A Military Band Concert


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.
MEGAN THOMAS (Soprano) ; GLYN EASTMAN (Baritone)
A S a boy of twelve, Elgar wrote some music for a children's play. In 1907 he revised this, and arranged it for Full Orchestra, in the form of two Suites. We are to hear the second of these, in an arrangement for Military Band. It contains the following : March, The Little Bells, Moths and Butterflies, Fountain Dance, The Tame Bear and the Wild Bears.
GOLDMARK'S work is really a Suite of pieces. threaded together by a common idea, rather than a full-dress Symphony. It has five Movements, of which we are to hear arrangements of the Second and Third-romantic pieces that show the composer's skill in light music.
Goldmark is one of those musicians who are remembered only by one or two works. He made a great hit fifty years ago with the Opera The Queen of Sheba, but was never able all the rest of his life to write another work that was anything like so successful.


Conducted By: B. Walton O'Donnell
Soprano: Megan Thomas

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.
