THE BBC NORTHERN ORCHESTRA

Synopsis

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.
Leader, ALFRED BARKER
Conductor, T. H. MORRISON
The Polish composer, Moritz Mosz kowski, who died in Paris in 1925, is best known to listeners by music of the lighter type, his Serenata, his piano-duets, ' From Foreign Parts ', and the ballet music (particularly the ' Malaguefia ') from his opera Boabdil.
This Suite, dedicated to the Royal
Philharmonic Society of London, the first of two such compositions, is a good example of his more serious vein, and will probably give listeners to whom it is unknown an enhanced respect for Moszkowski's skill as a craftsman. The charming, scherzo-like second movement and the graceful Intermezzo (No. 4) are as pretty as anything he ever wrote, while the brilliant ' perpetuum mobile ' finale is full of novel effects. But most listeners will probably agree that the gem of the Suite is the set of variations that constitutes the third movement.

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.
