: THE B.B.C. ORCHESTRA

(Section D)
Led by LAURANCE TURNER
Conducted by KEITH DOUGLAS
Overture, The Mastersingers... Wagner
Two Irish Folk-songs:
The Londonderry Air arr. Grainger The Snowy-Breasted Pearl . arr. Keith Douglas
Symphonic Poem. Le Chasscur maudit
(The Accursed Huntsman). .Franck
A Welsh Rhapsody. Maurice Johnstone Choreographic poem, La Valse. .Ravel
Most countries have their own legends of the Accursed Huntsman, who is condemned to ride for ever through the night as a punishment for some awful misdeed on earth. The original \Vild Huntsman was Orion, but we meet him everywhere-in the North of Scotland, in Yorkshire, and in many parts of Europe. In Germany the legend is mixed up with the tale of Venus in her retreat, which Wagner uses in his opera Tannhduser. The goddess, so they tell you, is now a hideous old woman, driving for ever in a coach and pair among the rabble which follows in the Wild Huntsman's train. Children are told that if they are wicked, they will go to her when they die, and fly shrieking through the night behind her. Cesar Franck's music is based on the German legend of the story.
There are four scenes : the peace of Sunday morning with its joyful chants and bells pealing; the Hunt; the Count deserted by his followers, and the dreadful voice which condemns him for his sacrilege; and last, the terrible hunting which has no end.
Johann Strauss proves to have been a towering figure. For half a century he dominated the dance rooms of the world, and for longer than that he will continue to influence the rhythm of the dance and obsess the minds of its craftsmen. Viennese music to this day means the music of the waltz, and no higher praise can be given to a certain type of music than to say it is in spirit truly Viennese. Brahms acknowledged Johann's genius, Richard Strauss emulated it in Der Rosenkavalier, a whole school of composition has been built upon its idiom, and the greatest have been glad to borrow from it. This ' choreographic poem ' by Ravel is admittedly an essay in the style and manner of the Viennese waltz, and he has issued instructions to the players that it is in that spirit he wishes it to be rendered. The composer has imagined and pictured a vast ballroom, full of wahzing couples, growing gayer and brighter as the music proceeds until the fully-lighted scene resembles a ball at the Imperial Court of Vienna in the great days when Johann Strauss was ' king '.

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.
