LASSEN occupied a much more important place in the music of his own day than would now bo guessed from the small sharo which his music has in programmes. Although a Dane by birth, he is claimed as belonging to Belgian music ; ho spent a great part of his life in Brussels, entering its Conservatoire when he was onlv twelve, and winning the first prize for pianoforte at the age of fourteen. He won a fine reputation as a composer, and after Liszt had brought out one of his operas at Weimar with outstanding success, he remained there, and succeeded Liszt as conductor of the Opera in 1861. He brought out Wagner's Tristan there in 1874, at a time when it required some courage to do that; he was only the second Opera director who had given it. He composed not only operas, but symphonic music, and in Germany they still give his incidental music to Goethe's Faust at most full dress performances of the play. But, apart from that, he is now remembered almost sololy by some of his songs, best of all by ' All Souls Day.' .

DESPITE the press of many duties and immense hard work, Saint-Saens found timo to trave' often, and took a keen delight in seeing and hearing what he could in other lands. A eood deal of his bright and picturesquo music was in, spired by visits to other countries and ho was often happily successful, as in this recollection of Lisbon, in seizing hold of just such character istics as can set before us something of the scenes he was recalling.
WORMSER, although known to us in this country almost solely by his light-hearted music for the pantomine The Prodigal Son, was an in dustrious composer who won many successes in his own day, chiefly with music for the stage. One of the distinguished people who won the biggest prize of the French world of music, the Prix de Rome of the Paris Conservatoire, he spent most of his life in his native city of Paris dying there in 1926 at the age of seventy-five.

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.
