(Section C)
Conducted by JOSEPH LEWIS LUCY SCOLLICK (pianoforte)
(First Performance)
The four little numbers which have been arranged for orchestra by Haydn Wood for the first time, are part of the late Sir Edward Elgar 's ' Seven Lieder '. They were some of his earlier compositions, but the fact that they have lived through so many years, proves that they were the first of his really good work. The song ' Like to the Damask Rose ' has, of course, become a classic, and is one of the few Elgar songs that are used on practically all recital programmes. We understand that the songs were published very reluctantly by one firm in the early 'nineties, but were later taken over by the present publishers, who realised their worth. These orchestral transcriptions, made with loving care by a great admirer of Elgar's, may be said to be Haydn Wood 's ' Homage to Elgar'. '.
Alexandre Charles Lecocq was born just over a century ago and lived to within' a few days of the Armistice. But excepting for occasional performances of his most popular operetta, La Fille de Madame Angot , he is a practically forgotten composer. In his day, however, some fifty or sixty years ago, he was, even in England, one of the most successful operetta composers on a stage that almost idolised Offenbach and Johann Strauss.

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.
