: FAMOUS CLASSICS

THE AUGMENTED STATION ORCHESTRA, conducted by T. H. MORRISON
THIRST MOVEMENT (Moderately quick).—
-*- After a preliminary nourish on the Piano, the First Main Tune is given out. It consists chiefly of a little curt phrase in Woodwind, and a more suave phrase, which is at first given to Clarinet and Bassoon, and then repeated at great length. This whole (fairly long) Tune is repeated on the Piano. Then follows a longish passage of rapid work for the Piano and Strings and Woodwind. At the end of this there is something of a climax, and then comes the beautiful Second Main Tune.
SECOND Movement (Slow).-This is a brief, highly expressive Movement. It opens with a long tune given to Muted Strings. At the end of this the Piano enters with a long, rhapsodical passage (lightly accompanied). Eventually, Flute and Clarinet quietly suggest the Tune with which the Movement opened, and this the Piano then declaims at full length.
THIRD Movement (Quick and emphatic).-
A few soft, detached chords in the Orchestra, a very loud Piano flourish, and one loud chord (Full Orchestra), and we are plunged into a lively Dance. The Dance is interrupted for a time, whilst we hear, as it were in the distance, a song. The Dance soon returns and, at the end, the song-tune is declaimed loudly by Piano and Orchestra.

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.
