PURCELL was an inventive genius, whose inquiring mind revelled in thinking out new ideas and making experiments in music.
At a time when music for a few strings only was little pursued, he was trying what could be done with from three to eight string parts-writing Fantasias, as lie called them.
In this Fantasia in five String parts we shall hear how ingeniously he dealt with the pretty little problem of the Note that Wouldn't be Silent.
TCHAIKOVSKY said of this Symphony: I love it as I have never loved one of my musical offspring before.' He did not live to witness its abounding success : a fortnight after its first performance he was dead. The separate Movements of the Symphony are as follows :—
First Movement. (Slow Introduction. Then
Fairly quick—Rather slow-Quick and lively —Rather slow.) That is to say, this is a Movement with many changes of speed. With the Fairly Quick' section the Movement proper opens. It is made out of two chief tunes-one agitated and broken in character, and the other gracious and flowing.
Second Movement. (Quickly, but gracefully.)
This is the favourite Movement, with five beats to a bar, instead of the two, three, four, or six usual at the time this work was written. (Considered in another way, it consists of alternate bars of two and three beats.)
The Third Movement is a Scherzo. Throughout inost of this Movement Strings and Wood-wind maintain a delicate swift flight of notes. But there is an unmistakably military, even heroic, feeling in the March-tune, which very soon appears and sweUs over the whole Orchestra.
In the Fourth Movement (Slow and lamenting, then somewhat quicker), the moods pass through pathos and pity to final despair-a sadly appropriate ending to the composer's last Symphony.' Death overtook him within three months of the completion of the work.

GRANADOS wrote four volumes of Spanish
Dances, showing in places something of the same spirit of abandon as Brahms in his Hungarian Dances. Their remarkable rhythmic power is especially noticeable.
Enrique Granados was, like Albeniz (another leader among modern Spanish composers) a Catalonian, but was six years younger than he. In the second year of the war Granados lost his life through the sinking of the Sussex. in which he was returning from the New York performance of his Opera Goyescas.

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.
