Chamber Symphony
Sclonberg
MANY listeners have already heard some of Schonberg's earlier music, his Sextet, Resplendent Night (Verklärte Nacht) having been broadcast a few months ago.
This Chamber Symphony, his Op. 9, dates from 1906 (when he was just over thirty), and goes a little farther in modernism than does that tuneful and romantic work.
The Symphony requires fifteen solo instruments - Flute (changing at times to Piccolo), Oboe, Cor Anglais (the Alto Oboe), two Clarinets, Bass Clarinet, Bassoon, Double Bassoon, two Horns, and the five Strings. When the music is played in largo halls, the composer directs that the Strings shall be doubled.
The work is in one Movement, as are several other extended pieces of Schonberg (e.g., the Quartet in D Minor played a few weeks ago, and Resplendent Night). It is in five sections, the second and fourth of which roughly correspond to the Scherzo and Slow Movement of the older String Quartet. This is closely woven music, made out of a great many themes (a thematic analysis gives no fewer than twenty-three of these), so, obviously, one hearing will not enable anyone to follow its development at all closely. All that one can expect to get at one sitting is some sense of the music's moods, perhaps a hint or two of its logical bases, and an idea as to the composer's power of persuading us that he has his goal clearly in sight all the time—and that it is worth the journey to it.
SOME of Schulhoff's music was hsard at one of tho B.B.C.'s Chenil Chamber Concerts a year ago, on the evening devoted to Czechoslovak composers.
The two divisions of his Pianoforte Concerto (it is in ono unbroken Movement) are respectively marked Slow and Quick. ' a la Jazz.' Another work of Schulhoff is his Five Jazz Studies, ono of which bears the title, Toccata ott the shimmy, The Kitten on the Keys.'
IN tho eighteenth century the Creation was deemed fit subject for a full-dress Oratorio.
It is clearly in accord with tho spirit of these stirring times that the twentieth should celebrate the ultimate marvel in the dance.
Milhaud has shown his liking for the Ballet more than once-notably in writing The Blue Train, which Diaghilev's Russian dancers first interpreted a few seasons ago. This is the first English performance of his music for The Creation of the World.

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.
