: An Orchestral Programme

(From Birmingham)
THE BIRMINGHAM STUDIO ORCHESTRA
Conducted by FRAKK CANTELL
PROFESSOR GRANVILLE BANTOCK 'S career has taken him all over the world, and many different lands have given him inspiration for his music. This Suite is a set of five light-hearted tunes in the Russian manner, most of them dances.
The first, ' At the Fair' (Nijni Novgorod) begins with a rhythmic figure out of which the principal tune is soon evolved, a merry tune in which the same rhythm is repeated bar by bar.
The second is a Mazurka, and here again the rhythm of the opening is heard almost all the way through. The principal tune appears after four bars, on the first violins. There is another merry running figure combined with the rhythm of the opening, of which a middle section is made.
The third movement is a Polka, with a sturdy tune played first by clarinets, bassoons, horns, and cornets.
A Waltz comes next, and here again the introduction foreshadows the chief tune. Violoncellos and bassoons play it first. There is a middle section in more vigorous time.
The last movement is a very live Cossack
Dance. In a quick three in the bar, it is interrupted ever and anon by a bar of two beats, as though the players stamped their feet firmly on the ground. Here again there is a middle section with a more gracious melody.

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.
