: Light Music

(From Birmingham)
Conducted by JOSEPH LEWIS
MASSENET, two of whose operas are being included in this year's broadcasts - Our Lady's Juggler (Le Jongleur de Notre Dame) in May and Werther in July-was particularly successful in catching and embodying in his music something of the character of tho scenes which inspired it. He was one of the illustrious French musicians who won the Prix de Rome, the highest award which the Paris Conservatoire gives its students, and one which entails a period of study in Italy. It was no doubt some recollection of his stay there which gave him the idea for this bright and sparkling Suite. The names of its four movements can very well speak for themselves, but, as listeners can hear, the music does indeed bring with it something of the gay and sunny South.
DELIBES, who had enjoyed many years of almost unchallenged eminence as composer of Ballets and similar light music for the stage, cherished the ambition to produce serious operatic music. Listeners recently had a chance of deciding for themselves how far he succeeded in that, when his opera Lakmé was broadcast. It was one of several works composed for the more important Paris stage, and the last of them was an Opera in five Acts called Kassya. Delibes was at work on it when he died, and the Opera was finished by Massenet. It was produced in 1801. In the Ballet music, Delibes was, of course, on ground which he knew wall and intimately, and there is nothing astonishing in the fact that it has escaped the comparative neglect into which the Opera has fallen.

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.
