From Birmingham
Conducted by JOSEPH LEWIS
BOCCHERINI might be called, without disrespect, a wholesale music-merchant.
Probably no other composer in the world's history wrote such a mass of music in the ' classical ' forms-twenty Symphonies, fifty-four String Trios, ninety-five String Quartets, and one hundred and twenty-five String Quintets.
Among this lush growth Time with his sickle has, alas ! ruthlessly mowed. Of all these works few people know anything more than one or two detached pieces, among them a certain Minuet which has become famous. Boccherini had good matter in him. and it is pleasant to hear his graceful and facile music now and again.
THE first two 'Cello
Sonatas of Beethoven came out together as his Op. 5, when he was twenty-seven. Their plan is unusual, for there are only two Movements. both quick. One, introduced by a longish slow section, is based on two main themes, and the other is a Rondo. Beethoven seems to have been seeking a fresh plan for his work, but he did not pursue this scheme afterwards.
NORMAN O'NEILL 'S four Dances from the music to Maeterlinck's fairy play, The
Blue Bird (1009). have become 'popular as a Concert Suite.
The FIRST is the Dance of the Mist-Maids.
The mist shuts out the Land of Memory, and through it the children, Tyltyl and Mytyl, find their way.
The SECOND is a Dance of Fire and Water, who fight for supremacy.
The THIRD is the Dance of the Stars in the Palace of Night.
The LAST is the Dance of the Hours, who come out of the grandfather clock when Tyltyl turns the magic stone.

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.
