: A Symphony Concert

(From Birmingham)
THE BIRMINGHAM STUDIO AUGMENTED
ORCHESTRA
Leader, FRANK CANTELL
Conducted by PEDRO MORALES
ANTONIO BROSA (Violin)
DISTINGUISHED exponent though he is of the music, and especially the modern symphonic music, of his native Spain, the conductor and composer, Pedro Morales , has included in his programme today, representatives of modern England, France, and Austria, besides the first Symphony of the great Beethoven. A piece of his own for violin and orchestra is to be played, as well as one which he has orchestrated, both of them Andalusian in character.
THE one-act opera, of a humorous, almost farcical order, to which Ernst Toch's piece is the Prelude, is experimental and daring in much of its music, extreme dissonances being used at times to emphasize the absurdities of the Hans Andersen story on which it is founded.
JESUS GURIDI made his first appearance as a composer at the early age of thirteen. After that, he spent some time in study in Paris, Brussels, and Cologne, and is thus, like other Spanish composers of today, influenced by a wider than merely national outlook. Much of his music, however, is based on old Basque tunes, and he is recognized as one of the leaders of music in modern Spain. Although it has not yet been heard in this country, this symphonic work is among the best known of his pieces. The music, allusive rather than descriptive, is inspired by the following part of ' Don Quixote. ' On the lonely plains of La Mancha , a procession of monks- comes from a distance. Don Quixote and Sancho Panza fall upon them and rout them. A Basque servitor next comes, and in battle with the Don, overcomes him ; his lament and invocation of his Lady Dulcinea ; the battle is resumed, and now Quixote is victorious ; a pœan, and again a song to his Lady.
MANUEL INFANTE, born in Seville, has made his home for some time in Paris. Most of his successful music for pianoforte has been introducod to the public by his brilliant compatriot Joso Iturbi.

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.
