: BALLAD CONCERT

MARJORIE FFRANGçoN-DAVIES (Soprano)
OF the sixty-three poems in A. E. Housman's
A Shropshire Lad, some half-dozen or so have been set to music many times. Several song-writers of our time-Vaughan Williams, Ireland, George Butterworth, Dr. Arthur Somerveil, and others, have selected for musical treatment certain of the poems that specially appealed to them.
The first of Dr. Somervell's songs is that in which the poet begins :- ' Loveliest of trees, the cherry now
Is hung with bloom along the bough. And stands about the woodland ride Wearing white for Eastertide.'
The third song tells how a soldier, marching along the street, turns and looks at the speaker. who, though ' we're like to meet no more,' sends him a message of goodwill-' dead or living, drunk or dry, soldier, I wish you well.' ,

: DEZSO KORDY (Violoncello)

FROM childhood upwards Chopin loved the tunes that he heard sung and played around his Polish home, and perhaps even more he loved the folk-dances. More thai* a quarter of his compositions bear titles which indicate their origin in dance rhythms and dance forms. The Mazurka and the Polonaise are the two types of composition in which Chopin most clearly shows his affection for the native dances of his country. As he treats the former dance, it shows us the folk-spirit sublimated, idealized. The peasant has come to town. He retains all the vigorous directness of his- origin, but combines with it a high degree of refinement, and sometimes a tinge of unexpected emotion, as in the somewhat melancholy opening of this A minor Mazurka. In the Polonaises we have the grandeur and love of ceremony of the old Polish ruling class. This Polonaise, in A flat, is by common consent classed among the most inspired and inspiriting music Chopin ever wrote.

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.
