W. Y. HURLESTONE , who died in 1906, at the ago of thirty, left some fragrant chamber music. Three pieces contain work for the Bassoon, and one of these, the Sonata in F, we are to hear. Its four Movements, which contain some most graceful music, well devised to give the Bassoonist opportunities for showing his own and his instrument's artistic capacity, are: (1) Lively ; (2) Ballad; (3) Fairly quick; 4) At a moderate pace.

Recit. and Air, ' Che faro senza Euridice Y ' ('What shall I do without Eurydice? ') from ' Orpheus ' Gluck
THE background of Gluck's air is this :-
Eurvdice, the wife of Orpheus, is dead The sorrowing husband is allowed to descend into
Hades and bring her back, but he must not, in doing so, look on her face. He finds her, and bids her follow him. She, not understanding his averted look, thinks that ho no longer loves her, and weeps so that he forgets his vow, and shows his love in one glance. She falls lifeless. Che faro ? expresses the husband's sore grief. In the end, the god of Love, touched by his distress, again restores Eurydice to him.

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

This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers,
images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio
