: A SYMPHONY CONCERT

Relayed from the Winter Gardens, Bournemouth
(No.4 of the 33 Winter Series)
THE BOURNEMOUTH MUNICIPAL SYMPHONY
ORCHESTRA. (50 Performers), conducted by Sir DAN GODFREY
THE Composer of this Overture spent much of his childhood at sea, and passed his youth among ships and seamen. We are told that the work 'deals with seamen rather than the sea, and is in some measure a tribute to one particular
. ship's company, of happy memory.' It ' owes something to their courage, good humour, and love of sentiment,' and at the close there is a memory of their gallant death, in the war.
The Overture treats a number of sea songs-the halliards shanty Blow the man down (on the Horns, as the second tune of the piece), the foresheet shanty Haul away, Joe (Violins in octaves, soon after this), a traditional sea song, The Maid of Amsterdam (Oboe and other Wood-wind, very softly),. then Admiral Benbow (four Horns), and the well-known-Shenandoah ('Cellos). After the development of these ideas, the music takes on a note of foreboding and theli rises to a ' menace. The last mood is that of a requiem, and the work ends with a last hint of Shenandoah.
THE French Composer, Lalo, wrote this piece for the famous Spanish Violinist. Sarasate, whom some listeners will recollect hearing, for he used to be a great favourite here twenty years. ago.
The Spanish Symphony (which is really a Suite of pieces, not a Symphony in the usual meaning of the term) is Spanish music through n French-man's eyes-gay, debonair, polished and piquant.
There are in the complete work five separate
Movements, well contrasted in spirit and style, of which we are to hear four—an opening quiet Movement, a Scherzo, a Slow Movement and a Rondo.

The Scene, is a gipsy encampment in a wood-
Two half-bell ten's of canvas are in the shelter of the trees. In the rear, before the tents, a red fire burns, over which, on a tripod, is suspended a pot, and on a log near the fire sits middle-aged woman of the true gipsy type. The night is warm and breathless, and presently, after staring into the fire, she draws a gleaming knife.

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.
