: Serenade

THE B.B.C. STRING ORCHESTRA
Conducted by VICTOR HELY-HUTCHINSON
THE name of this Suite is very nearly a literal translation into German of the French
' Serenade.' The latter meant originally a piece of evening music, while this is ' A little Night Music.' Composed, so far as we know, for some specially happy occasion shortly after the tremendous success which Figaro achieved in Prague, the Suite, like a string quartet, is in the usual four movements. The first, a brisk Allegro, is in the traditional form, with the two main themes which form the basis of a development section and which are repeated in the last part of the movement. Next comes a slow movement, very much in the usual song-like mould. The principal melody begins at the outset with the same note repeated three times. The third movement is a quite simple Minuet, and the Suite comes to an end with a cheerful Rondo. The principal theme, leaping up the common chord and then repeating a note four times over, has a real suggestion of mischief in it, and in other ways, too, the movement is full of the brightest good spirits.

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.
