: A MILITARY BAND PROGRAMME

From Birmingham
THE BIRMINGHAM MILITARY BAND, conducted by W. A. CLARKE
THE plot of the Opera Euryanthe was made out of a thirteenth-century tale of knightly doings, full also of ghosts, fairies and such-like legendary folk. The work did not hold the stage; its libretto was too silly, even for those days. But the Overture found and retained a place on the concert platform. In it, Weber strikes the notes of chivalry and mystery. According to his characteristic plan, it contains fragments of leading airs from the Opera.
THE Finale actually grows, in the most exciting
, way, out of a mysterious whispered passage at the end of the Third Movement, the Scherzo. This passage gradually leads'into the blaze of the triumphal Finale, a psean that sustains the note of exultation from beginning to end, except for a moment when Beethoven brings in a few bars-a ghost, as it were-of the Scherzo.

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.
