JOHN TURNER

9.50 ORCHESTRA
Finale from ' Irish ' Symphony
WHEN Sullivan came home from Leipzig after completing his period of study as Mendelssohn Scholar, he had to east about for work, like most young musicians. Later in life, speaking of this time, he said: I was ready to undertake anything that came in my way-symphonies, overtures, ballets, anthems, hymn-tunes, songs, part-songs, a concerto for the 'cello, and eventually comic and light operas.'
His Irish Symphony (the only work he wrote in that form) belongs to this period. It was sketched during a visit to Ireland when he was twenty-one.
There are in the work four Movements, of which we are to hear the last-a vigorous, well-sustained affair.

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.
