: A MILITARY BAND CONCERT

ESTHER COLEMAN (Contralto)
THE WIRELESS MILITARY BAND
Conducted by B. WALTON O'DONNELL
THE Asiatic side of Russia was known to Borodin, and something of its tradition was in his blood. His father was a Prince of the old State of Imeretia, beyond the Caucasus. The atmosphere in this piece is thus no spurious ' local colour ' such as composers have frequently learned at second-hand. The width of the great plains is suggested almost throughout the piece, by high sustained notes. Through the silence, so the composer tells us in a note in front of the score, one hears the beginning of a peaceful Russian song. This is played first by clarinet, to which the horn replies. A little later the cor anglais plays a melancholy Eastern song ; a caravan escorted by Russian soldiers crosses the desert, and one hoars the tramp of horses and camels as they fearlessly pursue their long, arduous journey.

Old English Songs :
Love will find out the way (Air from Stanford's Musick's Recreation on the Lyra Viol (1652)
Early one morning
(Traditional Air)
Golden slumber kiss your eyes (Tune, ' Mayfair')
Now is the month of Maying Morley (1557-1604)
VAUGHAN WILLIAMS ' enthusiastic interest in English Folk tunes is known to everybody. It has influenced his own composition in a striking way, lending it much of its distinctively English character. In the Suite which we are now to hear, the tunes are presented to us quite simply, and tell their own story with no other added interest than that of effective accompaniment and instrumentation.
The first movement is on the tune ' Seventeen come Sunday ' ; the second, which the composer has called ' Intermezzo,' is ' My Bonny Boy,' with a short merry section in the middle of the movement; the third is a march built up on folk songs from Somerset-an effective and vigorous march with an alternative section in 6/8 time.

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
