: ORCHESTRAL CONCERT

Conductor, Gideon Fagan
Margaret Maddison (piano)
The form of Cesar Franck's Symphonic Variations is novel in that the cyclic method of construction-an extension of Liszt's method of thematic transformation that Franck perfected and made his own-is here applied to the variation form. Although continuous, the music is divided into ten sections: introduction, statement of theme and six variations, interlude, and finale. The introduction is based on a typically Franckian melody heard on the piano at its first entry. It is used in the lovely interlude and again, together with the theme of the variations, in the brilliant and high-spirited finale.
Margaret Maddison
As a result of her successful trip to Canada and the States early last year Margaret Maddison was booked to cross the Atlantic again in the autumn and actually was to have sailed in the ill-fated Athenia in October. The outbreak of war saved her life.
She has broadcast already twice this year, has played at the National Gallery Midday Concerts, at a concert in Leeds, and in London with the British Women's Orchestra.
Bom at Kettering, she comes of a musical family. Her sisters, Janet and Joyce, play with Hope Timpson in the Maddison Trio and are well known to Midland listeners.

: BRITISH RED CROSS SOCIETY CONCERT

London Philharmonic Orchestra
Leader, Thomas Matthews
Conducted by Constant Lambert and Malcolm Sargent
Eileen Joyce (piano)
Conducted by Constant Lambert
Constant Lambert 's Horoscope was written last year and was produced at Sadler's Wells in January. Its theme is the very ancient belief in the influence exerted on human beings by sun and moon in conjunction with the twelve divisions of the zodiac. The chief characters are a man and a woman. He has been born with the sun in Leo and the moon in Gemini ; her moon is also in Gemini, her sun in Virgo. In the words of the composer: The two opposed signs of Leo and Virgo ... struggle to keep the man and woman apart. It is by their mutual sign, the Gemini, that they are brought together and by the moon that they are finally united.'
Unfortunately owing to lack of time No. 3 Valse for the Gemini has had to be omitted.
Conducted by Malcolm Sargent
Rachmaninoff's Second Concerto was written in 1900 for the Royal Philharmonic Society of London. By many musicians it is considered his finest work. Certainly it is the most popular and has enjoyed continued success from its first performance.

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.

Welcome to BBC Genome

Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in programmes, online etc.

This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers, images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
