THE B.B.C. ORCHESTRA
(Section D)
Conducted by JOSEPH LEWIS
THE Stella Mary Dances were written in memory of the composer's daughter, who died on May 30, 1917, in her thirteenth year. For the passing of a young and beautiful life the gloom of funeral music seems unsuitable, and this wish to preserve a happier and more vivid remembrance of a vanished child-presence is expressed in these dances and in a short series of poems, ' Songs in memory of SteHa Mary Austin,' written by her father. It is not possible to quote the verses here in full, but the following lines show that their author contemplated some musical memorial to the daughter he had lost :
' Now would I keep her living,
Imprisoned in bars of tone.'
And again:
' You were music to my eyes !
And music to the lips!
Music, from your ribbon'd hair, To your dainty finger tips ! '
The composer is a younger brother of Frederic
Austin, the singer, composer, arranger of The Beggar's Opera and Polly, and artistic director to the British National Opera Company for a good part of its courageous life. Ernest was a business man until the age of thirty-three, when he abandoned his office in favour of composition. Without a regular academic training, he has evolved a style of his own, and his music covers a wide range, from symphonic works to slight pianoforte pieces. A good deal of his chamber music has been played in London, and ho made a real hit at a Promenade Concert some years ago with a set of orchestral Variations on The Vicar of Bray, a genial work which displays a merry sense of humour.

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.
