Saint Saens's symphonic poems are naturally based upon Liszt's, as are all symphonic poems written since Liszt's day. All such works vary very slightly in construction, and have, as a rule, an artistic resemblance to that type of story known as the conte. They are almost always based upon some literary programme, and are as economical in their subject matter as is a really good concise short story.
The plot of Danse macabre is of the simplest. The scene is a graveyard at night; the clock strikes and Death appears, knocks on the graves, and starts tuning his fiddle. In answer to his summons, several skeletons appear and dance wildly to Death's fiddling. Presently the cock crows, the dance ceases, and all disappear as day breaks.

: Malvern Festival Concert THE CITY OF BIRMINGHAM ORCHESTRA

Leader, ALFRED CAVE
Conducted by ADRIAN BOULT
BEATRICE HARRISON (violoncello)
Relayed from
The Winter Gardens, Malvern
Dvorak's single Violoncello Concerto was written in the early 'nineties, soon after his return from America, and belongs to the period of the ' New World ' Symphony and the Nigger Quartet. But there is practically no trace of Negro colouring in the Concerto. As in the ' New World 'Symphony,, a motto theme dominates the whole work. Here, the motto theme is the first tune of the first movement; it is heard on the clarinets and bassoons, and crops up frequently in this and the succeeding movements.
The Concerto was first played in London in March, 1896, and was then lost sight of for a time. There are few 'cello concertos available; but of a small repertory this is decidedly one of the best, and of recent years has again come into favour. Not only are the possibilities of the solo instrument exploited with admirable effect, but the interest is equally distributed between the soloist and the orchestra, quite in the modern manner.
This musical picture of London and Londoners, sub-titled ' In London Town ', might very well be attributed to a man who knew the city from a child. But Elgar was a Worcestershire man, and no Cockney, though his conception of ' Cockaigne' shows that he loved the city. He has in this work mirrored the varied phases of its life and recorded the beating of its heart. The dignity of London, its gaiety, its citizens, from the pairs of lovers in the park to the whistling street urchins, the Guards band on the march, the Salvation Army, the quiet of a City church, the bustle of the streets-all are set forth in the music.

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.
