WITH the same order of enthusiasm with which
Brahms and Dvorak collected and gave to the concprt world the Hungarian and Slavonic Dances which are now so universally popular, Granados edited four volumes of national Spanish dances, arranging them in the first instance for pianoforte. Their strongly marked Spanish character is most clearly evident in their vigorous rhythm ; that, indeed, seems to matter almost more than the tunes.
Listeners will remember that Granado?, like his older compatriot Albeniz, was a native of Catalonia, a part of Spain where national sentiment is a very sturdy growth.

: WINIFRED BROWNE

THE fact that Thomas' opera' Hamlet' includes a ballet is of itself sufficient evidence that Shakespeare is treated with rather scant dignity in the libretto. But at the time when it was composed, an Opera without a Ballet would have had no chance of success on the Paris stage, and this was for many years one of the most popular works in the repertory there. It contains much of Thomas' finest and most tuneful music, and though it is now seldom played in its complete stage form, parts of it are often heard. It was first produced in Paris in 186,8, and London heard it a year later, in Italian, at Covent Garden. It has one feature which was unusual in its own day ; Hamlet, the hero, is a Baritone instead of a Tenor, as tradition was wont to demand.

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
