THE DELUGE is an Oratorio based upon a * poem by Louis Gallet. The Prelude may be taken as suggesting the idea of God's judgment on the world, and His reconciliation. A majestic. slow Introduction leads to a fugal section, which is followed by a gentle and peaceful songlike portion, concluding the Prelude.
WRITING to his friend and benefactor,
Madame von Meek, in 1880, Tchaikovsky said that his Muse had been very benevolent, for he had written two long works very rapidly. One was the 1812 Overture, of which he said. ' It has no great artistic value ' ; the other was the Serenade in C (his Op. 48), which, he says, 'on the contrary, I wrote from an inward impulse ; I felt it.' It was one of the works he conducted in London in 1888, when he was paying his first visit to this country.
The Serenade contains four Movements-a piece in ' First Movement' form, with themes of an old-world cast; a Waltz ; an Elegy ; and a Finale based on folk-tunes, one a hauling song of the Volga Boatmen, and the other a street song.

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.
