HALFDANKJERULF was one of the earliest to give Norwegian music a place of its own in the concerts of Europe ; in his youth Norway was in the throes of its own struggle for freedom. His father had an important official post and he himself was intended for a legal career. But on the death of his father in 1840, when young Kjerulf was twenty-five, he threw himself whole-heartedly into music as a profession, and published the first of his songs before he had any real instruction. Grieg owed a good deal to his support and encouragement, and something of the same simple sincerity which we recognize in Grieg's music is to be heard in Kjerulf's. He was at his best as a composer of vocal music either for solo voices or chorus, and, as setting forth something of the national sentiment, many of these are still held in affection and reverence in his own country. His death in 1868 was made the occasion of something very like national mourning

: 'I Remember That

By DEREK McCULLOCH
It might mean
(a) ' I remember that Gladstone said we had a tendency to or (b) ' I remember that we were awfully keen about perhaps
(c) ' I always remember that my Father told me-'
Whereas, it is none of these, but merely,
'I I remember that '
' Come into the garden, Maud '
' On a bicycle made for two '
' These were the songs my Mother sang '
And we'll sing 'em tonight for you !

WELL and honourably known not only in his own country, but abroad too, as a composer of many really beautiful songs, Roger Quilter is no less thoroughly at home in composing for the orchestra.
Although the subjects he chooses, and his treatment of them, are in every way as English as the work of any native composer, the great part of his musical education was carried out in Germany, at Frankfort. Iwan Knorr, one of the most distinguished teachers of the generation which has just passed, was his master for composition, and to the very thorough training on which the German schools insist Quilter no doubt owes the ease and certainty with which he deals with the orchestra.
He first came into prominence as a composer of Shakespeare songs ; soon after his return to this country, the songs from Twelfth Night and As You Like It aroused wide interest, not only for their finely lyrical qualities, but for the way in which, they captured something of Shakespeare's own English spirit. For the most part settings of the finest English lyrics, his songs have appealed to all the best singers of our time, and the late Gervase Elwes, to name only one distinguished instance of a singer who chose only the best music, was a sincere admirer of Quiltor's work.
These Three English Dances, a fine example of his melodious and graceful style, are scored for quite a small orchestra. A comparatively early work, it made its first appearance at a ' Prom ' in 1910.

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.
