: LIGHT MUSIC

From Birmingham
THE BIRMINGHAM STUDIO ORCHESTRA, con. ducted by JOSEPH LEWIS
THE plot of this Comic Opera (which has recently been revived on the London stage) is very unreal, but very amusing, and the music is particularly sparkling.
The title refers to womenkind and their alleged fickleness. The Overture is a lengthy piece of vivacious, care-free music, exactly the right thing to ring up the curtain on so gay o ploi.
THE Suite (the Composer's Op. 6S) was published in 1909, when Coleridge- Taylor was thirty-four. It was originally intended as a work for Children, and is dedicated to ' Little Sunshine,' his name for a child who made a friend of him whilst ho was at work on it...
It consists of settings of six of Thomas Moore 's lyrics: (1) The Magic Mirror; (2) The Fairy Boat; (3) To Rosa; (4) Love and Hymen; (5) The Watchman ; (6) Say, what shall we dance ?

: CHAMBER MUSIC

From Birmingham
THE PHILHARMONIC STRING QUARTET : PAUL
BEARD (Violin), HAROLD MILLS (2nd Violin). FRANK VENTON (Viola), HERBERT STEPHEN
(Violoncello)
THIS, one of Schubert's loveliest works, ia in four Movements.
The First Movement, energetic, somewhat long and fully developed, is made out of two Main Tunes, the First in the minor key and the second a quietly happy major tune, given out by First and Second Violins, the Viola and Cello rocking gently beneath.
The Second (Slow) Movement is a set of Variations on a tune from one of his early songs-the dialogue between Death and the Maiden. In this song a maiden bids Death pass her by, and leave her to enjoy her youth. But Death in tho tones which we hear at the beginning of this Movement, bids her not to fear, but to rest, free from care, in his arms.
The five Variations in the melody cover a wide range of emotion.
The Third Movement is a playful Scherzo, with a lyrical middle section.
Finally, wo have a rollicking, quick Movement built, like the First, on two Main Tunes, one dance-like and the other in martial style.

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.
