THE B.B.C. ORCHESTRA
(Section D)
Conducted by EDWARD CLARK
THOMAS, although known almost wholly now by Mignon, was the composer of at least twenty operas and full-sized ballets which enjoyed great popularity in the second half of last century. In his own day, indeed, he was easily the most popular of composers for the Paris stage. The latter part of his life was spent, however, in teaching, as head of the famous Paris Conservatoire--a post which he held for twenty-five years. It was the success of his Opera Hamlet, following on Mignon, which won him that distinction, and to Mignon lie owed the award of the Grand Cross of the Legion of Honour, which was given him on the occasion of its thousandth performance.
The Opera Raymond, of which only the Overture is now played, although that is well known and popular, appeared in 1851. LIKE Glazounov, Ippolitov-Ivanov has been recognized by the present Government of Russia. In 1923 he was given the title of ' People's Artist of the Republic.' Born in 1859, he was a pupil of Rimsky-Korsakov, and has held the posts of conductor at the Tiflis Opera, and Professor of Composition in tho Conservatoire at Moscow. In composing music with an Eastern flavour he is on ground which is familiar to him, and the Caucasian Sketches, of which this is the last movement in. asuite of four, are vividly descriptive of their Eastern subject.

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.
