An Eastern Comedy in One Act, by GEORGE CALDERON
On a hilltop outside an Arabian city there sits at the entrance to his hut one Hafiz, smoking a hookah. In peaceful contemplation he regards the white roof-tops which lie shimmering below. Life in > the East is never hurried, and towards the close of one's days it becomes even more tranquil and philosophical. A Figure leaning on a staff, and carrying a bunch of roses, approaches. It is friend Hariri.

IF we do not often hear the larger works of Moszkowski (1854-1925). he is a familiar friend to very many who have played his pianoforte duets, From Foreign Parts, or, of recent years, heard his light orchestral music broadcast. He composed also in the larger forms-a a Symphony, Joan of Arc, Concertos for Pianoforte and Violin, a Ballet, and the Opera, Boabdil, The Last King of the Moors. This is founded on an incident in the war of the Spaniards and the Moors in. the fifteenth century. The Ballet Music taken from the work consists of three pieces, the first of which we are to hear. It is a Spanish Malaguena (in three time, with a characteristic rhythm beginning with whole beat, two halves, whole.)
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.
Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and
is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to
obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in
programmes, online etc.
This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers,
images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio
Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available
externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
