: THE BBC SCOTTISH ORCHESTRA

Leader, J. Mouland Begl
Conductor, Guy Warrack
In 1916 the Japanese dancer, Michio Ito , produced a ballet at the London Coliseum, and Hoist wrote a number of short dance pieces specially for it. Ito furnished the composer with real Japanese themes, and all the pieces, except the third, are founded on these. The third has melodies of Holst's own invention.
The several movements are: The
Prelude: The Song of the Fisherman', a rather sad and wistful meledy, with the harp prominent in the accompaniment. 1. ' Ceremonial Dance', brilliant and in festive mood, with the drums and bells taking a considerable part in its brightness. 2. ' Dance of the Marionettes ', the movement which has no Japanese theme as the basis ; it is built upon a sort of jumpy rhythm with three quick notes to each of the two beats in the bar. Interlude, quite short and slow, makes use of the same theme as the first number, ' The Song of the Fisherman '. 3.
' Dance under the Cherry Tree'. A tune on the flute begins this delicate, graceful movement. 4. Finale: ' Dance of the Wolves'. This works up appropriately to a stirring and excited mood; attentive listeners will notice how the gong and the xylophone are cunningly used to heighten the effect.

: London Pageant Bax

Tonight, after a most successful season at which the standard of performance' has maintained an extremely high level, the Proms come to an end, to give way to a winter season of public and studio concerts that promise to the music lover numerous good things in the form of well-known works and novelties. The chief characteristic of the programme this evening is the range and diversity of the items. There is something here for every taste-from those who like only what they know to those who take a serious interest in the latest musical developments. Of special interest will be the opportunity to hear again William Walton 's fine Sinfonia Concertante, and the first concert performance of Arnold Bax's 'London Pageant' will be no less welcome.
It is interesting to note that the city of London as a subject for tone poems is popular with some of our leading composers at the present time. In addition to this new work of Arnold Bax , the BBC announces in one of its symphony concerts a performance of John Ireland's ' A London Overture ', and the first per- formance in London of William Walton 's 'In Honour of the City of London'.
Tickets can be obtained from [address removed], and usual agents. Prices (including Entertainments Tax) : Is. 6d., 6s., 5s. (reserved), 3s. (unreserved), promenade (payment at doors only), 2s.

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.
