: A CONCERT

BARRINGTON HOOPER (Tenor) REGINALD KINGS'SOrchestra
WAGNER'S one Comic Opera had been taking shape in his mind for something like twenty years before he settled down in earnest to compose it. The original scheme must have undergone many changes during that long period, from the first sketches made in 1854, but it seems to be clear that the composer's first in- . tent ion was to make it in some sort a burlesque of Tannhäuser and of the song contest which is its central point.
The old Mastersingers rook their art so seriously that their meetings were usually held in church, and their solemnity, as well as the rather stem formality of their rules of song, is very happily hit off in Wagner's big theme with which his opera opens. Its blend of stately pomp with a schoolmasterly air, is unmistakable.
Another, scarcely less well-known episode, is the Apprentices' dance, which is simply the Masters' tune with the time doubled, forming a merry burlesque of its dignity.

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

Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in programmes, online etc.

This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers, images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
