: ORCHESTRAL CONCERT

From France
Yvonne Gouvernay Choir
Orchestre de la
Radiodiffusion Frangaise
(Leader, Rene Alix )
Conductor, Roger Desormlere
Bach
Suite No 2, in B minor, for flute and strings
Concerto in C minor, for violin, oboe, and strings
Cantata No. 106: Gottes Zeit ist die allerbeste Zeit
Recorded by Radiodiffusion Franchise
Bach wrote four Suites for orchestra, though he himself called them Overtures, taking the title, of the opening movement as that of the whole Suite. No. 2 in B minor has an extended overture in the French style, consisting of a brilliant Allegro preceded and followed by a slow section. The succeeding movements comprise a Rondo, a Sarabande, two Bourrees, a Polonaise, a Minuet and Badinerie.
The Concerto in C minor is usually played on two claviers with string orchestra, but according to the German musicologist Max Seiffert , it was originally designed for violin, oboe, and strings.
Cantata No. 106, ' God's time is the best time,' was composed at Weimar and is a funeral cantata, though it is not known for whose death it was written. In Parry's words, it is ' one of the earliest of Bach's works of this kind which has taken a very deep hold on the affections of musicians.'

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.
