: An Orchestral Concert

(From Birmingham)
THE BIRMINGHAM STUDIO ORCHESTRA
Conducted by FRANK CANTELL
L'ABEILLE is the best known piece by one
Franz Schubert. He was so modestly anxious that there should be no con. fusion between his work and that of his illustrious namesake that he allowed his name to appear on programmes as Francois Schu bert, much to the indignation of an anonymous listener who wrote to protest against this ' Frenchifying ' of the great Schubert's German ' Franz.'
This Schubert was a distinguished violinist who served for fifty years in the Royal Orchestra at Dresden, retiring, after some years as leader, on the fiftieth anniversary of the date of his joining. His wife and daughter were both opera singers and both made successful appearances in London on the stage and on the platform of the old ' Monday Pops.'

(From Birmingham)
The BIRMINGHAM STUDIO AUGMENTED
ORCHESTRA
(Leader, FRANK CANTELL)
Conducted by JOSEPH LEWIS
Overture, ' Much Ado About Nothing ' Coronation March and Hymn Symphonic Poem, ' Hamlet Solemn March
March Rhapsody on Original Themes
A S everybody knows, Sir Edward German first
A made his mark by incidental music wiitten for the theatre, particularly for Shakespeare plays. The Overture, Much Ado About Nothing, along with many other attractive numbers, was composed for a production of the play, in 1898, by the late Sir George Alexander at the St. James' Theatre.
HAMLET made its first appearance at the Birmingham Festival of 1897. The composer tells us that he has endeavoured to depict the character of Hamlet as stern and relentless yet, in his moods, alternately hesitating and impetuous. The influence of this character may be said to dominate the entire work.
Hamlet's love for Ophelia is overpowered by his doubts, his distrust of the Queen, and his determination to avenge the murder of his father ; his fury reaches its height as he stabs the King.
The poison which Hamlet has received from the weapon of Laertes now begins to take effect, and hence to the end the music is descriptive of the ebbing away of his life.

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.
