(Section D)
Led by Laurance Turner
Conductor, ADRIAN BouLT
Of the eight numbers forming Elgar's Nursery Suite ' No. 1 ' Aubade ' (Awake) is structurally the most important, for it is the longest and most highly developed. The first section flows with a gentle lilt and in the second section there is a quotation from a hymn tune ' Hear thy children, gentle Jesus ' that was written by the composer in his youth. No. 2 ' The Serious Doll' is as economically written and as spare of notes as the music of the modern French school at its best. The chief melody, wistful yet tinged with humour, is given to the flute and is supported by a delicate string accompaniment. No. 3 ' Busy-ness ' is a brilliant piece of orchestral virtuosity and the title fits the music Perfectly. No. 4 ' The Sad Doll ' has the character of a slow waltz and contains some lovely string writing. It is perhaps the most original of all the numbers.
No. 5 The Wagon Passes' is imbued with the phantasy and mystery associated with the nursery tale told at dusk. No. 6 ' The Merry Doll' moves along at a rapid pace and the sudden accentuations and sprightly melodic leaps suggest the activities of Punch. For sonority and poetic feeling No. 7 ' Dreaming ' takes first Place in the suite. Richly scored for muted strings it expresses a mood of sadness and regret. This leads without a break into No. 8 ' Envoy ' which, however, is not being played on this occasion. It opens with an elaborate cadenza for solo violin. No fresh material is introduced, but instead both soloist and orchestra comment upon what has gone before, finally rounding off the whole work with a longish reference to the first number.

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.
