condensed Novels is perhaps more fitting. The effects must. almost necessarily, be clear-cut and the points quickly made.
In most of the imitations in this piece (which is published by Hawkes) the music and the titles speak for themselves.

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.
