: PHYLLIS SCOTT (soprano)

and JOHN RORKE (baritone) in Mountain Ballads and Cowboy Songs
PhyUis Scott at the pianoforte
These ballads and cowboy songs are the true folk-songs of North America. The American has drawn his folk-music from various sources-from his negro slaves and their descendants, and from his own Anglo-Saxon ancestors (as in the Appalachians). The ever popular songs of Stephen Foster have long been adopted as quasi-folk songs. But the American cowboy song is nearest to the true folk song, originally composed by no one knows whom, handed on from singer to singer, and modified by each according to fancy.
It is even said that some of these songs have an origin as purely utilitarian as that of the hauling-shanties on the old sailing-ships. The sound of the human voice soothes restless cattle and the cowboys of the Far West found it easier to keep their great herds together on the open priairie at night if they sang as they made their rounds.

Mozart-Haydn Concert
Part I
At the beginning of the year 1791 Haydn paid the first of two visits to London. He was engaged to appear at Salomon's series of concerts held in the Hanover Square Rooms. Haydn was received with immense enthusiasm. Invitations to banquets and dinners were showered upon him, his portrait was painted three times, and the famous Dr. Burney dedicated a poem to him. Finally, Haydn was given an honorary degree- of Doctor of Music by the University of Oxford.
For this occasion Haydn went to
Oxford, where he attended three concerts at which three of his symphonies were performed. He took a new symphony with him, but owing to lack of time for adequate rehearsal the Symphony in G that had been written for Paris a couple of years previously was substituted .Hence it is now known as ' the ' Oxford ' Symphony. It is a work of great charm and finished craftsmanship, and is a worthy precursor of the composer's last great series of twelve symphonies writtern for Salomon (Soloist, ROY HENDERSON> )(Soio violin, ORREA PERNEL ) (Soloist, JOAN COXON> )
Mozart's opera, Figaro, had been produced in Prague and the whole city had gone mad about it... Mozart thereupon paid Prague a visit and received an overwhelming welcome. He gave two concerts during his stay, at one of which this symphony, already composed three years before, was played.

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.
