: AN AFTERNOON CONCERT

MURIEL MORGAN (Soprano)
MONTAGUE BREARLEY (Violin)
ROBERT NAYLOR (Tenor)

: Mr. J. C. SQUIRE: Modern Poets-II, Robert Bridges'

THE impervious silence of the Poet Laureate has become such an accepted fact that the younger generation has grown up, on the whole, quite unacquainted with his work, and to them he is probably known less by any of his own poetry than by his great anthology, The Spirit of Man.' In reality, however, Dr. Bridges is one of the few poets of our time who has recaptured the pure classical idea, and anybody who is induced to read him after hearing this talk will be grateful to Mr. Squire for a new conception of the beautiful that he will find he has acquired.

: WILLIAM HODGSON'S MARBLE ARCH PAVILION ORCHESTRA (Continued)

5.0 Holidays Abroad: Mr. GERALD BRENAN
' Spain—I'
NOW that so many of us aspire to holidays abroad, there is a widespread demand for helpful information about the holiday resorts of Europe ; not merely where are the cathedrals and casinos, the beaches and belfries and brasseries that one wants to visit when one gets to one's destination, but, first of all, all about the business of getting there-passports, customs, coinage, expenses, what to take and what to wear. All these matters, as well as the attractions of Spain itself, will be dealt with in Mr. Brenan's talk tonight. This talk is the first of a series of weekly Foreign Travel Talks — to be continued throughout the summer. Next Tuesday Mr. Brenan will conclude his advice oh touring in Spain. After that will come further talks on Italy, France, Holland, etc.

: THE FOUNDATIONS OF MUSIC

MODERN FRENCH PIANOFORTE MUSIC
(1900-1925)
Played by Mrs. NORMAN O'NEILL
THOUGH Gabriel Grovlez (bom 1879) began his career as a concert Pianist, ho has become best known as a Conductor of the Paris Opera and a Composer of songs, Pianoforte pieces, Symphonic Poems and Ballets. Ho has also collaborated in editing the great edition of Rameau's works, and has brought out two other excellent collections of old French Operatic airs and instrumental pieces.
The graceful Sarabande is one of a series of pieces collectively known as L'Almanach aux Images (The Picture Calendar), based on poems of ' Tristan Klingsor.' In verse and music the piece conjures up an impression of old-time grace and lino manners.
ROGER DUCASSE (born 1873), a pupil of Faure, won one of the Rome Prizes in 1902. Ho was one of the composers who, with Faure at their head, founded in 1910 the French Independent Music Society, a body interested in making known modern music. ,
FLORENT SCHMITT , another pupil of Faure (of Massenet also), and a Rome Prize winner, was born in 1870. Ho is known to us chiefly by a few chamber pieces, in some of which there is a curious tartness. His output includes a Tone Poem on Poe's The Haunted Palace, incidental music for Anthony and Cleopatra, church music, Ballets, etc.
DEODAT DE SEVERAC (1873-1921) seemed to find happy inspiration in open-air scones. Amongst his interests was folk-song collecting. His delicate fancy is charmingly illustrated in the Pianoforte Suites, of which the best known is In Languedoc. Cerdana, sub-titled Picturesque Studies, contains somoof his liveliest sketches. The Return of the Mule Driver8 is accompanied by cheerily tinkling bells. We hear the clattering of the hoofs, above which rises now and again a fragment of a folk song sung by the drivers.
7 25 Prof. A. Y. CAMPBELL : 'Greek Plays for
Modern Listeners-VI, Survivals and Influences.' S.B. from Liverpool
TN this series of talks Professor Campboll has explained the underlying ideas of classical Greek drama and illustrated their working out in the plays of the three great tragic dramatists— ?schylus, Sophocles and Euripides—and of Aristophanes the satirist, the Gilbert of ancient Greece. This evening he will conclude the series by surveying the later course of the Greek theatre ; the fusion of tragedy and comedy, the influence of Aristotle's theorizing, and tho value to modern readers of these plays written for audiences who lived more than two thousand years ago.

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.
