: EUGENE CRUFT OCTET

DOROTHY MORRIS (Soprano)
EDERN JONES (Baritone)
FIGARO, the famous town barber of Seville, was a creation of Beaumarchais. He appears in both this Opera of Rossini and Mozart's Marriage of Figaro. In this gay ' patter ' song he struts about, proclaiming the delights of being trusted and looked up to by all sorts of people, especially lovers, who confide in him and ask his advice and help.
STANFORD'S collections of Irish folk songs are famous. One of the most engaging of such songs is My Love's an Arbutus, in which the cool charm of the woods is mated to a flexibly curving melody that seems to express in music the grace of the maiden who is like
... tin arbutus by the borders of Lene,
So slender and shapely in her girdle of green.
THE Russian, Anton Rubinstein , one of the greatest Pianists of last century, achieved fame also (at any rate, in his own country) as Conductor nnd Composer. He became Master of Music nt the Imperial Russian Court, and established the St. Petersburg Conservatoire of Music, of which he was Principal for several years. For these services he received a title of nobility. Successful world touts followed: after one American tour it is said he was offered £25.000 to come back and give another fifty concerts, but his dread of the voyage prevailed and he refused. His Fancy Dress Ball Suite, one of the numbers from which is now to be played, was originally a set of twenty Pianoforte Duets.
WHEN Robert Hichens ' novel, The Garden of Allah, was dramatized some years ago,
Sir Landon Ronald wrote the incidental music for the production. The full suite from this music consists of the preludes and interludes to the various parts of the play, re-scored.

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.
