(Led by MARIE WILSON )
Conducted by EDWARD CLARK
ETHEL BARTLETT and RAE ROBERTSON
(Two Pianofortes)
Rimsky-Korsakov was a keen and one of the earliest collectors of the folk music of his country -and the peasant songs and <lancea of Russia are amongst the loveliest in the world. He published a collection in 1877, and used material from it. in almost everything he thereafter wrote. A number of Russian fotk-tunes are contained in this Simphoniotta, which was, by the way, originally conceived as a string quartet. In its present form it has throe movements against the four of the quartet; they are (1) In the Fields ; (2) At the Charivari; (3) In the Khorovod. The first movement is based on a folk tune from Smolensk, a simple melody, one of those curiously haunting tunes, which by constant reiteration become saturated with a profound melancholy. Charivari, in the French sense, describes a kind of discordant serenade played before the house of a victim to denote displeasure with him, a displeasure measured by the intensity of its din. Rimsky-Korsakov's is, from this point of view, a very mild charivari. The last movement is very vigorous, high spirited, and brilliantly scored.
ETHEL BABTLETT and RAE ROBERTSON and Orchestra
Grieg was in tho habit of employing the rhythm and idioms of Scandinavian folk music rather than of making use of the tunes themselves, and ho did this with such skill and effect that, compared with tho composers of his own time, he gives the impression of being the most saturated with folk music of them all. The Symphonic Dances, for example, scored in the first place for orchestra, contain wholly original music and should not bo confused with other suites by Grieg, many of which were written originally for pianoforte and scored for orchestra later, either by the composer himself or by others.

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.
