Some of .JOHANN STRAUSS'S Favourite Waltzes
The WIRELESS SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA,
Conducted by PERCY PITT
WHEN wo speak of ' Johann Strauss' we usually mean ' the younger,' for this
Johann, following in father's footsteps, eclipsed him, notable composer of dance music though ho was, and became- the most popular musician in Vienna in the middle- of the last century.
The father did not wish his sons to go into his profession, so a Savings Bank was like to have swallowed up young Johann. But waltzes ran in the blood, and would come out. He had been writing them since he was six, and for over sixty years (till he died in ]899) he poured them forth, with enormous success. Altogether he wrote about 480 dances, and to-night we are to hear some of the best of the waltzes that in the old days took Europe by storm, and earned their Composer the proud title of The Waltz King.'

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.

Welcome to BBC Genome
