ALEXANDER GLAZOUNOV differs from his Hussian contemporaries in many ways, although his career has been passed in active unity with the ' new Russian School ' founded by Balakirev, Borodin. Mussorgsky, and Rimsky-Korsakov. He is, for example, a symphonic composer, and has never been attracted to opera nor very much to songs. He lias, it is true, written ballets for the stage, but their main characteristics are of the instrumental type. He shows a preference, too, for classical forms, and is the one disciple of Brahms that the Russian School can boast. His work is chiefly remarkable for its harmonic brilliance and picturesque orchestration. Even Rimsky-Korsakov is not his superior in matters of orchestral colour. All Glazounov's later symphonies have been performed in this country, and of them, the sixth is the most popular, though the fourth runs it very close. It was first produced in England at a Royal Phil. harmonic concert in 1897 and has already been broadcast on several occasions. There are only three movements in place of the usual four, and no slow movement at all.

TAN PIETERSZOON SWEELINCK has been called the musical father of North Germany. A pupil of Uabrieli, he was influenced in his organ playing, as were organists all over Europe, by Frescobaldi, on whose principles and treatment of the organ, however, he impioved. He can, too, be shown to be the direct musical ancestor of Johann Sebastian Bach , in that his immediate successors, who were naturally influenced by Sweelinck, were the sources from which Bach drew his inspired treatment of the Choral.
Francois Roberday , a famous organist in Paris, was at one time court musician to QueenAnne of Austria and Queen Marie Thérèse. Lully was one of bis pupils.
Pierre du Mage was organist at the Collegiale de Saint-Quentin, 1703 to 1713, and in 1733 took part in the installation of the great organ at Notre Dame, Paris.

: 'More About Ann and Harold '

by LOUIS GOODRICH
LOUIS GOODRICH 'S episodic serial play continues with the pleasures and pains of a very nice modern young couple at a christening, Lord's and a nursing home. The young things are superhumanly, bright through all their ' breaks,' and their crisp dialogue leaves no time or attention for the cricket news while listening. Frederick Lloyd , who scored in last week's revival of ' To See Ourselves,' Ann Trevor , and Geoffrey Wincott are the chief names in an experienced radio cast.

: The Morgan Trio

FRANCES MORGAN (Violin) ; VIRGINIA MORGAN (Harp); MARGUERITE MORGAN
(Pianoforte)
MUSIC composed by Kings and Queens is not very great in volume, nor for that matter in merit, but it is not difficult to recall examples of musical wearers of tho purple... There was Nero, for a start, possibly King Alfred, and King Louis of France, who, one presumes, really wrote th is piece. Henry VIII actually did compose some songs, and they are not at all bad, while his daughter Elizabeth was a virginal player as well as a Queen of exceptional gifts. We, then, so far as England is concerned, have to take a leap to Frederick, Prince of Wales. who once condescended to play the 'cello to his distinguished and probably bored guest Haydn for a whole afternoon, and still another leap to Queen Victoria, who really was fond of music and whose execution was, on the authority of Mendelssohn, pretty good. But Frederick the Great, flautist, prolific composer of concertos for the flute, and friend and genuine admirer of Bach is, of course, the star among royal musicians.

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.
