: A Pianofore Recital

by CORTOT
(Daventry National Programme)

: THE WIRELESS MILITARY BAND

Conductor, B. WALTON O'DONNELL
OLIVE KAVANN (Contralto) in A Recital of Samuel Liddle 's Songs
Accompanied by THE COMPOSER
THE SICILIAN VESPERS made its first appearance in French, at the Paris Opera in 1855, two years after Il Trovatore, and La Traviata had appeared at Rome and Venice respectively. The libretto, by Scribe, deals with the massacre of the French invaders in Sicily while they were at vespers on Easter Monday. The tale is a thrilling one, if somewhat sanguinary, and the opera is full of Verdi's inimitable charm, so that it is a little difficult to understand why it has fallen into such neglect.
THERE can bo but few pianists, however modest their attainments, who have not played some at least of Grieg's many lyric pieces for the pianoforte. They must be at least as well known as Mendelssohn's Songs without Words were to our grand-parents, and they have certainly had a very large share in making Grieg's name the household word which it is.
Towards the end of last century it occurred to the great conductor, Anton Seidl , that some of them were admirably adapted for orchestral arrangement, as indeed they are; ho accordingly arranged four, scoring them effectively for a big orchestra. Grieg himself approved of the idea, though the actual orchestration struck him as a little too heavy for the light nature of the pieces, and he accordingly re-arranged the second, third and fourth numbers himself in a simpler way, and substituted the ' Shepherd Boy" for the first which Seidl had chosen. He scored It for strings and harp only.

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.
