(Section C)
(Led by MARIE WILSON )

Sir Charles Stanford was an Irishman, and in his compositions was never so happy as when dealing with Irish National music. These Dances were originally written for pianoforte solo and scored later. The March Jig that he uses is known as ' Maguire's Kick,' the Leprechaun referred to in the third dance, is the name given to a gnome, a familiar figure in Irish fairy lore, who was often malicious, but the principal thing about him was that he knew where hidden treasure was to be found.
Armstrong Gibbs's ballet music was written for Maeterlinck's play, The Betrothal, a sequel to his more popular The Blue Bird. The Betrothal was put on at the Gaiety Theatre in 15)21, and it was the means of bringing Gibbs's work as a composer before a large public.
Wagner wrote very few songs, but this is one of five which ho composed for voice and orchestra.
Actually, it is a study for the love song from Tristan and Isolda, and by those who know Tristan it will be instantly recognised.
The notes which correspond to the letters of Bach's name, B (B flat in Germany), A, C, H (B natural in Germany), adapt themselves admirably as a subject for a fugue. Many composers have used it, even Bach himself, for example, in his great work, ' The Art of Fugue.' As a rule composers intend it as a gesture of homage to the great master, as Liszt has done in this case.

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.

Welcome to BBC Genome
