MAY HUXLEY
THE WIRELESS SYMPHONY
ORCHESTRA '
Conducted by STANFORD ROBINSON
WEBER was uncommonly successful in catering for early nineteenth-century German tastes in Opera, which lay in the direction of folk-legends, tales of romantic and chivalrous deeds, and homely sentiment.
The Opera, The Marksman, is about mysterious deeds of black magic, the romantic love of a huntsman, and the machinations of his rival-a capital plot for those who like opera hot and strong, and don't trouble too much about its improbabilities. The Marksman went down at the first performance, so Weber wrote, with ' incredible enthusiasm ...' 'I was called before the curtain ... verses and wreaths came flying up. Soli Deo gloria.'
His Overture is built on melodies sung in the Opera.

FEW names are more familiar to listeners than that of Montague Phillips. He was bom in 1885, and studied at the Royal Academy of Music, of which he later became a Fellow, Professor of Composition, and Examiner. His music for the romantic Opera, The Rebel Maid, is perhaps his most considerable stage work. He has written also a Symphony, a Pianoforte Concerto, a Symphonic Poem, Boadicea and a Heroic Overture.

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.
