: A SYMPHONY CONCERT

Relayed from the WINTER GARDENS, Bournemouth
(No. 19 of the Thirty-third Winter Series)
THE BOURNEMOUTH MUNICIPAL SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA (50 Performers)
Conducted by Sir DAN GODFREY
(First performance at these Concerts)
THIS was written for the Norwich Festival of 1893. It is in four Movements, as follows :-
FIRST MOVEMENT. A slow, dignified prelude starts with a bass tune, which is used later in the work. A hint of the chief tune of the quick Movement proper is given in the bass before we dash into this (Quick. bold, and spirited). The second of the two chief tunes can be readily distinguished : it is in the major key, is heard on the quietly pungent Oboe, with 'Cello below it, and is supported by a three-to-a-beat figure of accompaniment.
SECOND MOVEMENT. A slow Movement, lyrically suave, characteristic of British sentiment and of the composer.
THIRD MOVEMENT. Scherzo, which here may well be interpreted as ' skipping.' German has probably given us more really piquant, deft, and engaging Scherzo Movements than any other composer we have, and this has all the ingenuous gaiety of his most likeable examples.
LAST MOVEMENT. A short, slow Introduction leads in a hymn-tune-like theme. Then the very quick Movement begins, its opening tune deriving from the hymn-like melody. Delicately the upper Woodwind bring in the Second Main Tune, with its neat syncopations.

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.
