: String Orchestral Concert

JOAN CROSS (Soprano)
LEON GOOSSENS (Oboe)
THE LONDON STRING PLAYERS
(Leader, JEAN POUGNET)
Conductor, HERBERT MENGES
THE Oboe was first introduced in the orchestra as long ago as 1671, but although it was occasionally used by later composers, it did not become a regular member of the orchestra until Wagner made it so. Perhaps that is why there is not a very extensive repertory of solo pieces for the oboe with accompaniment. There is this concerto of Handel's, but almost until recent times the only works of note are those by Mozart, who wrote an Oboe Concerto and introduced the instrument into a quartet. Both these works should by now be familiar to listeners who havo heard Loon Goossens play them, as ho does so brilliantly. In point of fact, this very brillianoo has inspired modern composers to write concertos expressly for Mr. Goossens. For example, there is the concerto by his brother, Eugene ; another by Armstrong Gibbs; and an Oboo Quintet by Arthur Bliss. which latter work was played only recently at the International Festival of Contemporary Music in Vienna. Leon Goossens made a special journey to Vienna to play in it.
HERBERT MENGES , one of our youngest
-U- conductors, first got his hand in as a director of an orchestra by conducting a body of amateur string players which he had brought together in Brighton. A number of distinguished concerts have now been given there under Menges, who has, since those early days. conducted his first Royal Philharmonic Society Concert, almost always a gateway to high musical adventure.

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.
