: The Foundations of Music

MODERN BRITISH PIANOFORTE MUSIC
Played by EDGAR L. BAINTON
EDGAR BAINTON is one of tho distinguished musicians of the present day who look back gratefully to having enjoyed Sir Charles Stan ford's teaching at the Royal College. He now takes a foremost place himself in the teaching world as Principal of the Newcastle-on-Tyno Conservatoire. As a conductor, too, he has done much to improve the standard of music in the North, both choral and orchestral. Much of his music has been played in London, at the Proms and other concerts, and he has been long known to wireless listeners not only as a composer, but as conductor and pianist. He has taken part in broadcast programmes as soloist and in chamber music, at most, if. not all, of the B.B.C.'s stations.

: ' THE NEW SPIRIT IN LITERATURE '—VII

The Hon. HAROLD NICOLSON , C.M.G. :
' Does Modern Literature Exist ? '
IN his last talk Mr. Nicolson investigated the spirit of the age ; does a corresponding ' new spirit ' exist, in literature ? Out of the many specialized and diverse branches of modern literature Mr. Nicolson this evening extracts a common factor. A feeling of discontent is one sign of tho times ; another is a disbelief in all forms of sentimentality. A third and even more important element in the attitude of modern writers is their emphasis on experienoo as opposed to revelation: analysis of moods as opposed to simplification of emotion. This last point will be taken up more fully next week by Mr. Nicolson.

THE B.B.C. LIGHT ORCHESTRA
Conducted by JOSEPH LEWIS
THE son of a violinist, Grétry began his musical career as a choir-boy, but it was the stage rather than the church which interested him for the greater part of his life. The list of his operas and smaller dramatic works is a very long one, and though they are slight in structure and conception, they aro full of the most pleasing melody, and their popularity is quite easy to understand. The opera from which this ballet music comes is founded on the touching story of the devoted couple whoso affection was all the stronger after each in turn had found the other out in a moment of infidelity.
Listeners will remember how Diana had given Procis a dart which could not fail to find its quarry, and that Cephalus unwittingly slew his wife with it.

: ' MOSAIC '—VII

'RESURGAM' tomorrow will remind listeners that the 'In Memoriam ' programme last Armistice Day was the first use of the , method of reinforcing poetry with music now used in ' Mosaic ' programmes. It was compounded of war poems with a background of Elgar's ' Knigma Variations.' Last week's ' Seasons ' Mosaic, by the way, was built up out of the following poems : ' Ode to Fancy ' (Keats), ' Autumn ' (Longfellow), ' Ode to Autumn ' (Hood), ' November' (John Keble ), ' Winter Delights ' (Cam-pion), As You Like It ' (Shakespeare), ' The Plough' (Richard Henry Home), ' Earliest Spring' (Howells), 'In Memoriam ' (Tennyson), ' In May ' (W. H. Davies ), ' Thyrsis' (Matthew Arnold ), ' Lying in the Grass' (Edmund Gosse ), ' A Summer Day ' (Alexander Hume ), and 'Autumn' (Keats), with music from Frederick Cowen 's ' Seasons ' ballet.

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.
