THESE symphonic impressions of Falla are
made up of three Nocturnes. They were first introduced into this country in 1921, the composer himself playing the piano part. and though this was not his first visit to the country it marked the first occasion on which the genius of Falla made itself known. The composer insists that this work is neither a concerto nor is it programme music; the title alone should convey what he intended. His idea was to evoke the memory of places, sensations and sentiment, and the music is not descriptive, but merely expressive. The sounds of festival and dance run through these Nights, but melancholy and mystery have their part in the scheme also.
STRAUSS'S Don Juan is not that of Mozart, but an altogether more passionate and sombre figure. Strauss took his inspiration from the poem by Lenau. The programme of the poem, however, follows the accepted story fairly closely. We have Zerlina, Donna Anna , and others of Don Juan 's victims, as well as the Commendatore (the Stone-Guest), and Juan's death at his hands.
This is one of the earliest of Strauss's symphonic poems. When he wrote it he was a young man in his thirties, and in its verve and passion it has never been surpassed by anything written by Strauss later .

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.
