Postlude in C (1813-1879) Mr. Trevor's interesting ' early Italian group consists of pieces by composers, all of whom are probably unknown to the average listener, perhaps even to many professional musicians. Adriano Ban chieri and Claudio Merulo were both organists of St. Mark's, Venice, and the latter enjoyed a European reputation as a virtuoso. Pupils came even from North Germany to study with him. Merulo composed numerous motets and madrigals, as well as organ music, and (like his English contemporary Byrd) dabbled in the business of music-publishing.
Giovanni Battista Bassani was a Paduan who settled at Ferrara, where he was the cathedral organist. He is said to have been one of Corelli's teachers. '
We know very little of Giulio Cesare
Arresti, beyond the fact that he spent practically the whole of his life in his native city of Bologna.

Overture, The Wasps Vaughan Williams Aristophanes' play, The Wasps, turns on a quarrel between a father and son, and the Wasps of the title form the chorus. The name suggests the sting in the comments that they make on the action, after the traditional manner of a Greek chorus. In Vaughan Williams 's music, written specially for a production of the play at Cambridge in 1909, their buzzing is vividly suggested.
Most of the melodies are old Greek modal tunes, which the characters sing in the course of the play, and the last ones are taken from a point near the end where the father and son become reconciled. (Soloist, THELMA BRYAN> )
This is the famous ' Coronation Concerto ', so called because Mozart played it for the first time at Frankfurt on October 15, 1790, in the course of the festivities following the coronation of the Emperor Leopold II. According to the title-page of the old Andre edition, Mozart also played the F major Concerto (K. 459) on the same occasion. Both works had been composed years earlier, however, the F major in 1784, the D major in 1788.

: 'In the Shadow'

A play for Broadcasting by HORTON GIDDY
The main action of the play takes place on board a British Destroyer which is lying at anchor in a tropical bay where, except for native fishing craft, the only other vessel is a foreign cruiser. It is an hour before sunset when the play opens.
The Voices heard are
Also Newsboys, Restaurant Customers, Street Criers., Travellers by Train, etc., etc.
The production by PETER CRESWELL
This short play by Horton Giddy , which was first broadcast last January, deals with an entirely imaginary situation-the presentation by Britain of an ultimatum to a foreign Power-as that situation affects one remote corner of the world. The scene is set on board a British destroyer, and the author knows the life of the Navy and the types with whom he deals.
In the Shadow is not designed as propaganda for any cause. It is simply a ' thriller -rather different from the ordinary thriller, of course-that sets out to make listeners hold their breath up to the last tense moment.
This play will be repeated in the Regional programme tomorrow night at 9,15

When Sir Nigel Playfair staged Sheridan's The Duenna at the Lyric, Hammersmith, he commissioned his musical director, Alfred Reynolds , to rewrite the original music by Thomas Lin !ey, which had been described as ' Handel and water '. Reynolds became enthusiastic writes Sir Nigel, ' and by the time he had finished there was really a good deal more Reynolds than Linley in the composition
Debussy's second wife bore him a little daughter, nicknamed ' Chouchou ', and the happily domesticated composer dedicated ' Children's Corner ' ' to my dear little Chouchou, with her father's affectionate apologies for what follows '. Naturally, the pieces are intended to be played to a child, not by a child.

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.
