(Section D)
(Led by LAURANCE TURNER )
Conducted by VICTOR HELY-HUTCHINSON
For some years Schumann had been trying to get German composers to interest themselves in national opera and thus carry on the work of Weber. At last he decided to do something himself, and towards the end of 1847 Schumann completed the libretto of Oenoveva, which was based on the legend of St. Genovieve. About six months afterwards he finished the music, but it was not until June, 1850, that this opera was produced at the Leipzig Opera House. However, it met with very poor success. It must be admitted that the weaknesses of the opera are manifold, but the overture is one of the composer's most interesting and dramatic orchestral works.
Isidore de Lara was born in London in 1858, and at thirteen years of age made his first public appearance as a pianist. Two years later he went to Milan and studied composition and singing. During the years 1915-16 he gave a number of chamber music concerts in London, the programmes being devoted to British composers. Messaline was composed in 1899. Borodin did not write a great deal of orchestral music, but what he did is of first-rate quality. ' In the Steppes of Central Asia ' is a perfect symphonic poem in miniature, the music of which sets out to describe the journey of a caravan, escorted by Russian soldiers, over the desert. There are three themes : the first represents the rhythmical tread of the camels, the second is a Russian folk song, and the third is an Oriental melody, which are treated with great skill and picturesque effect.
One of the masterpieces of light orchestral music is the popular ' Nutcracker ' Suite : each number is a model of finished workmanship and delicate orchestral effect. It was first performed at a symphony concert in St. Petersburg in 1892, and the audience were so delighted with the music that they demanded five of the movements to be repeated.

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.
