: A Symphony Concert

(Cerddorfa Genedlaethol Cymru)
ALTHOUGH Cluck was a German, and in many ways a typical German, he spent a great part of his life in Paris, identifying himself closely with the national spirit. He acted for a time as singing master to Mario Antoinette , and had the advantage of her patronage as well as that of other influential people. But his work itself was striking and valuable enough to make its own way ; it marks, indeed, an important milestone in the history of Opera.
Mottl, whose name appears here in conjunction with Gluck's, was, of course, the distinguished conductor, who did so much good work in rescuing from oblivion fine music of the old school which was in danger of being forgotten.
The Suite is in four movements, and not only are Gluck's great operas. Orpheus, Iphigenia in Aulis, and Armide, drawn upon, but an early Ballet called Don Juan. The first, an Introduction, has contrasting quick and slow melodies, and the second is called 'The Dance of the Blessed Spirits.' The third is a Musette, with the usual drone in the bass, and the last makes use of two bright airs, the second in an old dance form.

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.
