Except for a few private lessons,
Gustav Albert Lortzing , who was born in Berlin in 1801, was entirely self-taught. The son of an actor, he was brought up in the atmosphere of a touring theatre company. While still a youth he himself acted and sang on the stage, and in 1822 he accompanied his parents to Cologne.
In the following year he married, and produced his first operetta soon afterwards. This was performed with considerable success at the theatres of Detmold, Münster, Osnabruck and Cologne, where the company of which he was a member regularly appeared. In 1833 he was engaged as first tenor at the Leipzig State Theatre, and there he spent ten successful years. In 1837 he wrote his famous comic opera, Tsar und Zimmermann, Act Two of which will be broadcast from the Berlin State Opera on December 7. After producing a number of other operas such as Undine, he fell on evil days and, with his large family, eked out an existence as a travelling actor. In
1850, however, he was appointed conductor at Friedrich-Wilhelmstadt
Theatre, which specialised in farces and vaudevilles. In the following year he died.

Leader, J. Mouland Begbie
Conductor, Guy Warrack
The Prelude to Mussorgsky's Khovanshchina, an opera which he began immediately after Boris, but never finished, is one of the loveliest tone-pictures in the whole range of Russian music. It depicts dawn in the famous Red Square, Moscow-the sleeping city, the quiet flow of the river. Presently the clang of bells ringing for matins is heard. The sunlight begins to glitter on the cupolas of the Kremlin .... This peaceful tone-picture is in striking contrast with the violence and turbulence of the drama it introduces.

Taylor Deems Taylor takes a prominent part in the musical life of New York, both as a composer and as a journalist. He has been, at different times, war correspondent, music critic, broadcast speaker, and editor. A graduate of New York University, he had little academic training in music and speaks of himself as a self-taught composer.

Eileen Joyce (pianoforte)
When* Glinka stayed in Madrid in 1845, he recorded in a note-book the folk melodies of singers and guitarists who were brought to his flat in the evenings. One of his chief sources was a muleteer, two of whose songs, seguidillas marchegas, he afterwards used in this orchestral piece.
' Night in Madrid ', originally called ' Recuerdos de Castilla ', is a brilliant pot-pourri on four Spanish melodies, written in 1848 for the Governor of Warsaw's private orchestra. In addition to the two seguidillas, Glinka used a jota tune and the well-known 'Punto Moruno'. Glinka was always a superb orchestrator and ' Night in Madrid ' is one of his most masterly scores.

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.
