: THE BBC NORTHERN IRELAND ORCHESTRA

Leader, Philip Whiteway
Conductor. Walton O'Donnell
Goldmark's ' Country Wedding' Symphony is really a symphonic suite in five movements, each having a descriptive title. The first and last movements are the most considerable of the set. Between them come a Bridal Song ', which is a formal little movement of a naive, folk-like character, a Serenade in the manner of an equally formal little scherzo, and the most impressionistic movement of the five, a slow movement entitled ' In the Garden', wherein Goldmark displays his charming talent for making effective use of the refinements of instrumental colour.

6—' Nelson Relics '
Cecil King
Down in the National Maritime Museum at Greenwich there is one of the most remarkable collections of seafaring relics in the world. It is this collection in general, and certain pieces belonging to Nelson in particular, that Cecil King , the distinguished maritime painter, will talk about this evening.
There are pictures of his in the Imperial War Museum, and also at the Musee de Marine in Paris. He has been marine painter to the Royal Thames Yacht Club . since 1932. He is a member of the Society for Nautical Research, and was responsible for the design of such historical ship models used by the Admiralty as those of Zecbrugge and the Armada.
Cecil King has already broadcast on flags, on which subject he is a specialist.

: DOHNANYI

Sonata in B flat minor. Op. 8, for violoncello and pianoforte
1 Allegro ma non troppo. 2 Scherzo. 3 Adagio non troppo. 4 Tema con variazioni played by Thelma Reiss (violoncello)
John Hunt (pianoforte)
Dohnanyi's chamber music, which follows the Brahms tradition, is distinguished by its fine craftsmanship and invention. The Cello Sonata in B flat minor, although an early work, is very characteristic of the composer's style. Without any attempt to exploit virtuosity for its own sake, the writing for the cello is both brilliant and effective.
The majestic and imposing first movement and the expressive slow movement show a certain affinity with Brahms. There is a lively scherzo which is particularly attractive. The last movement is interesting for the way in which the composer makes use of themes from the previous movements and weaves them into the texture of a theme and variations.

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.
