ELGAR'S Op. 27 is a Suite for Choir and Orchestra, called ' From the . Bavarian Highlands,' an echo of the composer's travels in that kindly part of the world. Three numbers of the Suite are for orchestra alone, and these are often played separately. The first is a light-hearted dance, in which the tune enters boldly at the third bar. Once or twice its course is interrupted by a still more animated movement, and there is a more suave melody sometimes heard alono and sometimes along with the merry tune of the opening.
The second dance, called ' In Hammersbach,' opens with three introductory bars, and then the first violins play the leading tune. Here, too, there is another, more smoothly- flowing, melody heard along with the first, and a quieter section in the middle of the pieco. HELENA MILLAIS
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.
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.
