: An Orchestral Programme

(From Birmingham)
THE BIRMINGHAM STUDIO ORCHESTRA
Conducted by JOSEPH LEWIS

: W. A. CLARKE (Bassoon)

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.

(Contralto) and Orchestra
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.

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.
