: A MILITARY BAND CONCERT

THE WIRELESS MILITARY BAND, conducted by B. WALTON O'DONNELL
NORMAN VENNER (Baritone)
THE plot of the Opera Euryanthe was made out of a thirteenth-century tale of knightly doings, full also of ghosts, fairies and such-like legendary folk. The work did not hold the stage; its libretto was too silly, even for those days. But the Overture found and retained a place on the concert platform. In it, Weber strikes the notes of chivalry and mystery. According to his characteristic plan, it contains fragments of the Opera's leading airs.

: BAND

LISZT had a great love for the folk-music of his native Hungary. Ho expressed this affection partly in twenty Rhapsodies, some of which ho arranged for the Orchestra. In these he takes melodies played by the Hungarian gipsies, and treats them very much as the gipsies themselves do, with elaborate ornamentations and strong, vivid rhythmic effects.
The First Rhapsody begins with a dignified section (corresponding to the Lassan of the gipsies) containing two Main Tunes. The First is in a minor key, and the Second resembles tho well-known ' Rakoczy ' March (with Berlioz's treatment of which most listeners are familiar).
Next comes a lively section in the style of the gipsies' Friska dances. The music works up in speed and brilliance, the First Main Tune occurring again, and a fourth Tune appearing before the exciting finish of the work.








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.
