: BBC NORTHERN ORCHESTRA

Conducted by Basil Cameron
The history of Honegger's Pastorale d'ete ' is curious. A Marmande violin maker, Leo Sir , had constructed six new instruments-from a ' sub-double bass ' to a ' super-soprano violin '-which with the four normal members of the string group would form a novel sort of dixtet
Honegger was invited lo write a composition for this combination and sketched out a Pastoral, only to abandon it owing to its unsuitability.
He finally wrote a fresh work,
Hymnus ', for Sir's ' dixtet ' and remodelled the Pastoral for string quintet, four solo wood-wind, and a hom. Embellished with a quotation from Rimbaud -' I have embraced the summer dawn 'this charmingly idyllic little work won immediate popularity with its first performance on February 17, 1921, under Vladimir Golschmann.

: MUSIC WHILE YOU WORK

Harry Leader and his Band
Harry Leader, who has been a figure in the musical world for over sixteen years, owes most of his success to the training given him as a youngster by his father, who was Russian bo:n. and was a professor of music in Russia before coming over here. He it was who taught Harry music. starting him on the violin from which he went to saxophone, clarinet, and piano, and to the technique of arranging. Long before the war Harry Leader toured all over the Continent with a part-American band ; left it to go into business ; left business to form his own band, and from then has never forsaken music. He first broadcast in 1934 in the ' First Time Here ' series, in the course of which he discovered and introduced to the microphone many who are now big names in broadcasting.

Conductor, Guy Warrack
Fromental Halevy (1799-1862), composer, teacher, and writer on musical subjects, was a pupil of Cherubini at the Paris Conservatoire, where he gained the Prix de Rome. After studying in Italy he returned to Paris and became in turn professor of harmony, counterpoint and fugue, and composition at the* Conservatoire, as well as teaching singing at the Opera. Among the many famous musicians who were his pupils were Gounod and Bizet, the latter eventually becoming his son-in-law. As a composer he wrote numerous operas.
Bizet's Symphony in C was probably composed during the time that he was studying under Halevy. Bizet was then about fifteen years of age. The manuscript is preserved in the library of the Paris Conservatoire. Its four movements are designed on the lines of a classical symphony, and although the composer uses the idiom of his period there is a striking individuality about the treatment, particularly as regards the orchestration, which is highly original and piquant in the French style.

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.
