: RUSSIAN PROGRAMME

THE STRING BAND OF THE ROYAL ARTILLERY : Conducted by Capt. E. C. STRETTON , M.V.O., Director of Music, R.A.
DIMSKY KORSAKOF was one of the band of Russian ' nationalist' composers who based their works largely on legend and folklore, or the incidents of Russian history. The Czar's Bride, a tragic Opera in lyrical style, was first produced privately in Moscow in 1899. A LIFE FOR THE
CZAR was the first Opera of Glinka (1804-1837), the pioneer of Russian musical art. Before his time the country s only art-music (as" distinguished from her wealth of folk-tunes) had been imported Italian Opera. This work deals with the attempts of Russia's enemies to capture the Emperor and overthrow tho Empire.

: THE BEAR

A Jest in One Act by Anton Tchekov. Translated by Constance Garnett. Presented by R. E. JEFFREY
Characters :
The action takes place in a drawing-room in Madame Popov's house.
IT is twenty-two years since the death of Anton Tchekov , the great Russian dramatist and novelist, but it is only of recent years that his genius has been fully reeognized in this country. The Cherry Orchard, it will be remembered, had an extremely 'successful run at the Lyric Theatre, Hammersmith, and, whilst it aroused considerable controversy, it definitely established Tchekov, in the opinion of the majority of those previously unacquainted with his work, as one of the outstanding figures in the history of the modern drama.
This little play, The Bear, was first produced, in Tchekov's lifetime, in 1889. It was recently done in London, at the Everyman Theatre, Hampstead.

BAND THE music of this Russian composer of our time has clear individuality, though it is more closely linked to the nineteenth century than that of most modern Composers, and more cosmopolitan and ' classical ' than the art of most Russians.

: STRAUSS'S SONGS

Sung by VIVIENNE CHATTERTON
Ach Lieb , Ich muss nun Seheiden (My Love, I must now leave thee), Op. 21
Die Frauen sind oft fromm und still (My Lady's Holy Quiet), Op. 21
Heimliche Aufforderung (Secret Persuasion), Op. 27
Ruhe meine Seele (Rest My Soul), Op. 27 Cacilie (Cecily), Op. 27
ACH Lieb, ich muss nun scheiden is a mournful song of farewell. It is short and of simple outline.
Die Frauen sind oft fromm und still is a homage to woman in general and not to one woman in particular. ',She is weak; a puff of air will bend her. But she sees farther than we do. There is strength in her prayer?. This is a rhapsodical song. The ending, with its high chords fading away into the distance, is expressive.
Heimliche Aufforderung starts off with a genial tune-' Eat, drink and be merry, love, on the festive day ! ' Soon the voice is lowered-' But afterwards we will steal forth into the garden together.' The whispering tone becomes more glowing, but the song ends in tranquillity.
Ruhe, meine Scele is not a love-song. This is a change. Strauss had to use what lyrics offered themselves in his country's literature, and most German lyrists are stricken either with love or with grief. In this case the wound is to be stanched.
In Cacilie Strauss indulges to the full his habit of heroic, exultant melody with a rushing, turbulent accompaniment and plunging modudulation. The song foreshadowed a style that was to be typical in Strauss's later works.

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.
