Johan Severin Svendsen, the Scandinavian composer who figures in the programmes of orchestral concerts mainly with his Norwegian Rhapsodies, of which he wrote four, the brilliant Carnival in Paris, and his Romance, beloved of violinists, was born in 1840 and died in 1911. Like Sullivan and many another composer, he was the son of a military bandmaster, and found in his association with his father's activities an excellent and very thorough apprenticeship which in the same way made Sullivan a well-equipped musician at an age when the average boy knows no more of music than what he is made to learn at school. At fifteen Svendsen already played several instruments with considerable skill, and he was, in his turn, an army bandmaster before he was twenty. He left the army at twenty-one, and for the rest of his life held many distinguished posts in Germany and Scandinavia, both as conductor and teacher. He was in England in 1888 conducting one of his Symphonies at a Philharmonic Concert. Actually he did not write a great deal, but all his music has a definitely individual character, high technical finish, and an engaging brilliance.
The songs of Richard Strauss have passed into the very limited catalogue from which the artists draw who specialize in what the Germans call Lieder, and in the programmes of these singers Strauss's songs rank with those of Schubert, Brahms, Wolf, and a few others. Naturally all his songs are not of the same superb standard, but such songs as 'Morgen,' 'Cacilie' and 'Allerseelen' rank with the finest in the literature of songs. He takes his texts mostly from modern German poets and exercises great thought in the selection of those he chooses to set. In the case of a few of them he transcribes his accompaniments for orchestra, thus imparting to them an added colour in the handling of which he is so supreme a master.

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.
