(Section C)
Led by Marie Wilson
Conducted by Frank Bridge
Domenico Cimarosa , an eighteenth-century Neapolitan composer, secured world-wide fame with his operas. His biggest success was The Secret Marriage, which was first performed in 1792 before Leopold II at Vienna, where Cimarosa was at that time Court Kapellmeister.
The music of this opera still retains its freshness and brilliance, which are reflected to the full in the overture. In style Cimarosa's music, with its inexhaustible flow of simple and charming melodies, has much in common with that of Mozart.
Debussy's ' Petite Suite ' was originally composed, about a dozen years before the ' Nocturnes', as a duet for piano (four hands), the medium to which Schubert was so much attracted, and to which many composers have been drawn at least one* in their career. It was, for instance, the original form of Ravel's popular ' Mother Goose' Suite, which he afterwards expanded into a ballet.
The ' Petite Suite' was first played by the composer with Jacques Durand , a son of his publisher, who had been a fellow student with him. "was the. latter who made the piano 8010 transcription which is in general use. but the orchestra] version is the work of Henri Biisser , a prix de
Rome of 1893, who is known as a composer of several operas and a ballet.

: 'GARRISON THEATRE'

Devised by Charles Shadwell and Harry S. Pepper
Famous artists have promised to appear (engagements permitting) at the Garrison Theatre tonight to entertain the troops, including Norman Long , Adelaide Hall, and Arthur Kingsley and Tonie Forde
Jack ('Tiny') Warner will be there
The Garrison Theatre Orchestra conducted by Lieut. Charles Shadwell
(late West Yorkshire Regiment)
Produced by Harry S. Pepper
This popular series owes its existence to the fact that Charles Shad well, Director of the BBC Variety Orchestra, was a lieutenant in the West Yorks in the Great War, and was invalided home from France in 1914 and sent to the Northern
Command Depot at Ripon, where his main duty was to look after entertainment. His headquarters were the Garrison Theatre-hence the name of the series. Almost every famous artist of the time performed there under Charlie's baton, from T. E. Dunville to Chirgwin the White-Eyed Kaffir, from R. G. Knowles to George Mozart.
Something of the atmosphere of this wartime theatre, with its khaki audience, Charles Shadwell and Harry Pepper have conjured up in the present series, to the success of which] Jack Warner has done so much to contribute. He has been hauled over' the coals by more than one listener, by the way, for referring to his brother as a sergeant in the Life Guards. The Life Guards have no such rank-the equivalent rank being Corporal of Horse.

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.
