British History-6
' Merchants and Monks'
RHODA POWER
' Merchants and Monks '. At first glance the linking of the two words seems incongruous. But this afternoon's broadcast will justify the connection by showing how the monks in England once played an active and important part in commerce. The Cistercians, for instance, used to sell wool in Flanders and Italy, two countries that had great cloth industries. Much of the farming work was carried out by lay brothers-men who were recruited from the peasantry.

Evlyn Howard-Jones is one of the foremost British interpreters of Beethoven and Brahms. He began his musical life at the age of twelve as a deputy church organist. He then entered the Royal College of Music and won several scholarships, and after a few years went to Germany to finish his musical education under Eugene d'Albert. Mr. Howard-Jones is equally well known as a fine pianist in Berlin, Vienna, Paris, Holland, Scandinavia, America and Canada.
' Death and Transfiguration ' is one of the earliest of Strauss's symphonic poems. It was completed in 1889 when the composer was only twenty-five. Orginally the score was prefaced by a poem of Alexander Rittcr , which was, ' however, written after Strauss's music, and therefore may be considered as a kind of commentary on the music.
' Death and Transfiguration' is
divided into four sections : (i) the sick man lies in his bed and dreams of ' childhood's golden day ' ; (2) then comes a fierce, delirious fight with Death. Once again there follows stillness ; (3) the dying man reviews all his past life. At length there comes
, a briefer, fiercer struggle, in which * Death strikes its final blow; (4) the stillness of death is succeeded by the Transfiguration.

Arnold Bax 's ' Three Orchestral Pieces ' were composed in the summer of 1027 and first performed at a Promenade Concert in 1929. The music of these Three Pieces, like most of Bax's music, is unassociated with any literary programme. To all intents and purposes the Three Pieces might have been called a Symphony much in the same way as Schumann's Overture, Scherzo and Finale.
(Solo violin, ADOLF BUSCH ; solo viola,
LIONEL TERTIS)
In the eighteenth century orchestral works which contained a prominent solo part for one or more instruments were called ' Concertantes '. The concertante was therefore a kind of forerunner of the modern concerto. Mozart's very beautiful example of this form is said to have been written in 1780. It is scored for solo violin and viola and an orchestra consisting of two oboes, two horns, and strings. There is not very much independence in the solo parts : when the violin and viola unite they play for the most part in thirds and sixths.

: Symphony Concert, Part 2

Like most of the great symphonic composers, Sibelius did not turn his attention to the symphony until he had attained complete mastery of the technique of composition. Cecil Gray rightly points out in his analysis ot Sibelius's First Symphony that it ' is the last of an old line rather than the first of a new. In this respect it is symbolically significant that it should have been written in the last year of the nineteenth century. Although it is true to say that no one else could have written it, the work reveals distinct affinities, both formal and colouristic, with what one may call the romantic symphonies of various predecessors and contemporaries from Dvorak to Elgar.'

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.
