Part I (Soloist, JOAN CROSS> )
When Schubert died his Unfinished Symphony, which had never been performed during his lifetime, lay hidden somewhere in the town of Gratz, of whose Musical Society Schubert was a member. It was for this Society that he is supposed to have composed the B minor Symphony.
Ultimately, after years of search, the manuscript of the Unfinished Symphony was found.
Why it remained ' unfinished,' or whether, indeed, the composer's ultimate intention was ever to finish it at all, can never be known. We do know, however, that it was the work of a new Schubert, a genius for the first time probing the remoter depths of a mature imagination. When we reflect that it was followed not only by the Symphony in C, which we know and glory in, but by another that a century of search has failed to trace, we can only make a guess as to what further beauties we may have lost. (Solo pianoforte,HARRIET COHEN )
These' Variations were composed specially for Harriet Cohen , who is playing them this evening, and it was she who brought them out at a ' Prom ' in 1920. The Variations, though based on the theme which can be heard in one form or another throughout, are treated with much freedom and each has a definite mood of its own. The first, ' Nocturne', is for the most part dreamy and quiet. It leads quite suddenly to No. 2, ' 'Strife', violent and dramatic as its title suggests. No. 3 is called ' The Temple.' Variation 4, ' Play,' forms a striking contrast with the third, and an Intermezzo, ' Enchantment ', that follows, is again in a very different atmosphere. The fifth and last variation is called 'Triumph'. Towards the end the whole orchestra gives us the original theme once more, and the piece comes to a jubilant close.
Stravinsky's Firebird, a ballet based on an old Russian legend, was the first he composed for Diaghilev. It was first given in 1010. The music of the suite represents the following scenes : (1) Kastchei's enchanted garden. Prince Ivan catches the Bird of Fire ; (2) The Bird purchases release from Ivan for the price of one of her jewelled feathers ; (3) The thirteen princesses held captive by the magician play in the moonlight; (4) As they dance, the Prince sees them and falls in love with the fairest ; (5) The Prince, overpowered by Kastchei and his host of strange creatures, calls the Fire Bird to his aid by means of the jewelled feather. The Bird appears and shows the Prince how the magician may be destroyed.

: Prose Reading

Cricketing Days : t: 'The Cricketer's Exit: a Last Innings,' by H. R. HEADLAM
2. ' Cobden's Over ', by Lyttelton
Read by ERic GILLETT
Brigadier H. R. Headlam 's delightful little essay, 'The Cricketer's Exit', first appeared in The Times, where it attracted the attention of Sir James Barrie and drew from him an equally charming reply beginning: ' Dear Brigadier, — Though I don't know you, I wish I did, and that is the' only excuse I can offer for my presumption in begging you to dine with me at any time or place that is seemly to you..... Today's confession in The Times about your last cricket exploit makes me long to see you sitting opposite me at a table for two.....'
The other passage is the description by Robert Henry Lyttelton --of the Lytteltons of cricket and Eton-of surely the greatest over that was ever bowled.

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.
