: A Light Orchestral Concert

Relayed from the National Museum of Wales
THE complete Children's Corner Suite, which
Debussy dedicated ' To my dear little Chouchou, with her father's tender excuses for what . follows,' contains six pieces.: (1) Doctor Gradus ad Parnassus ; (2) Jimbo's Lullaby; (3) Serenade for the Doll ; (i) The Snow is dancing ; (5) The Little Shepherd ; (6) Golliwog's Cakewalk.
THE MASTERSINGERS, Wagner's one comedy, is for many people the best work he ever wrote.
The Prelude to Act III belongs to the tenderer moods of the work. It introduces the scene in which the poet-philosopher-cobbler, Hans Sachs , sits at his window, reading and meditating in the glow of the sun of midsummer morning, upon the life and the strife of men.
DURING the war between Turkey and Serbia in 1876, the great Russian pianist,
Nicholas Rubinstein , brother of the still more famous Anton Rubinstein , organized a charity concert for the relief of the wounded, and for the occasion Tchaikovsky, who was enthusiastic for the Slavonic cause, wrote this Slavonic March, which, in fact, he sometimes called a 'Russo-Serbian ' March.
The opening of the March is very sombre, 'in the manner of a funeral March.' Later, the Russian. National Hymn is heard, and the whole ends brilliantly and joyously.

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.
