: A Light Classical Concert

JEANNE HERRIES (Soprano)
THE RONDO PLAYERS
RETCHANINOV is known in this country chiefly as a song-writer, and that is a not unfair estimate of his value as a composer, for the graceful sentiment and refined musicianship of his songs put them on a high level of charm. He is, however, more versatile than that, as would be expected of a pupil of Rimsky-Korsakov. He has written operas, symphonies, and a respectable amount of chamber music, this trio being the curlier one of two.

: A Sonata Recital

DAVID FREEDMAN (Violin) and HENRY BRONKHURST (Pianoforte)
APART from the separate motives which may have prompted them, both Thomas Hardy and Sir Edward Elgar made something of the same gesture at a certain point in their lives. Hardy, content in his determination to write no more novels, leased his mind and his pen to the poet that was part of him. So, in another sense, did Elgar. who, soon after the War, turned his attention, for the first time in his maturity, to chamber music, and found, as had Hardy, his creative powers wore as undimmed and adequate. This Violin Sonata was the first work of this period, which covered the composition also of the String Quartet and the Piano Quintet, and then lapsed. For ten years, with isolated exceptions, Elgar has added nothing further to his gifts to posterity.

SONGS OF HAYDN sung by JOHN ARMSTRONG and JOAN COXON
JOHN ARMSTRONG
From the Canzonets :
Piercing Eyes Tho Wanderer Sympathy Content
Pleasing Pains
She never told her Love Sailor's Song
HAYDN wrote a hundred symphonies and only fifty original songs. It is reasonable to conclude he had no such great urge to write songs as, for example, Schubert had. Ho was fifty years old before he wrote any at all, and then only because his publishers, Artaria, of Vienna, asked for them. Those Artaria published are mostly set to trivial words, but words probably meant little or nothing to Haydn once he had a tune in his head. Like Swift, of whom it was said he could write beautifully about a broomstick, these older composers could mould doggerel to any happy shape they pleased. The songs sung tonight are, however, altogether in a different class. The two books of Canzonets Haydn published in London are among the most pleasing of all his songs.

EDWARD NAPRAVNIK was born in Bohemia, lived most of his life in Russia, rose to be chief conductor of the Imperial Opera, and died in 1915, aged seventy-six. He composed a number of works which are masterly in technique, but reminiscent in subject matter—conductors are always at the disadvantage of becoming saturated with what they hear and of finding it impossible to wring their minds dry of it.
Don Juan , of which this is the overture, is a concert vocal setting of a poem by Count Alexei Tolstoy , a poet and dramatist and distantly related to Leo, the Tolstoy.

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.
