(Section E)
(Led by Marie Wilson )
Conducted by CYRIL DALMAINE
Most of the music of Balfour Gardiner known to listeners was composed prior to the War, but a number of his works remain in the repertory and increase in popularity. This overture, remodelled from a comparatively early work, was performed for the first time in May, 1911, at Queen's Hall, and has since become a familiar item in concerts of British music. Balfour Gardiner studied partly in Frankfort, and was there the colleague of Norman O'Neill , Roger Quilter , Cyril Scott , and Percy Grainger. He has always been very active in the interests of British music, and an older generation will remember with gratitude the important series of orchestral concerts devoted to the compositions of British musicians which ho gave some twenty years ago.
It would have been safe to say that Thomas F. Dunhill was known to listeners mainly as a chamber music and song composer until his recent triumph as a composer of the opera Tantivy Towers, to the book of A. P. Herbert. As a matter of fact, Dunhill is a composer of great versatility, though his tastes and activities lie very largely in the field of chamber music, to which he has contributed both as composer and author of a book on the subject. His enthusiasm began in his early days, while he was holding teaching posts at Eton College and the Royal College of Music. He then instituted a most important series of Chamber Music concerts which proved of special value to his many colleagues, the British composers whose works were the backbone of the performances.
Vaughan Williams has written little for pianoforte solo, but this work was originally an example in that form. It was later scored by him for string orchestra and given its present name. Charterhouse is Vaughan Williams 's old school.

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.
