: A Symphony Concert

'Relayed from the Winter Gardens, Bournemouth
THE BOURNEMOUTH MUNICIPAL SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA (50 Performers)
Conducted by Sir DAN GODFREY
BOTH this and the 'Academic Festival' Overture were written about the same time, and both were first played at the concert in Breslau which followed shortly after the conferment upon the composer of the degree of D.lh. by the University of that city.
The Tragic Overture is not a prelude to any drama, nor is it based upon a story. Everyone may form his own ideas of its significance, and all will agree that it sustains a noble discourse, with a note of fine deep feeling (as in the expressive second main theme). Solo Trumpet, PHIL LEDlNGTON; Solo Flute, JEAN GENNIN; Solo Oboe, JOSEPH CRAEN; Solo Violin, BERTRAM LEWIS Soloist, NlEDZIELSKI CYRIL SCOTT conceived this work somewhat after the manner of a Bach Concerto, with a rather light accompaniment. He is said to have described it as ' impressions of Bach taken while on a supposed journey to China.' The work is in three Movements, in which the use of the Celesta, of bells and the Harp, together with the extremely piquant orchestral and pianoforte writing, give the music an air of brilliant fantasy.

: A CHORAL CONCERT

From Birmingham
Relayed from the Town Hall, Birmingham
THE BIRMINGHAM FESTIVAL CHORAL SOCIETY'S performance of the MASS IN B MINOR
(Bach)
Artists :
CAROLINE HATCHARD (Soprano) MARGARET BALFOUR (Contralto)

THE CITY OF BIRMINGHAM ORCHESTRA, conducted by ADRIAN C. BOULT
G. D. CUNNINGHAM (Organ)
THE great Mass occupied Bach during six of his maturest years—from 1733 to 1738, in which latter year he was fifty-three. It is a wonderful blend of deep thought, fine feeling, beauty of form and texture. The intensity of its artistic quality grips the mind and touches the heart.
It was written, and is always sung, to Latin words. It is not, however, a Roman Catholic Mass, or music of ritual, but a musical setting of language fundamental to all Christianity. It has five principal sections, known by the opening words of each : Kyrie, Gloria, Credo Sanctue, and Agnus Dei. Strictly speaking, there is no division into Part I and Part II, but in most performances a break is made after the Gloria, and ' Part II ' begins with the Cralo. Each of the main divisions contains several movements-Choruses, Solos, or Ducts.

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.
