: THE WIRELESS MILITARY BAND

Conductor, B. WALTON O'DONNELL
TREVOR WATKINS (Tenor) (Conducted by THE COMPOSER) COMPOSED specially for military band-not an arrangement of orchestral music-this piece was written in the autumn of 1930, and played for the first time by the B.B.C. in April last year. It is dedicated to Edward Clark. Bush has told us himself that it presents a modern, slightly jazzy, content in a classical framework-the form of the first movement of a symphony. Pianist as well as composer, he is a Londoner by birth and education. A student of the Royal Academy of Music from his eighteenth until his twenty-second year (1918-1922), he was a composition pupil of John Ireland's till 1927 ; he looks on that as having been of the greatest value and importance to him. His teachers for pianoforte have been Lily West, Moiseiwitsch, and Schnabcl. Since 1928 ho has been studying off and on in Germany, but has now settled down permanently in London ; he is a Professor at the R.A.M., and a member of the committee which selects the British works for submission to the Jury of the International Society for Contemporary Music. Several pieces of his have already been broadcast, notably a String Quartet, a Symphonic Impression for Orchestra, and Five Pieces for Strings, Clarinet and Horn. IT was Balakirev who founded the Russian school which included Cesar Cui, Mussorgsky,
Rimsky-Korsakov and Borodin. These men together launched the famous movement which put Russia so definitely on the map that, with the exception of Wagner's, no influence has more emphatically made its mark on modern music than theirs. Balakirev's watchful care of them was neatly summed up by Borodin ; he said : ' as long as we were eggs of one laying (meaning Balakirev's) we were very much alike; only when the chicks were hatched did each have its different plumage and fly off in its own chosen direction.' But throughout their careers, all those younger composers-and others, too, like Tchaikovsky-were glad to acknowledge their debt to his inspiration, and Russia undoubtedly owes him a great deal. His own music-there is not much of it-is of superb quality, rich, vivid, and picturesque ; it has been well said of it, of Islamey as much as of any, that it lies on the fringe of immortality. Originally a pianoforte piece, it has been brilliantly transcribed for military band by R. J. F. Howgill .

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.
