: B.B.C. PROMENADE CONCERT

Relayed from the Queen's Hall
(Sole Lessees, Messrs. Chappell and Co., Ltd.)
Last Concert of the Season
Sir HENRY WOOD and his SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA ELSIE SUDDABY (Soprano)
KEITH FALKNER (Bass-Baritone)
SEYMOUR WHINYATES (Violin)
TN the FIRST MOVEMENT of this Concerto (Very quick, impassioned) there are two main themes. The first is given out at once, at a high pitch, by the Solo Violin. The Second (which is delayed for some time) is a placid melody played by a quartet of Flutes and Clarinets (Clarinets at first on the top), whilst below, the Soloist sustains his lowest note.
Most of the Movement is made out of these two tunes. At the end, if there is on break, a Bassoon is left suspended on a long-held note, which leads into-
The SECOND MOVEMENT (Moving gently). This is a sort of exalted ' Song without Words.'
Following on the Second Movement there is a passage of meditation and indecision for Strings (led by the Soloist), then, with a preliminary fanfare, we are plunged into the exuberant, dancing Finale.
THOSE who know the Ballet Scheherazade will note that its story is very different from that which Rimsky-Korsakov originally chose for illustration. He selected four of the Arabian Nights tales as the basis of his work, but did not set out to illustrate their happenings closely. The Sultana, the bewitching teller of the tales to her lord the Sultan, is represented by a Violin theme of improvisatory style, that comes in many times in the course of the Suite.
The four separate pieces are entitled :—
The Sea and Sinbad's Ship; The Story of the Kalendar Prince; The Young Prince and Princess and (a) The Festival at Bagdad ; (b) The Sea ; Shipwreck. Conclusion. There is a fine storm in this.

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.
