AN OPERETTA, Fatinitza, by Suppe, was once put on at the Alhambra m Leicester Square, and another, Boccaccio, at the Comedy Theatre a year or two later. That was fifty and more years ago, long forgotten, and all we really know of a once very popular composer of operettas in Vienna is an overture or two, such as Poet and Peasant, Light Cavalry, and Morning, Noon and Night. Supp6 was for years conductor at the famous Theater an der Wien, and many of his very numerous operettas were produced there. It was at this theatre, too, that Johann Strauss had a great success with Die Fledermaus -and his other world-famous operettas. Supp6 must often have conducted them. (Scottish Regional Programme)

THE first really complete book upon ' The Dance' is Thoinot Arbeau 's Orchesographic, published in 1588. An English translation of this famous work was published a few years ago, and one can imagine that Peter Warlock , whose interest in ancient music was part of his scholarship, was attracted to the wealth of authentic information it contained. This suite Capriol would appear to have had its origin in the study of Arbeau, who describes in great detail all the dances which make up the separate movements of the suite.
A brief explanation of the most important of these dances may assist the listener to a better understanding of them. The title itself, Capriol, means a caper, and as a term in the dance means a leap into the air. It was said of the celebrated eighteenth-century dancer, Vestris the younger, that his leaps were so high and so prolonged that he descended to earth only out of consideration for the feelings of his less-talented colleagues. The Basse Danse and the Pavane are two of the oldest known dances ; both were danced in couples and were danced in a staid manner. The Basse'Danse is the older, and nourished round about the fifteenth century, the Pavane being at its height about the sixteenth century, From these two dances practically all other dances, up to the introduction of the waltz, originated. The Tordion probably came first of all from Italy, was much sprightlier than the others with which it was contemporary, and was more in the nature of a round dance. The Bransles, another name for which is Brawl, was, according to Arbeau, a 'new dance'. It was lively, and one of the forerunners of the country-dance. The remaining two are other dances of roughly the same period.
THE COMPOSER calls his work ' Farrago ', which the Pocket Oxford tells us means medley or hotch-potch-harsh words for what is really a sequence of four short movements, Prelude, Minuet, Rondino, and Rigadoon, joined together by association, but by no particular spirit of affinity one with another; in short, a suite in the orthodox tradition. It was composed in 1932, is scored for a moderate orchestra, is dedicated to D. B. Wyndham Lewis, and was performed for the first time, under Julian Clifford , in a studio broadcast, in April, 1933.
COMPLETED in 1918, and published in 1922, 'A Song before Sunrise' is inscribed by the composer ' For Philip Heseltine ', who was even better known to listeners under his composer's name, Peter Warlock. Scored for only wood-winds, two horns and strings, it begins with a fresh, happy melody given chiefly to the strings in nine parts, with little snatches of tune on the wood-winds breaking in on it. The music changes to a more flowing measure and sinks to very soft tone, and after a moment of sudden strength and energy returns to the opening melody.

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.
