: LOZELLS PICTURE HOUSE ORGAN

(Organ)
0. 1. By Coral Reef and Shady Palm. In the original (Orchestral) form of the music the opening Theme is given out over an insistent pizzicato (plucked) bass which plays an important part throughout the movement. This gradually works up to a climax, after which -the first theme is resumed, and a brief Coda, founded on earlier material, brings the movement to a close.
No. 2. Savaii Love Song. Over a soft, lilting accompaniment, in which, in the orchestral form of the music, the Ukulele is used (probably the first time in music of serious character), the main theme is given out. This is afterwards treated in imitative style, and ends mysteriously.
No. 3. Festal Dance. This movement is written throughout in the Dorian mode, and is founded upon one theme only. The whole finale is extremely rhythmic and barbaric in character ; a long and sustained working-up passage brings the work to an exhilarating conclusion.

A S a boy, Mozart was a wonderful pianist; as a youth, he was a capable violinist. Boy, youth and man he was, of course, a composer of boundless genius. The Concerto of which wo are to hear a portion was, with five others, written at a time, about the age of nineteen, when he was particularly interested in the Violin, which he had studied under his father, one of the greatest teachers of the day.

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.
