From THE SHEPHERD'S BUSH
PAVILION
JOHN HERBERT FOULDS is a Manchester man, and was at one time a member of the Halle Orchestra. In London he has had a good deal of experience as conductor, and as an organizer of concerts. He has written a great deal, and sometimes on an impressive scale. For example, his biggest work, A World Requiem, needs a huge number of players in performance, and in this respect challenges comparison with Berlioz's Requiem. For some years this work was performed at the Albert Hall on Armistice Day.

: THE MIDLAND STUDIO ORCHESTRA

Directed by FRANK CANTELL
Relayed from MIDLAND REGIONAL rpHE abbreviation ' arr.,' which appears so often in the programmes, is short, of course, for ' arranged by.' The strange thing about almost all orchestral music that is not performed definitely in the Opera House or a large concert hall is that it is presented to listeners in arrangements. This means that the original orchestration is reduced for fewer players, or, as in the case of pieces written originally for.pianoforte, is orchestrated for a band of so many players. Such work is highly technical, and some of the names that appear so unobtrusively after ' arr.' are amongst the most skilled and best equipped musicians in the profession.

ALBERT SAMMONS (Violin)

BOTH César Franck and Eugene Ysaye were born in Liege, and it was natural that the older musician should be interested in the younger, particularly as Ysaye was, in the opinion of many. the greatest violinist of his day. So struck was Franck at the talent of the young violinist, then about 28, that he determined to write for him and Madame Bordes-Pene , a great pianist who died early, a work worthy of them. This is the Sonata he composed with that purpose in view.
SCHUBERT was nineteen when he wrote three
Sonatinas for Violin and Piano, of which this one in D is the first. He had written much chamber music already, but mostly for strings only. In this year, 1816, he appeared to have become taken up with the possibilities of the pianoforte in combination with other instruments, and for the next year or two, most of his chamber music compositions are scored to include a pianoforte. The sonatinas are included among his early attempts in this form.
Sonatina is a misleading title, by the way.
It was given them by the publisher, Diabelli, who oppeared to believe in the psychological value of titles, particularly when he could employ the diminutives.

THE B.B.C. ORCHESTRA
(Section E)
(Led by MARIE WILION )
Conducted by VICTOR HELY-HUTCHINSON
FRIEDRICH VON FLOTOW was born in J- Germany a year before Wagner, and died within a few days of him. He wrote a number of operas of which Martha and Stradella are the best known. Martha became famous all over the world, particularly so in England, where the impression that it was almost an English opera has stuck. Stradella, on the other hand, though it had great success in Germany, was a dead failure in London, and was never even produced in Paris. The overture, however, is very often played. Flotow was much in Paris, the early part of his artistic career was spent there, and later in life he returned and was elected a member of the Institute.
THE symphonic poems of Saint-Saens are amongst his most pleasing and popular works. All the four were written within a year or two of one another, after which he wrote no more of them, for opera occupied his thoughts for the rest of his life. His symphonic poems aro naturally based upon Liszt's, as are all symphonic poems written since Liszt's day. All such works vary very slightly in construction, and have, as a rule, an artistic resemblance to that type of story known as the conte. They are almost always based upon some literary model, and are as economical in their subject matter as a really good concise short story. The plot of Danse Macabre is of the simplest. The scene is a graveyard at night : the clock strikes and Death appears, knocks on the graves, and starts tuning his fiddle. In answer to his summons, several skeletons appear and dance wildly to Death's fiddling. Presently the cock crows, the dance ceases, and all disappear as day breaks.

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.
