: THE GROSVENOR HOUSE ORCHESTRA

Directed by JOSEPH MEEUS
From GROSVENOR HOUSE, PARK LANE
THE world-touring dance band is by no means an innovation of this century.
The idea is at least a hundred years old, and began practically with Johann Strauss , the elder, who, in 1826, formed a band of fourteen, and played, among other pieces, his opus one, a waltz, in a Viennese inn during the Carnival. His fame and the fame of his band soon spread to the ends of Europe, and the way was open to others to do the same.
Joseph Gung 'l, a Hungarian, was one of them.
He rose to be bandmaster in an Austrian regiment and at first made concert tours with the band, but, later, scenting a greater personal profit, he formed his own band, toured with it and captured the applause, first of one continent, and then, going to America, the applause of another. He was almost as popular as the Strausses, and much more travelled. He wrote, too, nearly as many waltzes. His dance music is melodious, almost tyrannously rhythmic, and of great charm.
SPANISH dance tunes and rhythms have always attracted French and one or two
Russian composers, as the Spanish Rhapsodies, Caprices and Suites written by them clearly show. Ravel, in particular,is a Spanish ' fan.' His opera, L'Heure Espagnole, the Bolero, this Habanera and the Pavane pour uneInfante defvnte seem to prove it. The Spanish idiom is a very distinctive one, and with the possible exception of that of tho Hungarian gipsies, the most vigorously alivo of any in Europe.

JOSEPH JOACHIM RAFF was a pupil of Liszt, and was regarded as a musician of importance in the middle of last century. Ho held high positions, inspired public admiration for his very numerous compositions, and died in 1882. His reputation and the public's esteem died almost at the same time, and Raff is remembered now by one or two engaging little pieces like the ' Cavatina,' and this one, ' La Fileuse.'

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.

Welcome to BBC Genome

Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in programmes, online etc.

This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers, images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
