ORCHESTRA
Overture, ' Froissart '
THE Overture, named after the great fourteenth-century chronicler, has as motto the words of Keats : —
' When Chivalry
Lifted up her lance on high.'
The theme of chivalry as the basis for a work came into the Composer's mind through the scene in Scott's ' Old Mortality' in which Claverhouse tells of his enthusiasm for Froissart, who ' with true chivalrous feeling ... confines his beautiful expressions of sorrow to the death of the gallant and high-bred Knight; of whom it was a pity to see the fall, such was his loyalty to his king. pure faith to his religion, hardihood towards his enemy, and fidelity to his lady-love.' Introduction and Allegro for Solo String Quartet and String Orchestra. Op. 47
ELGAR, in this work, uses, with beautiful effect, the contrasts between a String Orchestra and a Quartet of Solo Strings-two Violins, Viola and 'Cello.
The Introduction hints at the various tunes with which the whole work is to be built. Towards its close the Welsh (or Welsh-like) time is gently played by the solo Viola. Agitation follows and quickly leads us into the impassioned Allegro.

First ' Wand of Youth ' Suite Tone Poem ' Polonia '
AS a boy of twelve, Elgar wrote some music for a children's play. In 1907 he revived this and arranged it in two Suites for full orchestra. The First of these contains: (1) Overture; (2) Serenade ; (3) Minuet ; (4) Sun Dance ; (5) Fairy Pipers; (6) Fairies and Giants.
' DOLONIA ' was written during the first year
* of the war, as a tribute to Poland and with a dedication to Paderewski. It was first played at a concert at the Queen's Hall in aid of the Polish Victims' Relief Fund.
Most of the tunes used are Polish melodies, but an obvious exception is the typically Elgarian tune near the opening-majestic and noble (and marked in the score with Elgar's favourite temn of expression, nobilimente). Thero are also references to Chopin's Nocturne in G Minor and to Paderewski's Polish Fantasia.

Overture, ' In the South'
Contrasts— The Gavotte, 1700-1900
IN THE SOUTH-ALASSIO is a musical record of impressions of Italy — more especially of ' a glorious afternoon in the Vale of Andora,' with snow-tipped mountains on the horizon, and the blue Mediterranean, and with thoughts of the strife and power of the old Roman civilization, suggested by the ruins at hand.
The tunes out of which In the South is constructed are all Elgar's own. One of them in the middle, a tune of pastoral feeling, has been spoken of as an Italian folk-time, but the Composer states that this is an error.
The Overture was first heard at the Covent Garden Elgar Festival of 1904.

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.
