: GLAZUNOV

Characteristic suite, Op. 9 : 1 Introduction and Rustic dance ; 2 Intermezzo scherzando ; 3 Carnival ; 4 Pastorale ; 5 Oriental dance ; 6 Elegy ; 7 Procession played by the BBC Northern Orchestra
Leader, Laurance Turner
Conductor, Gideon Fagan
Glazunov was seventy-one years of age when he died in 1936. He was, therefore, a young man at the time that the great circle of Russian composers, led by Rimsky-Korsakov, were at the height of their powers. In the 'eighties he was the rising hope of the nationalists ; in the 'nineties he came under the influence of Brahms and other Western composers. After the war of 1914-18 he played a large part in the reorganisation of the Leningrad Conservatoire.

: SUMMER

from Haydn's ' The Seasons '
Recit. : Her face in dewy veil conceal'd
Air : From out the fold the shepherd drives
Recit. : Lo ! now aslant the dew-bright earth
Trio and Chorus : Behold on high he mounts
Recit. : Now swarms the village o'er the mead
Recit. : 'Tis noon, and now direct the sun
Cavatina: Distressful nature fainting sinks
Recit : 0 welcome now
Air : 0 how pleasing to the senses
Recit : Behold ! slow settling o'er the lurid grove
Chorus: Hark ! the deep tremendous voice
Trio and Chorus : Now cease the conflicts
Elsie Suddaby (soprano)
Eric Greene (tenor)
Norman Walker (bass)
BBC Chorus
Chorus-Master, Leslie Woodgate
BBC Orchestra
Led by Marie Wilson
Conductor, Sir Adrian Boult
The Seasons was Haydn's last work of any importance, but one may dismiss from the mind at once the knowledge that it is the composition of an old man approaching seventy years. There are no traces of decadence ; the mind is alert and the skill as great as ever, while the ideas are fresh and there is a never-ending fertility of invention.
The poem, which is a German adaptation of Thomson's ' The Seasons', ', deals with the varying aspects of country life during the seasons of the year, and whatever its demerits as poetry it at least offers admirable opportunities for musical illustrations.

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.
