: A Summer Symphony Concert

Relayed from the Winter Gardens, Bournemouth THE BOURNEMOUTH MUNICIPAL AUGMENTED
Conducted by Sir DAN GODFREY FRANK PHILLIPS (Bass-Baritone)
GLAZOUNOV was born in Petrograd (where he still lives) in 1865. He is not an out-and-out member of the Russian ' national' school of composers, having a tendency to revert to the classical and the cosmopolitan. This Symphony, in E flat, is the fourth of eight that he has composed, and his forty-eighth work (of about eighty altogether). It is in three movements.
FIRST Movement. A rather slow, plaintive Introduction, leading into a quick Movement, in which the tune heard at the opening of the Introduction is made use of. SECOND Movement. A Scherzo, a rapid lively Movement.
THIRD Movement. Another rather slow
Introduction, leading into a quick Movement. Here again, the First Main Tune of the slow portion (it comes on the Clarinet) is employed in the quick Movoment proper. In the course of his development of the many ideas he uses, tho Composer introduces a reminiscence of the Symphony's opening melody.

Relayed from the Arts Theatre Club
Conducted by EDWARD CLARK
HANDEL'S Great Concertos ('
Concerti Grossi ') ') are not Concertos in the modern meaning of works for (usually) one Soloist and an Orchestra.
Handel generally used an Orchestra of Stringed instruments and one or two Harpsichords, and divided it into groups of players. One group consisted of two Violins and a Violoncello, and the other comprised the remainder of the Orchestra. One Harpsichord supported each group.
These groups are played off one against another, all through the work, having alternate cuts at the music, so to speak, and sometimes they are combined.
This Concerto is in three Movements: (1)
Moderately quick ; (2) Slow ; (3) Quick.
LOVE, THE MAGICIAN, is a one-act Ballet concerned with Andalusian gipsy life. Candelas, a young, beautiful, and passionate gipsy woman, has loved a handsome man of her own race. After his death, she falls in love with Carmelo, another young gipsy, but is haunted by the jealous spectre of her former lover, of which she cannot free herself. Eventually, the ghost is laid, and Candelas and Carmelo are
. united.

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.
