(By kind permission of Lieut.-Col. V. M. Fortune, D.S.O., and Officers). Conducted by Edward Grayson, A.R.C.M.

Brilliant Waltz - Chopin
The Piper's Parade

March; Strathspey; Reel
Three Symphonic Dances - Grieg

The rhythms and melodic idioms of peasant song in Norway were never long absent from Grieg's music. He did not often use actual folk-songs, but cast his pieces in the style of folk-music, sometimes decking them out in the gayest colours of the orchestra, as in these Symphonic Dances, in which we find much of pastoral joy, and sometimes, we may feel, just a trace of the gentle melancholy in nature.

Suite, 'The Seasons' - Glazounov

Glazounov was reported dead during the Russian Revolution, but he came safely through it, and was decorated by the Government as 'People's Artist of the Republic'. He is known to us chiefly as a prolific writer of large works for the concert hall, but occasionally he has composed music for the stage. The Seasons was written for a Ballet. There are in the Suite made from this work a Barcarolle, a Waltz, a Slow Movement and a final Bacchanal.

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.
