: ANTON RUBINSTEIN

Ocean Symphony played by the BBC' Symphony Orchestra, conducted by Sir Granville Bantock
In an article in the RADIO TIMES some years ago, Sir Granville Bantock said that Rubinstein's Ocean Symphony suggested many aspects and moods of the sea. His description of the seven movements may be summarised as follows : 1. First subject, strong, rhythmic, and descriptive ; second subject, expressive, melodious, and seductive. 2. A vivid picture of storm at sea, suggesting foam-flecks of flying spray, and the swish of waters threading through the shingle as the waves retreat. 3. A calm and serene sea, in a happy and gracious mood, bathed in sunlight. 4. The mood changes to that of a somewhat rough and boisterous, yet always genial humour. S. The murmuring voice of the sea becomes a soothing lullaby. It appears to suggest the luring of a voyager to a false sense of security ; yet leaving him conscious of dangers ahead, lurking in the mysterious depths. 6. In the form of a Scherzo and Trio, one of the most delightful movement. of the work, presenting yet another aspect of sea-magic. 7. Preceded by an introductory episode drawn from No. 5. The solemn theme of a chorale leads to a majestic climax, which may be regarded as a Hymn of Thanksgiving for deliverance from the perils of'the sea.

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.
