Overture, The merry Wives of Windsor Nicolai
BY no means the only opera based on Shakespeare's story of Falstaff, Nicolai's has long been one of the most popular, both here and on the Continent. He was an industrious composer, and left a good deal of original music, most of which is now almost forgotten.
The Overture is made up of tunes from the last act of the opera, in which Falstaff and the others join in a fancy-dross frolic, designed by the two ' Merry Wives ' and their friends for the fat Knight's discomfiture. A flowing tune on the violoncellos begins the Overture ; in the opera this is the moon rising over the Forest of Windsor, and the bustling merriment of the other tunes tells of the revels held there at night.
UNLIKE the dance tunes of the present day, many of those of a former generation can still be played and enjoyed simply as music, without much thought of the dances for which they were written. The Waltzes of Johann Strauss aro among the best examples of such music, and there are many others scarcely less worthy. Joseph Gung 'l, at one time school-master, then a soldier, and latterly a famous bandmaster and composer of marches and danco tunes, left some three hundred pieces, almost all full of delightful tunes and vigorous rhythm, many of which still figure from time to time in light and popular programmes. The family tradition was carried on, as it was in the Strauss family ; his nephew Johann also composed many popular dance tunes, and, like his uncle, made many successful tours in Europe with them.

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.
