: A Coleridge-Taylor Concert

MARIE WILSON (Violin)
The WIRELESS MILITARY BAND
Conducted by B. WALTON O'DONNELL
COLERIDGE. TAYLOR, early showed his genius as a player of the violin. In duo time he was enrolled as a student at the Royal College of Music, and whilst there he produced the first part of his now famous Hiawatha-a work which exhibited both racial and individual qualities, and attracted immediate admiration. It was in the hall of the Royal College of Music that it had its first performance. Stanford conducted, and Sullivan was present. The evening was a triumph, and heralded his brilliant career. That was in 1899, when Coleridge-Taylor was twenty-four. He died, like Purcell, at the age of thirty-seven.

Ballet Music from
' Hiawatha '
TN 1912 Coleridge-Taylor returned to Long-fellow's Hiawatha, and planned a ballet on the subject. Its music was not connected with that previously written. These new scenes were later issued as an orchestral Suite, five numbers : (1) The Wooing; (2) The Marriage Feast; (3a) Bird Scene ; (3b) Conjuror's Dance ; (4) The Departure ; (5) Reunion.

Three Dream Dances.
In 1910 Coleridge-Taylor was commissioned by Sir Herbert Tree (for some of whose productions he had already written incidental music) to compose music for Alfred Noyes' fairy play, The Forest of Wild Thyme. The play was not, after all, put on the stage by Tree, and the Composer issued some of his music under various titles - Scenes from an Imaginary Ballet and Christmas Overture, among others. These Dream Dances are another part of that incidental music.








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.
