: A Symphony Concert

Relayed from the Winter Gardens, Bournemouth
THE BOURNEMOUTH MUNICIPAL SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA (50 Performers)
Conducted by Dame ETHEL SMYTH and Sir DAN GODFREY
No. 31 of the Thirty-Third Winter Series
Specially arranged for the British Music Society Congress
(First Performance at these Concerts)
THE Suite was originally composed for Anthony Bernard's Chamber Orchestra and is dedicated to him. It has some of the Oriental characteristics found in much of bcotts music. The form is simple, the music being based on recurring themes which will be apparent without any analysis. The three titles - Fata Morgana, Dance of Spectres, and Elves and Goblins - indicate the descriptive nature of the music.
This work is written in free 'sonata' form, in which we are introduced to two main themes of different character, divided by a subsidiary theme which appears in the form of a dialogue between Oboe and Bassoon. Notice the little figure which opens the work and is played very softly by the First and Second Violins. This figure is almost always present.
The middle section introduces a new theme, which is announced by solo Oboe and then taken up by all the Violins.
The Rhapsody ends very quietly, the Bassoons softly playing the opening figure, thus preparing the way for the last word by the Flutes, which recalls the theme of the middle section.

Fifth Symphonic Poem, Wallace
FOR the six hundredth anniversary celebration in 1905 of the death of Scotland's great patriot, William Wallace , his namesake composed an orchestral work which, while it does not build upon actual Scots tunes, has much of their lilt and life in it. In particular, the rhythm of Scots wha hae wi' Wallace bled and The Land o' the Leal will be heard pulsing through the music.
It is in four linked sections. In the first the mood is reflective. A new and powerful march-like theme begins the second section. After this has been built up to a climax, the slow, sweet third section is ushered in by Harps, the muted Strings playing a lyrical melody.
The last section is brilliant and gay. The chief themes (one in the lower instruments and one in the upper Strings) are hinted at before they are heard in full power, near the close. The lilt of Scots wha hae comes in again, and the music makes a joyous end.

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.
