Glazunov's symphonic poem ' Stenka Razin ' takes its name from the hero of the story which the music illustrates. He was a fierce marauder. With his cruel horde he terrorised over a wide area of the Volga, where his own ship sailed in more than regal splendour. The sails were silk, the oars of gold, and in a pavilion on the deck there rested, surrounded by every mark of opulence, the Princess Persane, Stenka's captive and mistress. One day she told his comrades of a dream, in which Stenka had been shot and all his band put to death, while she herself perished in the waves of the Volga. Her dream came true. Stenka was surrounded by the soldiers of the Tsar, and death or surrender were the only alternatives. Calling his men round him, he said to them
' Never, through all the thirty years of my career, have I offered a gift to the Volga. Today I give it what is for me the most precious of all the treasures of the earth ', and with these words he hurled the princess into the stream. His warriors raised a song in his glory and then all flung themselves upon the ring of bayonets.

ORCHESTRA
Suite, Gli uccelli (The Birds) arr. Respighi
1 Prelude (after Pasquini, 1637-1710). 2 La colomba (The Dove) (after Jaques de Gallot, 1670). 3 La gallina (The Hen) (after Rameau, 1683-1768). 4 L'usignuolo (The Nightingale) (after an anonymous English composer, 16..). 5 II cuco (The Cuckoo) (after Pasquini, 1637-1710)
The plan of Respighi's suite ' The Birds ' is as follows: No. I is a short prelude by Pasquini framing a little shop-window display of the other numbers in the suite ; No. 2 paints an expressive little picture of a dovecot in the middle distance-the cooing of the doves on flutes and clarinets is unmistakable ; No. 3 is Rameau's famous imitation of the hen who has clearly laid an egg and is very cock-a-hoop about it ; in No. 4 an ' anonymous English ' nightingale sings very sweetly ; and No. 5 is Pasquini's cuckoo, also famous, in which the insistent bird sings longer than any of the others. All this pretty chirping is brought to an end with a repetition of Pasquini's prelude.

: ' EFFICIENCY AND LIBERTY'

'Italy'
Sir Charles Petrie
In the opening talk last week Wilson Harris surveyed the general scope of the problem under discussion in this series — how far the different European countries today combine efficiency as a nation with the liberty of the individual citizen.
Tonight Sir Charles Petrie will examine Italy and the Italian system of government from this particular point of view. Sir Charles Petrie , who is the author of several books on historical and political themes, has made a sympathetic study of Fascism ; in 1931 he published a work on Mussolini. After he has spoken there will be a short discussion between him and Wilson Harris , who is taking part as interlocutor in all the talks in this series.

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.
