Leader, Alfred Barker
Conductor, T. H. MORRISON
John Foulds is a Manchester man, and at one time played the 'cello in the Halle Orchestra. In London he has had an extensive experience as a conductor and as an organiser of concerts. He has written a large number of compositions ; songs, piano pieces, chamber music and orchestral works. One of his most ambitious works is 'A World's Requiem ', which was specially composed in remembrance of the War. It is also interesting to note that he was one of the early experimenters in the use of a quarter-tone system, and in this respect anticipated the inventions of several Central European composers.
John Foulds is best known to listeners by his very popular ' Keltic Lament', with its beautiful but poignant Irish melody, the second of the three pieces forming the suite to be played this morning.

The All Blacks, 1935 by A. J. HARROP
The All Blacks open their 1935-36 campaign at Devonport on September 14, and followers of the Rugby game are eagerly awating the opportunity to see whether this team is likely to rival the record of the famous side of eleven years ago. Meanwhile, Dr. Harrop, a New Zealand journalist who travelled with the last side and watched the Trial games for the selection of this team, will give listeners an idea of the prospects, and tell them how far the criticisms that have already been made in New Zealand are justified.

Part I
Mendelssohn's overture, 'A Midsummer Night's Dream ', which forms a part of the incidental music to Shakespeare's play, stands out as perhaps the most astonishingly mature work ever penned by a boy of seventeen. One might go even further and say that it is one of the most astonishing pieces of music ever penned by any composer, for no one has yet equalled Mendelssohn's genius for securing what we imagine to be the atmosphere of fairyland.
Despite the fact that ' En Saga ' is fairly sombre and gloomy in atmosphere, it is one of the most popular of the composer's tone poems. It was the first work to bring renown to Sibelius outside his own country, and this was due to Busoni, who introduced it to the German public during the 'nineties. Cecil Gray has well pointed out that ' one of the chief attractions of ' En Saga ' is the quite exceptional wealth of melodic invention that it reveals, at least three of the leading themes being of such outstanding beauty and distinction that any one of them alone would in itself be enough to make the fortune of a work '.
Bach's Toccata and Fugue in D minor for organ was written at Weimar before the composer had reached the age of thirty. It is one of Bach's most brilliant organ works, of the utmost technical difficulty, particularly in the Fugue. Its transference to the orchestra by Paul Klenovskv-now known to be Sir Henry Wood-is in many ways even more effective. It is scored with imagination and skill and with keen understanding of the expressive needs of the music. The impressive effect of the last climax is thrilling in the extreme. It might be pointed out that it is one of the most popular pieces in the repertoire of the Philadelphia Orchestra.

(Section C)
Led by LAURANCE TURNER
Conducted by WARWICK BRAITHWAITE
Ernesto Halffter , born in 1905, is one of the leading younger Spanish composers. His Sinfonietta, although decidedly modern in harmony and orchestration, melodically and formally reverts to the style of the old Sinfonia concertante of Haydn's day. Composed in 1924, it won the first prize in the National Competition of 1925, but was revised afterwards by de Falla, under whom Halffter studied. In 1927 the Sinfonietta was performed by the Madrid Symphony Orchestra, and was then heard in several musical centres in Europe and America. The first performance in England was given by the BBC Chamber Orchestra at the ninth annual Festival of the International Society for Contemporary Music.

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.
