IN this programme are items which together illustrate in rough outline the changes which the London musical stage has experienced in the thirty odd years of this century. The Arcadians represents an era that is past. It was almost the last of the naive, dainty, unsophisticated musical comedies invented and stereotyped by George Edwardes in the eighteen-nineties of which The Geisha was perhaps the most typical. Then a ruthless invasion hy Viennese composers, followed by a still more devastating conquest by American jazz-kings, swept the pretty-pretty from the stage, and for years we settled down to a sequence of a new kind of three R's—Ruritania, Revue, and Racket—with occasional lapses into a sentimental relief of which The Rebel Maid and Lilac Time were typical examples. And now there are signs that we are turning on our tracks and completing the circle, or rather the ellipse, for we are going hack farther than seemed possible a few years ago. Tantivy Towers, delightful as it is, is not a new form nor even a personally remembered one. It is a type that dates from Halevy, and Offenbach, perhaps from Scribe and Auber, or even more remotely from Gay and Pepusch. Could any possible development be more promising?

: A Recital

by OLGA HALEY (Mezzo) and Mrs. KORMAN O'NEILL (Pianoforte)
CHOPIN did not furnish this Barcarolle with a a programme, but others have thought it seemed to call for one. This is the conception of Carl Tausig , Liszt's celebrated pupil: Two lovers in tho discreetly-curtained cab of a gondola are talking of their love. Their communion is expressed in the thirds and sixths of the melody, a figure representing the affinity of two inseparable souls that is maintained throughout. At ono point they embrace and kiss, or so Tausig surmises. He puts forward the modulation into C Sharp Minor as indisputable evidence of the fact. Otherwise, the piece is in the customary form of a barcarolle, with the rocking motive in the accompanying bass and the melody built upon it, which in this case in interpreted as a tender dialogue.
Another opinion is that of James Huneker , the American critic, who felt that this Barcarolle should seldom be played in public, and never to the public of a large hall. ' Something,' he says, ' of Chopin's delicate, tender warmth and spiritual voice is lost in larger space.' Mrs. O'Neill, who is about to play it, agrees that it is not a 'show piece,' but it is, in her opinion, the most beautiful romantic piece, with the possible exception of the F Minor Ballade, Chopin ever wrote.

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.
