: THE BRIGHTON MUNICIPAL ORCHESTRA

Conductor, JAN HURST
Relayed from TiiE Aquarium, BRIGHTON
THE play of Rosamunde, Princess of Cyprus, was by Madamo von Chezy, remembered also as the authoress of the libretto of Weber's opera, Euryanthe. Her son, who was one of Schubert's friends, has left it on rocoid that all the music for the play--eleven separate numbers -was completed in five days, and that the only orchestral rehearsal lasted less than two hours. None the less, the reception given to the music on the production of the play was so cordial that the Overture had to be twice repeated. At the end of the play Schubert himself had to appear and make his acknowledgments. Bat the play itself was such poor stuff that even Schubert's music could not keep it alive, and the music was put aside and lost for many years. As English people are proud to remember, it was re-discovered and given back to a grateful world by Sir George Grove and Sir Arthur Sullivan , who made the journey to Vienna in 1867 specially to look for it and other buried treasures.
SMETANA, although overshadowed by his former pupil Dvorak, was none the less the first Bohemian to raise the music of his native country to a distinguished place in the world's art. Outside the confines of its own land, Czech music was known little, if at all, before his day, though the national melodies had more than once found their way into the music of the great masters-the' Emperor's Hymn ' of Haydn being a notable example.
In 1866 Smetana was appointed Director of the National Theatre in Prague, and in the same year produced the opera which has remained his most famous work-Die Verkaufte Braut. It is a really comic opera, text and music alike being pervaded by the true comedy spirit, and when adequately presented, never fails to achieve the success it deserves as one of the best of all modern works in its own class.

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.
