: MEDVEDEFF'S BALALAIKA ORCHESTRA

with OLGA ALEXEEVA (soprano)
Sviatki
A Christmas Programme of Russian Music
The Sviatki period in all parts of Russia commences on Christmas Day, and continues until January 6, our Twelfth Night.
Medvedeff's programme is therefore assumed to start in the early hours of Christmas Morning. At the outset we shall have devotional music ; then a gradual movement towards the after-festivities, which at times become fast and furious. We shall hear Koljadkis (Carols), Pasnis (Songs of Joy), Pliaskis (Dances), and many traditional melodies, most of which will be performed in England for the first time. We shall also look in at one or two of the merry carnivals, and mingle with the crowd.

(Section C)
Elizabeth Maconchy , who is as yet only in her mid-twenties, is Irish by birth. She studied at the Royal College of Music, where she was a scholar, and later went abroad-to Prague and elsewhere-with a travelling scholarship. In 1930 her pianoforte Concerto was given by the Prague Philharmonic Orchestra, and in the same year her Suite, ' The Land ', was introduced by Sir Henry Wood at the Proms. Since then several of her works have been broadcast and played in London.
In 1933 her Oboe quintet won a ,prize in the Daily Telegraph Competition for Chamber music, and was subsequently broadcast.
This ' Comedy Overture ' was written as the prelude to a comic opera, but is also intended to be an individual concert piece. It opens with a march-like theme, which soon gives way to a vigorous figure in the violins; this is treated almost fugally, and in its turn leads to a gay little tune (introducing repeated notes) first heard on the trumpet. From these three themes, which are developed and used in combination, the overture is chiefly constructed, though a new and fairly extended tune of a genial and flowing character is introduced in the course of the work.

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.

This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers, images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
