: THE LONDON SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA

Leader, George Stratton
Solomon (pianoforte)
Conducted by Sir Henry J. Wood from the Golders Green Hippodrome,
London
(Solomon, solo pianoforte)
Since the war the London Symphony Orchestra has given several Sunday concerts at Golders Green Hippodrome and at Streatham Hill Theatre with great success, showing that the suburbs welcome performances of fine orchestral music just as keenly as the West End.
Berlioz and Strauss
The first part of the programme that will be broadcast this afternoon opens with Berlioz's brilliant and tuneful overture, ' Le carnaval romain '. This is followed by a complete contrast both in style and. mood in Strauss's symphonic poem ' Don Juan ', which was written in 1888, when the composer was twenty-four. The score is prefaced with thirty-two lines from Lenau's poem, but these do not outline a definite sequence of events to be portrayed in the music: rather do they offer a general impression of Don Juan himself-an idealist who seeks the perfect woman.
The impetuous opening of the work vividly portrays the young idealist in search of the ideal woman.
One of the most beautiful melodies that Strauss ever wrote is the theme first introduced on the oboe that represents Donna Anna , who is the woman that came nearest to his idea of perfection, although he discarded her in the hope of securing an even greater triumph.
Lesser-Known Concerto
Beethoven's Piano Concerto in B flat was published as No. 2, despite the fact that it was actually composed before the C major which is now known as No. 1. It was written during the composer's twenty-fifth year, when he was still under the influence of Haydn and Mozart. Cramer relates that upon hearing Mozart's C minor concerto, Beethoven exclaimed, ' We shall never be able to write anything like that '. The solo part underwent certain modifications for the composer's visit to Prague in 1798, but the orchestration remained simple, employing only a small wood-wind section and two horns.

: MUSIC FROM BRISTOL CATHEDRAL

The BBC Chorus
The BEC Orchestra (Section C)
Led by Marie Wilson
Hubert W. Hunt (organ)
Conducted by Leslie Woodgate
This afternoon a very interesting broadcast is being given from Bristol Cathedral. It is the intention of the BBC to broadcast from this cathedral from time to time so that listeners will have the opportunity of hearing a number of great works which were written specifically for performance in a church, with all the religious significance and peculiarities of acoustics which give life to music of this kind, though not necessarily forming a part of the service.

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.
