Suite No. 2, in B Minor, for Flute and Strings 'Bach
1. OVERTURE. A slow Introduction ushers in a fugal Movement.
II. RONDEAU. (Quick.) One tune recurs several times, alternating with contrasting passages.
III. SARABANDE. A stately dance, in two halves, each repeated.
IV. BOURRÉES I and II. Each Bourree is a lively dance, also in two repeated halves. In the Second Bourree the Flute comes quietly to the front. The First Bourree is repeated after the Second.
V. POLONAISE. A graceful dance at a moderate pace (not the type of Polonaise that Chopin wrote). A ' 'Double' or Variation follows, in which the Flute becomes very agile. This Tune is now in the Bass.
VI. MINUET. This is the earlier form of Minuet-in two repeated halves, like the other dance-pieces in this Suite.
VII. BADINERIE (i.e. Pleasantry '). A bit of high-spirited skipping music, of Bach's jolliest brand.
THIS is a collection of six Bach pieces, nearly all taken from his music for keyboard instruments. Sir Henry Wood has scored these pieces for modem orchestra, but in doing so, he has tried to adhere faithfully throughout to the spirit of the original.
The First Piece is the Third Prelude from the '48.' The Second is a Lament from the Caprice on the Departure of a Beloved Brother. The Third is from a Partita. The Fourth is from the Sixth English Suite. The Fifth is another Prelude from the ' 48.' The Sixth is the Prelude from the Third Partita for Solo Violin, of which Sir Henry Wood has provided a brilliant modern orchestral version.

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.

Welcome to BBC Genome

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.
