CONTEMPORARY BRITISH COMPOSERS

Synopsis

We have produced a Style Guide to help editors follow a standard format when editing a listing. If you are unsure how best to edit this programme please take a moment to read it.
interpreted by GORDON BRYAN
ARNOLD BAx : A Hill Tune ; Country Tune ; Lullaby; In a Vodka Shop
A RNOLD BAX (born 1883). one of the foremost present-day composers, was trained at the Royal Academy of Music, studying composition under Frederick Corder. His music was first heard in public in 1903, and since then ho has written many large Choral, Orchestral and Chamber works, besides Piano pieces and many subtle and fragrant songs, in which there is often a wistful tenderness. He has a Celtic strain in him, and so it is not surprising that he has given us some sensitive and charming expressions of moods both in keyboard music and in songs.
In A Hill Tune the right hand sets up a soft rippling figure of accompaniment beneath which the left hand starts a tune of a quasi-Irish character.
In a Vodka Shop is a recollection of scenes witnessed during a trip to Russia. ' Coarse and rough' is the direction at the head of this piece.

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.
