: New Friends in Music: John Ireland

Introduced by PERCY SCHOLES and FRANK LAFFITTE (Pianoforte)
THIS is the second event of the New Friends in Music series, the interesting experiment initiated a fortnight ago, when Mr. Scholes and Mrs. Norman O'Neill introduced Debussy to any who did not know him or only knew him imperfectly.
To-night Mr. Scholes and Mr. Laffitte introduce a British composer who is well known by name to all of us, but the worth of whose music, apart from some of his smaller compositions, is far too little recognised by the wider public. In especial is his great Pianoforte Sonata neglected, that Sonata of which Lamond wrote in such enthusiastic terms when he gave it its first public performance in 1920. The Sonata is a most difficult work to play (which may, in part, account for its neglect), but Mr. Laffitte has made a long and close study of it, and a fine performance may be expected. This is believed to be the first occasion upon which the Sonata has been broadcast.

Voila donc la terrible cite (Behold the terrible city), from ' Thais '
JULES MASSENET was one of those fortunate people who find their life-work quickly, and are able to apply their gifts to the very best advantage. His early successes at the I'aris Conservatoire were repeated as soon as ho began to write Operas.
The Operas from which extracts are now given were produced in this order:-
Herodias, a version of the story of Herod and Salome, 1881. Passing Vision is Herod's song about the maiden whose image haunts him, and for whom he would give his soul.
The Cid ( a work based on the adventures of that eleventh-century Spanish hero), 1885.
Esclarnwmde (an Opera, with gorgeous scenery, about the wonder-working daughter of the Emperor of Byzantium and her love for Count Roland de Blois), 1889.
Werther, 'founded on Goethe's The Sorrows of Werther, 1892.
Thais (whom the monk Athanael converted) 1894. In this air Athanael, in Act I, reviles Alexandria, in which city Thais is the reigning courtesan.
Finck's 'Massenet and his Operas' (Lane) may be consulted by those who wish to know more about the composer's works.

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.

Welcome to BBC Genome
