: A MILITARY BAND CONCERT

'(From Birmingham)
Relayed from the BANDSTAND, CANNON HILL PARK
THE CITY OF BIRMINGHAM POLICE BAND
Conducted by Richard WASSELL
NONE of the popular excerpts from Wagner's
Operas is better suited to the Military
Band than the Overture to The Mastersinger8. A large part of it is the music of trumpets and trombones, with the rest of the orchestral instruments assisting. This part will be easily recognized. It occupies several pages at the beginning and several more at the end, and it is connected in the Opera with the pomps and festivities of the Mastersingers' Guild in sixteenth-century Nuremberg. When suave and quiet melodies intervene, one has to think of velvety Violins, and a little 'scene between lovers. Then comes some chattering, light-hearted music ; this shows the apprentices at their games. Lastly, the Mastersinger music returns and makes a gorgeous ceremony for the ending. (Soloist, P. C. COOK )
THIS last, in Daudcfs play, is a chorus sung in praise of St. Eloi. First there is a march-like
Introduction (also used in the first Suite), and then a very lively main section comes in. Its melody is an old Provencal song-and-dance tune. This is given out softly, the Side Drum keeping up a rhythmic tap. Other instruments join in and the march theme is heard, combined with the Farandole. The excitement is worked up to a tremendous pitch and the piece ends with crashing chords.

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.
