1. The Plough 2. The Orphan 3. The Question 4. The Journey 5. The Farewell
6. The Wedding MR. ARNOLD FULTON first performed these songs with The London Select Choir at the last concert of the Ninth Annual Festival of the International Society for Contemporary Music in 1931, which was broadcast from Queen's Hall.
The music of Szymanovski, who was born in Poland in 1883, is strongly national in flavour and the six songs to be performed this evening are folk songs from the Kurpic woodland. The tunes are taken from W. Skierkowski's collection of Kurpic folk-songs.
Szymanovski is one of the leaders of contemporary Polish music. As a composer he began as a disciple of Strauss, Scriabine, and Reger, but very quickly asserted a strong individuality of his own. Having written three symphonies, a violin concerto, an opera, piano sonata, and a number of songs, he fell under the influence of Polish folk-song which has considerably influenced the style of his later compositions.
The composer is also one of the founders of the Polish Society for New Music of which he is the Honorary President. In 1930 he was appointed Rector of the State Academy of Music, and also was awarded an honorary degree of Doctor of Philosophy of the Cracow Academy. PAUL HERMANN

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.
