: LONDON MUSIC FESTIVAL. 1937

Organised by the British Broadcasting
Corporation from Queen's Hall, W.1
(Sole Lessees, Messrs. Chappell and Co., Ltd.)
First Concert
Dedicated to F. A. Stock, the well-known Chicago conductor, Busoni's
' Rondo arlecchinesco ', included -in this evening's programme, is best described in Busoni's own words-
In his brightly coloured costume A supple body
A spritely and sharp-witted spirit.
Harlequin's speech is universal. Now he affirms his principles boldly through the trumpet ; now he whistles to the world through the piccolo ; menaces with the basses, languishes with the 'cello, seeks distant places with the violins' celerity.
Rather as an accompanying illustration than as a programme, this series of pictures hovered before the composer: (1) The portrait of the hero in two profiles and one full face. (2) Harlequin's intuition and merry spirit (which the leanings towards a serenade set forth in the score). (3) His flight in consequence of an all-too-daring prank from which Harlequin escapes through his charm of manner and courage. (4) Harlequin, from his safe distance, lets the world hear his voice in calculated mockery.

: THE LESLIE BRIDGEWATER QUINTET

Two years after the death of Henry Purcell ' A Collection of Ayres, composed for the Theatre, and upon other occasions' was published by his widow, Frances Purcell. It consists of suites from the various plays, etc., for which Purcell composed music, arranged for string quartet. The pieces in this suite have been selected from this ' Collection ' and made into one representative of Purcell's theatre music in general.
Three of the pieces, the ' March ',
'Trumpet Ayre ',. and ' Jigg ' (the last omitted this evening), are from the music to The Married Beau, the ' Ayre ' from Distres'd Inocency; or, the Princess of Persia, the ' Dance of the Furies' from The Fairy Queen, and the ' Country Dance' from Dioclesian.

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.

Welcome to BBC Genome

Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in programmes, online etc.

This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers, images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
