THE BIRMINGHAM STUDIO AUGMENTED ORCHESTRA
Leader, FRANK CANTELL
Conducted by JOSEPH LEWIS
Several diverse influences went to the making of Balfour Gardiner's musicianship:
Charterhouse, New College Oxford, Frankfurt, and Sonderhausen, all contributed a share, and for a time he was Music Master at Winchester. His music is all fresh and melodious, and in dealing with the orchestra he is thoroughly at home. This Overture is not inspired by any actual comedy, nor has it any fixed programme; its name is the best possible clue to its intention.
There is a short introduction with hints of the first principal tune; it appears at once on the first violins when we reach the main part of the piece - a very merry, bustling tune. The second main tune is more suave and flowing, but not less happy, and on these, along with little reminders of the introduction, the Overture is built up on orthodox lines. There is a short coda in the same bright spirits as the rest of the piece.
According to an old legend the spirits of all the men of the Irish Brigade who were killed on the field of Fontenoy, took the form of wild geese, when darkness fell, and flew home to Ireland. That is the theme which Sir Hamilton Harty has set forth in this picturesque orchestral piece, making use of Irish idioms, if not actual Irish tunes.
There is a slow and rather plaintive introduction, and then two brisk Irish tunes played by flutes. A quiet tune on the oboe comes next, with a hint of martial music in the accompaniment, and the music sinks to the stillness of night, although the mutters of coming battle can still be heard.
A call on trumpets brings in the Irish tunes once more, now in a more stirring vein, and the tone poem comes to an end with a theme which depicts the flight of the wild geese after the battle.

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.
