: BEATRICE EVELINE (Violoncello) and AURIOL JONES (Pianoforte)

THIS is one of Chopin's earliest works, and though it is fluent and graceful, it does not contain a great deal of his individuality. He wrote to a friend about it : 'It is nothing more than a brilliant drawing-room piece such ns pleases ladies' It was dedicated to one
Joseph Mert , of whom Chopin once wrote : ' He is the only Violoncellist I really respect.'

PfANO DUETS interpreted by CECIL DixoN and V. HELY HUTCHINSON
Italian Overture. March in B Minor
THE story goes that Schubert, after hearing
Rossini's Operas, wrote his Overture in the Italian Style to show how easily that sort of music could be made up. There is in the work (and in a companion Overture that ho produced about the same time) a good deal of Rossinian pomposity and harmonic economy, and his trick of working up to a climax by repeating a little phrase of a few bars. Near the end there is a hint of a greater master-Mozart, and just a glimpse of Schubert's own face.

An Opera in One Act
Libretto by Arthur R. Cleveland Music by Napoleon Lambelet Cast :
Hugh Langton (Lieutenants ofYeomanry)
Philip Esmond
Chorus of Villagers, Yeomanry, Traders, Show-men, Gipsies, Schoolboys, etc.
Scene: A Pleasure Fair in the Market Place of a small Devonshire Town
THIS Light Opera deals with the topic (of which, apparently, neither the composers nor the frequenters of Light Opera ever tire) of love among the gipsies.
It was first produced, with great success, at the London Coliseum in 1905. To-night it is to be conducted by the composer, Mr. Napoleon Lambelet , who was for many years musical director at the Alhambra and several of the most famous West End theatres. Amongst his other compositions are The Yashmak, The Transit of Venus, Pot Pourri, and The Shadow Dance : all of which were produced between 1897 and 1901, and Valentine, which was done at the Strand Theatre in 1918. Mr. Lambelet was born at Corfu and educated at the Naples Conservatoire, and his first piece, M. Pardarmenos , was produced at Athens in 1890.

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.

Welcome to BBC Genome

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.
