: A LIGHT ORCHESTRAL PROGRAMME

THE AUGMENTED STATION ORCHESTRA
Conducted by T. H. MORRISON
MOZART was a Freemason. Freemasonry was very much ' in the air ' at the time The Magic Flute was written, and all the curious plot of the Opera has Masonic ideas at its foundation.
There is much elaborate ceremonial in the Opera, and we boar suggestions of this in tho impression Introduction to the Overture, and also later in the course of the Overture.
After the Introduction, wo have the merry
First Main Tune. This is ‘fugal’—i.e., one ' voice ' (in this case, instrumental ' voice) starts alone with the tune ; next, another voice enters, repeating the tune at a different pitch, and so on. This First Main Tune really runs through most of the Overture. For instance, the beginning of it is going on even while the Second Main Tune is entering.
With this material the Overture trips along happily and straightfor w a rdly, with only one noticeable chei-k-wheii we have solemn ceremonial again recalled.
THE Opera BoaMil. the Last King of the Moors, is founded on an incident in the war of the Spaniards and the Moors, in the fifteenth century. The Ballet music taken from the work consists of three pieces, a Spanish Malagtiena (in three time, with a charactoristic rhythm beginning with whole beat, two halves, whole), a Scherzo-Valse, and a Moorish Fantasy (two time, commencing with dignified chords and going on to build up the piece over a recurring motif that stumps about in the bass).

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.
