: THE GROSVENOR HOUSE ORCHESTRA

Directed by JOSEPH MEEUS
From GROSVENOR HOUSE, PARK LANE rpHE idea of setting an operatic text
JL to music selected from the works of one composer has often been carried out, but seldom with any great success. The music of Tohaikovsky, Chopin, and even Offenbach has been put to this purpose in operettas that had but a short life. Lilac Time is, however, the exception. It is an ironie fact that of nil the operatic texts set to Schubert's music, and he set many, the only one to succeed is the ono he didn't set.

JOAN COXON
The Mermaid's Song Fidelity
0 tuneful Voice
With Verdure clad (The Creation)
0 TUNEFUL VOICE,' one of many composed in London, is described with the famous
' Spirit Song ' in the catalogue of Haydn's works as ' composed for an English Lady of position.' This was probably the attractive Mrs. Schroeter, a widow, sixty years old, whom Haydn asserts ' fell in lovo with me, and had I been free, I should certainly have married her.'

: A Sonata Recital

BERNARD SHORE (Viola) and ANGUS MORRISON (Pianoforte)
BRAHMS' Sonata in E Flat, written for clarinet and pianoforte, is here transcribed for viola in place of the clarinet. Brahms composed it for the most famous clarinet player of his day, Muhlficld, who was so stout that the legend is he could support his instrument on his waistcoat without using his hands. Brahms
'wrote a number of works, combining the clarinet with other instruments for Mühlfield, whose proportions so far from interfering, may even have contributed to a mellow tone unsurpassed in Europe.
BENJAMIN DALE , member of a musical family
-his father was a talented amateur musician -had an orchestral overture performed when lie was only fifteen and a student at the Royal Academy. He discarded it, and continued to compose and discard, at last achieving, in his 17th year, a pianoforte sonata which was published. He then began to attract considerable notice. He gained awards in the well-known Cobbett competitions, particularly with n work for viola and pianoforte (one of many) which ho wrote for his friend, Lionel Tertis.
In the year before the War, Dale came to hold a high place in the renaissance of British music that was then so active, but in August, 1914, ho happened to be in Germany, and was interned at Ruhleben for the whole period of the War. Since then, his health, at first impaired by his internment, may have prevented him from writing much. In any case, his fastidiousness prevents his output becoming large, though it ensures such a consistently high standard, that his first professor, Frederick Corder , claims for Dale that he has written ' fewer and better works than "any English composer of his generation.'

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.
