: MICHAELOFF

and his Mazurka Orchestra, with Maxim Doroff
It is just over a year since Michaeloff founded his Mazurka Orchestra. Some of its members were in his famous Bessarabian Orchestra, and these, with the addition of other personnel, have made the new combination one of the most popular of its kind.
Michaeloff's father, who died some years ago, was one of the principal military band conductors in Russia, and he it was who gave his son his first lessons. When he came to this country Michaeloff brought with him a knowledge of Bessarabian music such as was at the time possessed by few others in the country. The catchy tunes and virile arrangements rendered by his first orchestra immediately caught on, and he has been playing a great deal of this type of music ever since.

: PROMENADE CONCERT

Trefor Jones (tenor). Henry Hoist (violin). BBC Symphony Orchestra (leader, Paul Beard ), conductor, Sir Adrian Boult
From the Royal Albert Hall , London
William Walton's Violin Concerto was written for and dedicated to that great American violinist Jascha Heifetz , and was first performed by him with the Cleveland Symphony Orchestra conducted by Artur Rodzinsky in 1939. The first performance in England was given on November 1 last year by the London Philharmonic Orchestra with Henry Hoist as soloist and the composer conducting.
The most immediately striking feature of the music is its rich profusion of melody of a lyrical and expressive character eminently suited to the genius of the violin. Particularly is this true of the opening slow movement and the trio (canzonetta) of the scherzo, which is based on a charming tune that the composer keeps on repeating in a Schubertian manner as if for the sheer joy of hearing it over and over again. The second subject of the brilliant and highly organised finale is an extraordinarily long and tenuous tune. The scoring is light and the rhythms of the quick movement are very characteristic of Walton's pungent and vigorous 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.
