PART 11.
A S a boy of twelve, Elgar wrote some music for a children's play. In 1907 he revived this, and arranged it for a Full Orchestra, in the form of two Suites. We are to hear some of the pieces from the Second of these.
March. This. the opening movement of the Second Suite, begins in the time-honoured way, with the Drums. Then the Violins begin the Tune. There is a light and dainty Trio, followed by the return of the March, and these two are used in alternation.
The Little Bells. This calls for little description. Now the woodwind, now Strings, suggest to us fairy bells, while one bigger bell booms through.
Moths and Butterflies (Dance). Here light, fluttering figures on Flutes, Oboes, Clarinets. Harp and Strings picture for us these dancing creatures.
Fountain Dance. Very rapid figures for Muted Strings and light Woodwind suggest the playing waters.
The Tam Bear and The Wild Bear. Tho tame creature calls for just as big an orchestra as his more uncouth companions, and all seem to have a liking for Big Drum, Cymbals, and, particularly, Tambourine.


Conducted By: Lieut. B. Walton O'Donnell

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.
