Universal and International Exhibition in Brussels

Relayed from the Palais des Beaux
Arts, Brussels
A few months ago the B B C Symphony Orchestra with Dr. Adrian Boult visited Brussels and gave a memorable concert at the Palais des Beaux Arts. The Belgian press acclaimed the orchestra to be comparable to the best in Europe, such as the Berlin Philharmonic and Vienna Philharmonic Orchestras.
There is no doubt that equal praise will be given to another great British Orchestra, the London Philharmonic Orchestra, which is being taken to Brussels by its conductor-in-chief, Sir Thomas Beecham , for two concerts forming a part of the entertainments of the International Exhibition there.
A noteworthy feature of the programmes is the predominance of British music, of which Bax's ' Garden of Fand ' and Elgar's ' Enigma ' Variations, to be heard this evening, are fine representative examples that are already well known to, and admired by, Continental audiences.
The ' Enigma' Variations was first performed in 1899, while the ' Garden of Fand ' dates from 1916. The latter was inspired by the old Irish mythological story of the lovely Fand who was the daughter of Mananan, the Celtic Neptune. Cuchulain, mightiest of legendary heroes, was lured by her away from his country, and from Emer, his wife, and held captive, until Emer made her way to Fand's enchanted island in the sea and prevailed on the goddess to give her back her hero.

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.
