(Section D)
(Led by Laurance Turner )
Conducted by BASIL CAMERON
Byron never intended his Manfred to be performed in the theatre. He himself said in writing to his publisher, ' at least I have made it impossible for the stage, for which my intercourse with Drury Lane has given me the greatest contempt.' This, however, did not deter Schumann from writing an overture and incidental music for the drama, of which he had so high an admiration that on one occasion on reading the poem to a friend, he burst into tears and was too overcome to go on with the reading. One critic, indeed, drew a comparison between the character of Manfred and that of Schumann's own-a characteristic exaggeration common to the romantic-minded critics of those times. This overture, therefore, may be considered rather as a tone poem, musically illustrating the spirit of Byron's fated hero than the customary overture to a drama.
The Summer Music is one of Arnold Bax 's shorter orchestral works of a nature very suitable for performance on a July evening. It was composed in 1920, in the same year as A Hill Tunc , Country Tune, and Mediterranean, all of them doubtless inspired by summer days.
Sibelius has composed and published seven symphonies, and the musical world is now anxiously awaiting the much heralded and long expected eighth. The composition of these symphonies has extended over Sibelius's musically mature life, the fourth coming about half way, when the composer was forty-six. It is of a somewhat sombre texture composed with its neighbours the third and fifth symphonies which are serene, sunny, and genia], and has in consequence been less performed than the others. It was produced at the Birmingham Festival of 1912, and was conducted by the composer in person. There are the usual four movements, which is rather unusual with Sibelius who has his own ideas as to what form a symphony should take; he has written them in three movements and even in one. Yet with all his unorthodox notions, Sibelius is already numbered among the very great symphonic writers.

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.
