Fantasy and Fugue on the Choral, Ad nos, ad salutarem undam
Liszt (1811-1886)
Introduzione ed Inferno, Canzona,
Fuga con Corale, Jesu, meine Freude (Jesus, my Joy)
Karg-Elert (1879-1933)
Sonata Eroica (In one movement)
Jongen (1873)
One of three Symphonic Chorals, each based on a hymn of which the tune provides the subject matter and the words the programme, this, the second, is built upon a choral familiar as the one used by Bach in one of the motets.
The first movement pictures a ' Vision in Inferno-anguish, torment, remorse, and sorrowful longing ', in the words of the composer. The melody of the choral is here heard only for a moment.
The second movement, Canzona, is on the verse ' My delight is in Thee '. Here the melody of the choral is elaborated in the curious and richly-ornamented style of the builders of the Middle Ages, in which they sought to express the glorification of Jesus through the most delicate arabesques and decorative work '.
In the third movement the choral is woven into the fabric of a fugue. The motive of ' the sou! which penetrates through the night of existence to the light of the only true knowledge ' leads us to the choral ' Jesu, Joy and Treasure ', and, following a splendid coda, the choral subject, ' Jesu, my Joy ', stands out in full majesty.
Joseph Jongen , a Belgian well known in this country during the years of the War, is mainly a composer of chamber music, though he has written a few organ pieces of a distinction fully equal to that of his pianoforte music. This work, ' Sonata Kroica is his biggest work for the organ, and was published as late as 1932. In form, it is in the orthodox three movements, but the whole is played through without a break. Jongen's harmonic scheme is of singular originality, and is well suited to the tone colour of the organ.

(Section C)
Led by LAURANCE TURNER
Conducted by JOSEPH LEWIS
HENRY WENDON (tenor)
Lucio Silla is an early opera of Mozart's, written in Milan in 1772. Mozart was then sixteen, with half a dozen operas already to his credit. Lucio Silla was naturally composed on the Italian model, and it pleased the people of Milan before whom it was performed more than twenty times in that season. The overture is a full length work written with any amount of spirit, but it has, of course, little chance in the repertory against the other overtures of Mozart's maturity.
Tchaikovsky prefaces his score of Mozartiana with the following note: ' A great number of most admirable little compositions of Mozart are, for reasons which appear to me incomprehensible, very little known hot only to the public but to the majority of musicians. My idea in arranging several of these numbers under the title of Mozartiana is to give a new impulse to the performance of these little master-pieces, which show incomparable beauty in every line and feature '.

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.
