: An Orchestral Programme

(From, Birmingham)
THE BIRMINGHAM
STUDIO ORCHESTRA
Conducted by FRANK CANTELL
IN these days when youth is at the helm in music as in so many other directions, Sinigaglia is no doubt well content to count himself as among the older Italian composers, although he is still active. He has long been enthusiastic in the collection and propagation of the folk music of his native Piedmont; it may well have been Dvorak, whose pupil he was, who infected him with an enthusiasm like his own. There is a brightness and energy about these folk tunes, embodied as they are in Sinigaglia's orchestral arrangements, which makes them as inevitably popular as all national songs and dances arc when fittingly presented.
THESE variations, among Schumann's early pianoforte works, are dedicated to Pauline, Countess d'Abegg. There was no such countess, but it is supposed that Schumann had in mind one Fraulein Abegg , whom ho had met at a ball, and to whom he thus wished to pay whimsical homage. The letters of the name are used to form a theme ; in German they are all names of notes, as in English, with this difference, that in German B means B Flat. Our B is in German H. The theme is easily followed, and the set of variations which Schumann made on it is simple and straightforward.

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.
