: Symphony Concert

No. XVI OF THE THlRTY.FOURTH WINTER SERIES
Relayed from The Winter Gardens, Bournemouth THE BOURNEMOUTH Municipal AUGMENTED
ORCHESTRA
Conducted by Sir DAN GODFREY and HERBERT BEDFORD
ARNOLD TROWELL (Violoncello)
THE music of Herbert
Bedford may be said to be distinguished especially by its delicacy of feeling and refinement of workmanship. both of which qualities will be discerned in the two works to be played today.
Concerning the first of these, the Symphonic Interlude, Over the Hills and Far Away, the composer has stated that while the work has no explicit programme, it may be taken as a tone picture composed under the chivalric influence of Spenser's ' Faerie Queene ,' a fact which gives the clue to its character.
In respect of the second of Mr. Bedford's works being played this afternoon, Hamadryad, likewise described as a Symphonic Interlude, the following lines prefixed to the MS. score give an indication as to its general character :-
In the heart of the dense forest that through the past few centuries has entirely overrun the Valley of the Seven Hunters, there lies concealed an enchanted pool that was formerly known as The Dryad's Mirror.' ...
Its banks, rising sheer from the water's edge, are shrouded in a mist of wild hyacinth : but within Its depths, clear though they be as summer night, there is nothing to be seen, saving the reflection of the giant oaks crowding about it and of the slender tendrils of convolvulus that reach down from the overhanging boughs, fantastically twining and re-entwining like the arms of imprisoned dryads.
This piece may indeed well be called a dream-picture, for all that is painted here is overhung with a gossamer veil of mystery, through which its very sadness has a shimmering pictorial quality that in some way suggests a Barbizon picture.

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.

Welcome to BBC Genome

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 obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in programmes, online etc.

This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers, images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
