: A Symphony Concert

No 6 of the 34 Winter Series
Relayed from the Winter Gardens, Bournemouth
THE BOURNEMOUTH MUNICIPAL AUGMENTED
ORCHESTRA
Conducted by Sir DAN GODFREY
ADILA FACHIRI (Violin)
JEAN GENNIN (Flute) mHIS is the second Overture of the great
1 Cherubini which is being played for 5GB listeners this week, the other having been included in the Sunday afternoon programme.
This is in a rather slighter mould, and more lighthearted in character, as is the story of the opera which follows it.
T ISTENERS who heard the second of the L BB C's Symphony Concerts this season will be interested in comparing this Concerto with another which was equally unknown until this winter, by a fellow-countryman and contemporary of Respighi's. Like Casella, the composer of the other Concerto, Respighi is the son of a musician. At a very early age he distinguished himself as a violinst and composer, and for a time studied with Rimsky-Korsakov in St. Petersburg (as it was then), and afterwards in Berlin with Max Bruch. His music is thus less markedly Italian ,in character than we might have looked for from one whose interests are very largely centred in his native country.
His best-known orchestral pieces deal mainly with one aspect or another of Rome-its Fountains, its Pines, its Church Windows, suites on all these three subjects having been played within the past two years to B.B.C. listeners. Since
1913 he has been Professor of Composition in the great school of music at Rome ; four years ago he was unanimously appointed its Principal.

(From Birmingham)
A Comedy of the Coalfields by EDWIN LEWIS
The Browns' Kitchen on a Saturday evening.
On the wall is a bright motto inscribed : ' What is Home without a Mother?' Bill Brown is sitting in a solitary state gazing at this work of art, with obvious indignation for the sneer it casts on the Brown household.

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.
