Sir John McEwen 's reputation as a composer has perhaps been somewhat eclipsed by his academic distinctions. We think of him too much as the Principal of the Royal Academy of Music, too little as the virile, individual composer he is, the greatest living Scottish musician and a musical ' nationalist' of the best type.
McEwen's so-called ' Little Sonata ' is the fourth of his violin sonatas, tt was written in 1913-14 and is, despite its name, by no means a miniature work. The title refers to the simplicity of its themes and their handling. But the Sonata is not at all simple to play !

Herald (1791-1833) held a foremost place in French opera during the best part of his life. Born in Paris he attended the Conservatoire, studying composition under Mehul. Harold began his career as a composer of symphonies and string quartets, but later devoted himself to opera and ballet and at odd moments turned out quantities of piano pieces of varying worth. The opera The Mule Driver was written in 1823 and the lively and colourful character of the music earned a success that greatly enhanced the composer's reputation. Herold's most popular opera, however, was Zampa, the overture to which is still a favourite in the repertoire of every military band and light orchestra. Quilter's incidental music to ' As You
Like It' was composed in 1922, and three of its four movements are introductions to different Acts: the first, 'Shepherd's Holiday', the second, 'Evening in the Forest', and the third, 'Merry Pranks'. The fourth is a dance which comes at the end of the play. One of Debussy's fellow students Rome tells us that as a young man, Debussy 'delighted in all that was refined, delicate, complicated, and strange.' What appealed to him most of all was the expression of intimate feelings. Human productions that were planned on a grand scale astonished him, without arousing either his admiration or his enthusiasm' The charming 'Petite suite,' originally written in 1886 for piano duet and later orchestrated by Busser, is, indeed intimate ' music, and characteristic of the composer's love of refinement and delicacy.
Tchaikovsky always considered The Sleeping Beauty, written in 1889, when he was at the height of his power, his best ballet. As a whole it has indeed proved the most popular, for Nut-cracker is better known by the delicious concert suite of numbers selected from it than as a stage-work. The 'Russian Waltz King' certainly never wrote a more haunting waltz than this in The Sleeping Beauty.

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.
