Even before he'd done speaking, the air was thick with swirling, choking smoke, and we could hear nothing but the roar and crackle of the flames. But Father, with some of the others, was outside already, dragging the burning faggots away from the stockade, stamping out sparks, and pouring water from the bucket's we parsed out to them. In less than no time, they were back inside the .stockade, most all of them gasping for breach.'

: PROMENADE CONCERT

Part 2
Jongen wrote his Symphonic Concertante for organ and orchestra in 1933. The first English performance was given in Birmingham barely three momihs ago witlh Dr. Thalben-Ball a-s soloist, but until tonight it has not been heard in London. The composer's choice of the title Symphonie Concertante rather than Concerto indicates that, important as is the organ's role, the work was not primarily written to show off {.he instrument's scope and the soloist's virtuosity, but is rather more a symphony for a Large orchesitna including an organ along wirh its bass clarinet, double bassoons, four horns, three trombones, tuba. and drums as well as normal wood-wind and strings.
There are four movement. The opening
Allegro molto moderaio is headed in modo dorian.' The second begins in tfhe light style suggested by the title ' Divertimento,' but soon introduces more serious material above wh-iah the composer writes Religioso in the score. The following stow movement reveals Jongen's skill as an orchestrator both in the impresionistic delicacy of the opening and closing sections and in the romantic opulence of the central climax. The finale is a brilliant Toccata. Joan Chissell

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.
