PHILIP BROWN 'S
In Memory of Debussy
S. KNEALE KELLEY
Conducted by ERNEST
THERE is unusual interest in this programme in memory of Debussy, who died just ten years ago, for not only are several of his works included, besides a piece by Stravinsky intended as a tribute to him, but two older works are added of which
Debussy was very fond, and which had some influence upon his mind.
The conductor, M. Ansermct , whom we know very well, was a personal friend of Debussy, and brings to the interpretation of his music keen sympathy and intimate understanding.
THE title of this work, first heard here in 1921, does not signify a Symphony in the usual meaning of the term, but a sounding together of wind instruments (twelve Woodwind and eleven Brass). The composer has said that ' the tonal masses are to be regarded objectively by the ear,' and he desires that the instruments shall be played without emotional inflexions.
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.

Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and

This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers,
images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio
Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available
externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
