: An Orchestral Programme'

(From Birmingham)
The BIRMINGHAMSTUDIO ORCHESTRA
Conducted by FRANKCANTELL CHERUBINIborn in Florence in 1760, lived to tho great age of eighty-two. In the important development which music underwent in those long years, he had himself a large share ; the church and theatre music of France in particular, to which he devoted most of his mature work, owe him more than it would be easy to compute. For
, the most part grave and serious, his music dis
plays a breadth and vigour not unlike the great Beethoven's ; it is all sincere and dignified, even in its more lighthearted moods. In its French form this opera is known as J.es Deux Journées (The Two Days) and the story tells how the Water Carrier, who is the hero, within two days extracts his patron from the wrath of the powerful Cardinal Mazarin. In accordance with the tradition of the ago, the Overture begins with a slow and rather pompous introduction and then there is a lively section with two main tunes. Both can be easily recognized as they appear.

: KATHLEEN MOORHOUSE (Violoncello) and Orchestra

THIS violoncello Concerto, composed in 1876, is in the usual throe movements. The first has a slow Introduction before the main quick part appears, opening with a bold, majestic tune played by the soloist. It is the soloist also who has the gentler and more plaintive second tune. In the working out section the theme of the Introduction is used as well as these two, and after the customary recapitulation, there is a little coda.
; The second movement has two contrasted moods. First, after a little Introduction, a bright song-like tune for the solo violoncello, and the othermore vivacious and sprightly. Both ofthese are repeated.
Thelast movement has again a short Introduction, with something Spanish in its tune.
Listeners will remember that Lalo more than once turned to Spain for inspiration. The movement itself is a Rondo, in lively measure, the principal tune appearing first on the solo instrument in a merry triplet measure.

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.
