: LIGHT MUSIC

From Birmingham
The BIRMINGHAM STUDIO ORCHESTRA, conducted by JOSEPH LEWIS
PETER SCHMOLL andhisNeighbours was one of the works written in intervals between the restlesswanderings of the Webers, father and son, during the latter's early 'teens. Weber was only fifteen (1801) when ho wrote the Opera, in Salzburg, one of their places of call. It was produced a year or two later, but without success.
The Overture, after a manner common in tlioso days, opens with a slow, dignified Introduction, after which, prances in tho dapper First Main Tune. that alternates for a little with a martial. sounding passage of chords. The Second Main Tune's coming is very clearly announced (also after the fashion of the time) by a flourish, and. after a pause it enters-a smooth melody with a Weberian ' turn ' on its first note (an ornament of four notes-a sort of graceful curl around the principal note).
After thoso ideas have been discussed for a little. we have suddenly some bars of slow music, which, however, only interrupt the gaiety for a few moments. The original speed is resumed and the. Overture worked up to an exciting conclusion.

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.
