THE B B C ORCHESTRA
' (Section B)
Leader, ARTHUR CATTERALL
Conductor, ADRIAN BOULT (Soloist, HERBERT JANSSEN> )
The theme of Brahms's Variations was taken from an unpublished Divertimento for wind instruments by Haydn. Professor Tovey points out in his analysis of the work that, although the theme is inscribed ' St. Anthony's Choral', which tells us nothing, nevertheless it has led that othenvise attractively enthusiastic and well-informed biographer, Kalbeck. to read into
Brahms's variations a musical description of the temptation of St. Anthony. Brahms did not live to see this outrage on one of his most serenely beautitul monuments to the joy of sanity. But if- intimacy with a diamond so true and so rough as Brahms could not scarify the nonsense out of his accredited biographer, we can at least give an independent listening to the music. It is quite as imaginative as any masterpiece that ever dealt with St. Anthony's trials ; but whatever the temptations it deals with they never endangered the soul or the reason of saint or sinner.
(Soloist HERBERT JANSSEN )
Overture, In the South (Alassio).Elgar
Elgar's Overture ' In the South ' was the outcome of a visit to Italy during the winter of 1903-4. The composer headed the score with the following lines from Tennyson, which serve as a motto:
' ... What hours were thine and mine, In lands of palm and southern pine, In lands of palm, of orange blossom, Of oHve, aloe, and maize and vine.'
There is an additional quotation consisting of two verses from the sixth canto of Byron's ' Childe Harold ' :
' ... a land which was the mightiest in its old command, and is the loveliest.... Wherein were cast ... the men of Rome !
Thou art the garden of the world.'
After a rehearsal of' In the South ', by the Halle Orchestra, Elgar wrote to a friend : ' That overture is good and the Roman section absolutely knocking over. They read it like angels and the thing goes with tremendous energy and life.'

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.
