: AN ORCHESTRAL CONCERT

MIRIAM LICETTE (Soprano)
THE WIRELESS ORCHESTRA (Leader, S. KNEALE KELLEY
)
Conducted by John ANSELL
(Solo Pianists, VICTOR HELY-HUTCHINSON and BERKELEY
MASON)
THIS is a series of little musical jokes, in which the composer portrays different animals-fish, flesh and fowl. One of the pieces, the Violoncello solo called The Swan, became very popular ; but the composer would not allow the Suite as a whole to be published in his lifetime.
The creatures depicted in the various sketches are, in the order of their appearance: The Lion, Hens and Cocks, Wild Asses, Tortoises, The Elephant, Kangaroos, Fish, Donkeys, The Cuckoo,
Birds in general, Pianists (these are odd animals, we know!), Fossils, and the Swan. A brilliant Finale winds up the show.

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.
