THE BIRMINGHAM STUDIO AUGMENTED ORCHESTRA
Conducted by JOSEPH LEWIS
THE Carnival Overture, is part of a larger work consisting of three Overtures which Dvorak intended to be performed at once. As he conceived it. the three were called, Nature, Life, and Love. But in this country the second, much better known than either of the others, appears always under the title Carnival. The three were performed together under the composer's direction, at the farewell concert which he gave in Prague before leaving for America and at the first concert which he gave there.
The Carnival Overture begins in a real Carnival spirit with a brisk and joyous tune. The falling fourth, which is three times repeated at the end of the theme becomes the starting point for the next tune, and there is one other, introduced by the viola, which has a large share in the first section. A second main tune appears soon, of rather melancholy character, and thereafter the Overture pursues the customary course, except that the section which is known as the ' working out' is interrupted by a tittle slow episode in which the flute plays a plaintive melody over a reiterated phrase on the English Horn.

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.
