: SOME POPULAR CLASSICS

From Birmingham
THE BIRMINGHAM STUDIO AUGMENTED
ORCHESTRA
(Leader, FRANK CANTELL )
Conducted by JOSEPH LEWIS
THE first piece is not really Rosamundc's
Overture at all. but one written for a ' melodrama ' called The Magic Harp. Poor Rosamunde (n play with incidental music) died swiftly, or rather, was publicly executed, after two performances. in 1823. Only its Ballet Music was rescued—to our great pleasure.
The Overture known by its name starts with an Introduction in a bold style ; after which romes the First Main Tune. its springing Theme full of fresh-air gaiety. The Theme is a little enlarged upon, and the Second Main Theme comes as the most perfect contrast. Note the dainty echo of the last couple of bars of the Tune by various instruments.
On this material the Overture is built, with unflagging spirits. Its Coda is long, and carries us to the conclusion in a still gayer rhythm.

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.
