: SUNDAY ORCHESTRAL CONCERT

The Scottish Orchestra
(The Choral and Orchestral Union of Glasgow)
Leader, David McCallum
Conductor, Warwick Braithwaite
Joan Hammond (soprano) (Soloist, Joan Hammond )
This afternoon's concert features the famous Scottish Orchestra which was formed in 1891 for the purpose of organising and maintaining on a permanent basis a first-class orchestra that would be available for concerts throughout Scotland. The first conductor of this orchestra was Sir George Henschel (then Mr. Henschel), and the leader was Maurice Sons , who later became famous as principal of the Queen's Hall Orchestra.
Today the Scottish Orchestra can look back upon a great .tradition, not only of playing but of world-famous conductors and soloists who through the years, have associated themselves with this fine orchestra. The present leader,' David McCallum , was for several years Beecham's leader of the L.P.O.
This afternoon Warwick Braith waite, who is well known as one of the chief conductors of Sadler's Wells opera, conducts a programme which should appeal to all lovers of the best in orchestral music, for it shows the representative composers. Mendelssohn, Delius, Puccini, and Elgar. at their best.

Overture: Fingal's Cave - Mendelssohn
The Fair scene (A Village Romeo and Juliet) - Delius
Aria: One fine day (Madam Butterfly) - Puccini
Enigma Variations - Elgar

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
