: Mr. H. Isherwood KAy-The Goya Centenary

TN Francisco Goya y Lucientes, the centenary of whose death is being celebrated this year, Spain possessed one of the few great painters that the eighteenth century produced. Born in 1746, he lived through the days of Spain's decline and the Napoleonic invasions, and his pictures form a vivid record both of the personalities and of the manners of the day. Mr. Isherwood Kay , who will talk on his work tonight, is a lecturer at the National Gallery and the author of the Burlington monograph on Spanish Art.

SIMON BOCCANEGRA is one of the few instances of an Opera's proving a failure. and being remodelled and rescored, and provided with a new libretto-rather like the knife that was ' the same knife, only for a new handle and a new blade.'
Boito, Verdi's friend (himself a composer of Opera), was the new librettist who laboured at refitting the work nearly a quarter of a century after its first production in 1857. In this air the unhappy father, whose daughter has been cruelly taken from him, begs her, in Heaven, to pray for him.
VAARLAM, in the Opera Boris Godounov , is a wandering, dissolute monk. In this song he tells of the glorious days ' Long ago at Kasan where I was fighting,' when Tsar Ivan harried the Tartars in that city, drove mines beneath it, and blew up forty thousand of the hated enemy —so Vaarlam says.
TF Tchaikovsky had not written a Sixth Symphony—the Pathetic—his Fifth would have been acknowledged as the most complete example of unrestricted musical romancing that was ever put together by the hand of a thorough musician. The First Movement contributes much of the evidence for this verdict. It has a slow and gloomy Introduction, and then the main business is set going with a jerky swinging tune in a pronounced rhythm. The movement contains some pages of glowing eloquence.
TULES MASSENET was one of those fortunate people who find their life-work quickly, and are able to apply their gifts to the very best advantage. His early successes at the Paris Conservatoire were repeated as soon as he began to write Operas. At the age of thirty-four he received the decoration of the Legion of Honour, and two years later he became a member of the Academy of Fine Arts-the youngest member ever elected. He always knew how to hit the Parisian taste. Not many of his works have survived in England, but the Opera Manon was long a favourite at Co vent Garden.
Massenet wrote incidental music' for a play by Leconte do Lisle, Les Erinnyes (The Furies), dealing with the tragedy of Orestes, who murdered his mother Klytemnestra to avenge her murder of his father. The Furies, as the instruments of vengeance, torment Orestes. !
We are to hear three pieces of Ballot
Music from The Furies—a Grecian Dance, The Trojan Maiden's Lament for her Country, and a Bacchanal.








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.
