Fairy. Story, by PHYLLIS RICHARDSON. Songs by XORAH TARRANT (Contralto) Talk on Folk Songs, with Illustrations by JANET MACFARLANE

: Land

DVORAK oiica wrote three Movements which he designed for a Symphony.
Later he issued them as three Overtures, entitled respectively Nature, Carnival and Othello. Carnival was played on Sunday (3.30) by the Birmingham Station Orchestra.
Nature opens with an introduction, and then the First Main Theme is heard on the Clarinets, beginning with a repeated motive of two notes. This subject is found again prominently in the Othello Overture, and momentarily in Carnival.
Two or three other tunes appear, nearly all in the original key, before the dance-like Second Main Tune appears in a fresh key on the Strings, with a continuation, more serious in style, played by Violins in octaves, accompanied by Trombone chords.
The last piece of material is one .that the composer uses a good deal during the piece—a Woodwind phrase that trips lightly down the scale.
All the main ideas are worked up in the course of the Overture, and just when we are coming to a peaceful ending there is a very loud outburst.
The quiet mood is quickly resumed, and the work dies away with a reminiscence of its first melody.

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.
