: A SYMPHONY CONCERT

Relayed from THE WINTER
GARDENS, BOURNEMOUTH
No. 30 of the Thirty-third
Winter Series
CLIFFORD CURZON
(Pianoforte)
THE BOURNEMOUTH MUNICIPAL SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA
(50 Performars)
Conducted by SIR DAN GODFREY
THIS colossal work was
Schubert's last Symphony. It was quite beyond the powers of the Viennese orchestra of his day, and never, in fact, got beyond rehearsal in his lifetime.
It has four Movements : (1) Slow, leading to
Fairly quick; (2) Rather slow, song-like; (3) Scherzo; (4) Quick and lively.
IN 1820, when Schubert was about twenty-three, he wrote a Fantasia for Pianoforte on his song The Wanderer, using little of the actual song melody (and that chiefly in the slow movement), but treating, in a work after the sonata style, the general idea of the Wanderer poem-that of the traveller who ever seeks a home, and finds none.
Liszt, many years later, took up Schubert's work and made it into a piece for Pianoforte and Orchestra, freely elaborating the Pianoforte part, but not glorifying the instrument into the position of a mere showy soloist, supported by its faithful, retiring servitors in the orchestra.
The music falls into four linked sections, played without break : the first quick and fiery, the second slow (this begins with an extract from the Wanderer song), the third practically a Scherzo, and the fourth a strongly-pulsing section largely in fugal style.
ERIC FOGG was born on February 21, 1903, in Manchester. At the ago of nine ho entered Manchester Cathedral, where ho remained for five years as a choristor. The following two years he spent as organist at St. John's Church, Doansgate, Manchester, after which, he took lessons in orchestration and composition from, Granville Bantock in Birmingham. For the last four years he has hold the po?t of accompanist at the Manchester Station of the B.B.C. He has written two Ballets, many orchestral and chamber works, a Choral Ballad, ' The Hillside,' and many songs, part-songs, and other pieces.
The present work was sketched during the summer of 1926 and completed the following spring. The music opens softly with the Strings giving out the first main tune. and continues thus for a short time until a rhythmic utterance from the trumpet gives way to a turbulent passage for full orchestra. Gradually the music becomes tranquil again and we hear a recurrence of the main theme, which is developed a little in connection with the trumpet call. Once again all is cairn. and we are prepared for tho second main tune a langaorous melody given out by the Violoncellos, which is eventually worked up to a passionate climax by the full orchestra. The time changes, and the music strongly surges on until the climax of tho work is reached.

: The Tremendous Adventure of Major Brown

from ' The Club of Queer Trades,' by G. K. Chesterton
Read by Michael Sadleir
The Club of Queer Trades' is one of the most Chestertonian of all Mr. Chesterton's books; full of fantastic adventures and situations, charged with incredible romance, yet all the time maintaining a sort of method in its madness. This evening Mr. Michael Sadleir, the novelist and literary critic, will read one of the best of the tales.

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.
