Once a year in Leipzig the proceeds of a special performance of opera or play are devoted to the pension fund of the orchestra. In 1839 Victor Hugo 's play Ruy Bias was selected, and Mendelssohn was asked to write an overture and incidental music for the occasion. He disliked the play wholly, and at first he refused, but the object for which it was being given appealed to him so much that he relented. By then only a few days were left for the task, and it is on record that the overture was conceived and completed, ready for the band parts to be copied, between a Tuesday evening and the foHowing Friday morning. A chorus for women's voices was also completed during theso same days. Mendelssohn mentions both works in a letter to his mother, referring to this overture as ' The Overture to the Pension Fund.'
There are four main themes, one which begins with only a few bars of solemn introduction, and follows with an* energetic figure of tragic import, a soaring melody mainly in quavers, a more suave and gracious tune, and last a vigorous stirring theme suggesting pomp and chivalry.

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.
