: 'GREAT OCCASIONS IN OTHER LANDS '—XI

Mr. J. B. TREND : 'Spain '
MR. J. B. TREND has an intimate knowledge of Spain. After the war, lie was for a year correspondent there of the Athenœum, and lie has travelled extensively in Spain, Portugal, and Morocco, with intervals of musical criticism in London: Particularly interesting is his connection with th" Residencia de Estudiantes in Madrid, a Spanish residential university college which is run on English lines. There he has met informally most of the members of the new Republican Government. He is a great authority on Spanish music, and an intimate friend of the modern Spanish composer, Mannol do Falla, of whom ho published a life recently : he has also written on Music of Spanish History,' ' Spanish Madrigals,' and on Spanish music generally in the Oxford History of Music. Besides these and other musical works, he has published several books on Spain generally, such as ' A Picture of Modern Spain ' and ' Spain from the South.* His descriptions of Spanish customs and festivals are first hand, and he knows a great deal more about them than the average Spaniard.

: An Operatic Programme

Excerpts from
'THE BOHEMIAN GIRL'
(Balfe) (Baritone)(Soprano)(Soprano)(Tenor)(Tenor)(Bass)
THE WIRELESS CHORUS
THE B.B.C. LIGHT ORCHESTRA
Conducted by JOSEPH LEWIS
MICHAEL WILLIAM BALFE was a man of many parts, violinist and singer as well as conductor and composer: he was Papageno, for instance, in the first English production of Mozart's Magic Flute, in 1838. Born in Dublin in 1808, he saw a good deal of the world and knew many of its interesting people : honours and rewards came to him in generous measure, and he spent the last eighteen years of his life as a country gentleman in Hertfordshire. He lived till 1882.
The Bohemian Girl, the greatest of his many operatic successes, was produced in London in 1843 : this performance is within four days of the anniversary-November 27. It was afterwards sung in mhny parts of Europe, in German, Italian, and French versions, and remains to this day as popular as ever. Balfe's gift of simple melody and a confident knowledge of vocal effect, gained in his own experience as a singer, make it a classic of its kind. The story, modelled on Cervantes' Preciosa, is briefly this. Thaddseus (tenor) is anexiled nobleman who throws in his lot with the gipsy band led by Devilshoof (bass). The gipsies carry off the child Arline (soprano), who grows up to become the Bohemian girl of the title. She and Thaddseus love one another, and despite the wiles of the gipsy Queen, who has also lost her heart to Thaddæus, are happily united at last. Arline's father, Count Amheim (baritone) gives his consent on learning that the bridegroom is also of noble rank.

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.
