: A LIGHT ORCHESTRAL CONCERT

From Birmingham
RUSSLAN AND LUDMILLA is a fairy-tale
Opera about a Princess who was wooed by three lovers, and carried off by a magician. The plot follows the adventures of the three rival suitors in search of her.
The Overture, a stirring piece of quick music, is built on themes from the Opera. One of them, that represents the wicked magician, is a descending whole-tone scale. This is one of the first instances of the use of this peculiar scale.
The First Main Tune is given out, after a few bars of Introduction, by the Full Orchestra, with great energy. This is worked up a little, one part ' imitating ' another, and then the broad, swinging Second Main Tune (based on one of Russian's songs) comes en the Bassoons and Lower Strings.
It is just before the Coda, or winding-up section, that we hear the ' whole-tone scale,' blared out by the heaviest bass instruments. , After it, the Overture quickly rattles on to a rollicking conclusion.

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.

Welcome to BBC Genome
