A Light Orchestral Concert

(Leader, S. KNEALE KELLEY ) Conducted by JOHN ANSELL
QTRADELLA was that seventeenth-century composer about whom there grew up a story (which may or may not be true) to the effect that he eloped with a lady and was followed by assassins, who were so moved by hearing some of his music that they repented of their evil intention, and spared his life. Stradella, however, was murdered later, so the tale goes.
On this exciting story Flotow wrote an Opera when-he was twenty-five (in 1837). It was first brought out as a lyric drama, and then adapted as a Grand Opera, and as such, produced at Hamburg and Drury Lane.
The Overture shows Flotow's best quality— the capacity to write flowing melody. There is a gently moving Introduction, and then the main body of the Overture begins with a declamatory phrase, going on to a jovial, dancing theme. From this material the Overture is brightly built up, and a sonorous Coda brings it to a conclusion.

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.
