A Comic Opera in a Pastoral Setting
Written in 1768 by Isaac Bickerstaff with music by Charles Dibdin
Adapted for broadcasting by Ursula Branston
Music arranged by Alfred Reynolds
Dramatis Persona Diana Colleen Clifford
Orchestra led by Victor Olof and conducted by Jack Clarke
Production by William MacLurg
Isaac 'Bickerstaff's pastoral comic opera, Lionel and Clarissa, was written in 1768 and produced at Covent Garden the same year with music by Charles Dibdin. Lionel and Clarissa is a typical late eighteenth-century piece. It obviously belongs to the world of She Stoops to Conquer and the comedies of Sheridan, and the characters-the earnest tutor who falls in love with the gentle heroine while teaching her astronomy, Colonel Oldboy, the sporting squire, and his foppish son-are all conceived in the convention of the period.
In adapting the piece for broadcasting, Ursula Branston has worked from the text used in Nigel Playfair 's production at the Lyric Theatre, Hammersmith, in 1925. Alfred Reynolds 's arrangement of Dibdin's music, made for that production, will also be used.

Johann Friedrich Fasch (1688-1758) was born near Weimar and became a scholar of the Thomasschule in Leipzig, where he studied under Kuhnau. He founded, a Collegium musicum which eventually led the way to the establishment of the famous Gewandhaus concerts. In
1722 Fasch was appointed Court Kapellmeister at Zerbst, and later was invited to compete for the post of Cantor at the Thomasschule against Bach, but he refused to do so. Bach appears to have held a high opinion of Fasch's music. Not only did he study a number of Fasch's church cantatas, but he actually copied out five of the composer's orchestral suites. Apart from religious music, Fasch wrote various orchestral and chamber works.
Faure had great power of lyrical expression. His music abounds with beautiful and finely drawn melodies. A consummate craftsman and a harmonist of considerable range and subtlety, everything he wrote was polished to the utmost degree and designed with an unerring sense of balance and clarity of style. Above all, he was a miniaturist of genius and his songs and piano pieces rank among the finest of modern times.
