: THE BBC MIDLAND ORCHESTRA

Conducted by Reginald Burston
The story of Antar as musically illustrated by Rimsky-Korsakov in this symphonic poem, one of his early works, runs briefly as follows:
Antar, a somewhat Byronic figure.
'has retired to the desert, hating his fellows and disgusted with the world. He rescues a gazelle from the clutches of a monstrous bird. The gazelle turns out to be the Fairy Queen, Gul-Nazar, who, in gratitude, appears to Antar in a dream and promises him life's greatest joys.
In the second movement Antar, granted the Joy of Vengeance, proceeds to make use of it. The music is brassy and ferocious.
In the third movement Antar is experiencing the Joy of Power. The music is triumphant and brilliantly coloured, in the style of a march.
The fourth movement is taken up with the Joy of Love, to which Antar surrenders himself in the arms of Gul-Nazar herself. In the end he dies, intoxicated with love, in her embrace.
One or two of the tunes employed by the composer in the course of the work are genuine Arab melodies.

: A RECITAL

Elsie Suddaby (soprano)
Max Rostal (violin)
Nationality in music is an elusive quality, going far deeper than interest in folk music (which seems to be looked upon by some people as the only hall-mark of ' nationalism '). It is almost impossible to say just what it is that is so essentially French in the charming, delicate art of Francois Couperin. We only know that we recognise it again in the music of Debussy and Ravel two centuries later-and nowhere else.
The ' Concerts royaux ', published in 1722, mark Couperin's highest achievement in the field of instrumental ensemble music. In them, as Georges Migot says, he ' attained to the complete expression of his genius. He knew that music must consist of sonorities made to be heard and not read ... his material is beautiful, pliant, full, and iridescent.
It has been said that Porpora was the greatest singing master that ever lived. A contemporary of Handel's, he spent two or three years of his erratic career in London, directing an operatic enterprise in opposition to Handel's, in which he had the backing of a good part of influential London. None of his own operas, however, has survived, although he is supposed to have composed no fewer than thirty-three, as well as numerous oratorios, masses, and smaller vocal and instrumental pieces. It is in some of these last that his best qualities are displayed, and this melodious sonata is a good example of his style.

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.
