DEBUSSY'S PIANOFORTE MUSIC
Played by LAFFITTE
Reverie
Images (2nd Series)
Cloches a travers les feuilles; Et la lune descend sur le temple qui fut
Poissons d'Or THE second act of Images contains three
- of the most popular of Debussy's pianoforte works. Although they have titles which suggest vaguely a programme, as is always the case with Debussy's works, the impression is always the main thing. In
. the first, one naturally seeks to hear the sound of bells, and here Debussy reproduces them with a delightful effect. The pianoforte lends itself to such sound-painting, and as Debussy was fond of introducing bell-like effects into his pieces, he does so often and with astonishing variety.
The next piece is nothing but a simple impression of moonlight on the site of a ruined temple, while the third, Goldfish, speaks for itself. It is only necessary to picture a stone fountain in a green garden with the sunshine on the water and the little fish darting here and there.

: ' THE GROWTH OF THE MODERN WORLD ORDER '— II

' The Rise of Great Britain' (continued)
Mr. J. L. HAMMOND
THE present economic world order may be called ' British' with some justice, in that it came into existence as a direct result of Great Britain's rise to power. The continued existence of the one has depended upon the continued existence of the other. To understand the why and how of world conditions today, therefore, it is first essential to know something of that unique set of circumstances, geographical, geological, climatic and political, which favoured Great Britain in the economic struggle of the nations. In this talk Mr. Hammond brings his historicafsurvey up to the end of the eighteenth century. By that time, Great Britain was well ahead of her rivals.

: THE B.B.C. ORCHESTRA

(Section E)
(Led by LAURANCE TURNER )
Conducted by VICTOR HELY-HUTCHINSON
(Solo Violin, ARTHUR CATTERALL )
THIS serenade is known as the ' Haffner.' It was composed for the wedding festivities of Elisabeth Haffner , daughter of the Burgomaster of Salzburg, Mozart's native town. This was in 1776, when Mozart was twenty years old and probably without much experience of weddings, for his own was not to be for another six years. At any rate, there is so much music in the Serenade, and the work would have taken so long to perform in the circumstances, that it was probably intended to be split up and the several sections played separately at various times during the festivities. However, Mozart seems to have taken an interest in the composing of the. Serenade, and it was doubtless a labour of love, for Siegmund Haffner had the reputation of being a good popular and patriotic Burgomaster, and Mozart had an intense affection for his native town. The Haffner wedding music also includes a short March, not included in the Serenade, but intended for performance at some point in the ceremony.
But the music written in connection with Burgomaster Haffner does not end with these works. In 1782, six years later, Mozart wrote the well-known Haffner Symphony, No. 35 in D. It was composed also for a wedding, this time for a younger daughter of the Burgomaster. Mozart was in Vienna at the time, and it was his father who made the suggestion to him that he should compose something for the festivities as he had done on the former occasion. A month later he was himself married to Constance Weber. There is no record, however, that he wrote any music for his own wedding.

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.
