: A RECITAL

By SYLVIA YORK BOWEZ (Soprano) and YORK BOWEN (Pianoforte)
YORK BOWEN (born in London in 1884) is widely known as Pianist, Composer and Teacher. He is a Professor of the Pianoforte in the institution at which he received his training -the Royal Academy of Music. He has composed much music in many forms-Symphonies, Concertos, Chamber Music (including a number of works for the viola, in which he has shown a special interest), and much Pianoforte Music.
Tonight we are to hear him in one of the joint recitals with his wife, which they have frequently given during the past sixteen years.

: A MILITARY BAND CONCERT

EKID CRUICKSHANK (Contralto);
GERSHOM PARKINGTON (Violoncello)
THE WIRELESS MILITARY BAND: Conducted by B. WALTON O'DONNELL
THE work is founded on old Cornish folk tunes (several of which were used, in a modified form, m the work On the Cornish Coast, which the Composer wrote for the Crystal Palace Brass Band Competition in 1924). It opens with the sea shanty Lowlands Low, which is given out by the brass and developed at some length.
The opening fragment of the tune plays an important part throughout the work, serving, in various guises, to bind the different sections together.
A second theme (Woolycombe) now becomes more prominent and is shortly followed by a quieter section in which the tune, A maiden sat weeping, played by the Oboe, takes the most important share.
The next tune to appear is that of the Helston
Furry Dance. This is introduced, apparently, by the oldest inhabitant of the place-somewhat unsteady on his feet. Others take up the Dance, and when it is in full swing, yet another tune, the Song of the Western Men, steals in, and the two themes are heard together in the Coda.

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.
