: A MILITARY BAND CONCERT

DOROTHY MORRIS (Soprano); ALICE VAUGHAN (Contralto); HENRY WENDON (Tenor);
HARRY BRINDLE (Bass)
THE WIRELESS MILITARY BAND, conducted by B. WALTON O'DONNELL
Overture to ' Alfonso and Estrella '
Schubert
THE OpemAlfonso and Estrella was never played during its composer's lifetime, but he did hear the Overture to it, for, when he was asked to write the music for the play Rosamunde, and was pressed for time, he utilised the Alfonso Overture , instead of writing a new one.
The music pleased very much, though the play was a total failure. In spite of the Overture's success, it was not printed until nearly forty years after his death.
It has first a slowish Introduction, that opens with a motif we hear a good deal later—the challenging loud chord, followed by another an octave lower. This is notable in the First Main Tune ; and the bit of melody which immediately follows these chords is developed into the Second Main Tune. On these ideas the Overture is briskly built up.

: A LIGHT ORCHESTRAL PROGRAMME

From Birmingham
THE BIRMINGHAM STUDIO ORCHESTRA
Conducted by JOSEPH LEWIS
AMONG the almost innumerable smaller works of Mozart there are many ' gems of musical literature ' (as Tchaikovsky called them) which have never become well known. It was in order to bring some of this unknown Mozart before the public that Tchaikovsky wrote his Suite, Mozartiana. It consists of orchestral arrangements of three Piano Pieces and of the little Choral work Ave Verum Corpus (which, perhaps, was loss known in the Russia of 1887 than it is in the musical countries of today). It is this Prayer that wo are to hear.
THE action of Rimsky-Korsakov's Opera, The Snow Maiden, takes place in a mythical kingdom. There, on the first day of Spring, all young people who wish to wed come to receive the Tsar's blessing at a gathering held in the woodland. The clowns' dance rounds off the day's festivities.

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.
