Borodin's Prince Igor ranks among the finest of operas on national subjects. The story has been called ' The King Arthur ' legend of Russia ; it is based on twelfth-century chronicles compiled by a monk, and it is difficult to know how far they are legend and how far real history. The overture begins with a slow movement, before the vigorous main theme makes its appearance. Its impetuosity gives way to a much quieter second tune, played first as a horn solo and though other tunes appear, notably on the basses, it is the first and its energetic rhythm which dominate most of the Overture.
Jan Blockx , a Belgian composer who died in 1912, was Director of Antwero Conservatoire. Outstanding among his compositions in all forms were his operas, two at least of which became widely known.

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.
Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and
is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to
obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in
programmes, online etc.
This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers,
images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio
Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available
externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
