Conducted by W. A. CLARKE

LIKE more than one of the modern Russian composers, Rimsky-Korsakov knows something of the East at first hand. Listeners may very likely remember that his first important piece was actually written during a cruise in Eastern waters when lie was on duty as a Naval officer, the cruise which he combined for a time with music.
The story of Sadko, which is in some sort a Russian version of the old Orpheus legend, attracted Rimsky-Korsakov more than once. It was the subject of one of his early tone poems, as well as of the opera, and the tale was made by him from old Russian cnronicies. in the opera this song is sung by a tenor, although it is now often borrowed by sopranos; it is familiar, too, as an instrumental piece. and its dreamy, langourous melody lends itself well to performance on the violin, or indeed on almost any melodious instrument. In the opera it is a Hindu merchant who sings it, telling of his own country and of his home-sickness.
HOLST is one of the comparatively few modem English composers who have shown a real interest in the value of Military Band music, by composing specially for it.
This Suite is in three movements. The first is a Chaconne, a modern treatment of an old form in which tho music is built up on one phrase repeated over and over, generally in the bass, although occasionally in other parts. The second is a melodious and graceful Intermezzo, and the third is a lively and vigorous March.
AT the end of the Rhinegold, the first of the four music dramas which make up The Nibelung's Ring, Valhalla, the home of the gods, has been built by the help of the stolen gold. It is hidden from view by a thick mist which Donner cleaves with his mighty hammer. Then we see the great bridge, like a rainbow, stretching across the valley to the noble castle and over it the gods pass in procession, to their new home.

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.
