On hearing the first
Cuckoo in Spring Delius
THIS is one of the loveliest conceptions of Spring in all music, and, at the same time, one of the most beautiful of Delius' shorter pieces, the other being Stimmer Night on the River. It dates from 1912, and was first performed at a Philharmonic concert in January. 1014, under Mengelborg. It is only within the last few years that the work of Dolius has become reasonably well known in this country, and that it is so at all is due very largely to the unceasing devotion of Sir Thomas Beecham , for twenty years the unflagging champion of one whom he considers at least as great a composer as any among his contemporaries. So that it is not so true now as it was when Sydney Grew , the music critic, wrote it : 'In Germany, Delius is accepted as a master. Here in England opinion is divided, those who do not know his works dispuiing the judgments of those who do.'
That a man who has so often set Nature to music with such loving perfection should live in surroundings that consort with his musical vision is natural. Dolius does, in fact, live in such a place. The little village of Grez-sur-Loing, not far from Paris, was a favourite haunt of Robert Louis Stevenson , who has described it charmingly in his ' Essays of Travel.' Since his day it has changed hardly at all.

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.

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.
