: THE WESTERN STUDIO ORCHESTRA

Leader, FRANK Thomas
Moszkowski, brilliant pianist, teacher, composer and conductor, who is probably best remembered and best loved for his bright and melodious music for piano solo and duet, frequently made use of the vivid Spanish rhythms, and these Dances are among the most successful pseudo-Spanish music in existence. More than a mere imitation of the dance forms, it does indeed capture something of the spirit which animates the genuine dances of Spain.

: THE NEW VICTORIA CINEMA ORCHESTRA

Directed by SYDNEY PHASEY
Relayed from
The New Victoria Cinema, Bradford
The Sicilian Vespers is a blood and thunder opera, indeed Wagner called it ' A night of carnage,' so deeply is it concerned with conspiracy and revenge and with a wholesale massacre to conclude the last act. All this, however, could not, in the period in which it was written, 1855, break the tradition which made it necessary that a ballet should take place on the stage at some time during every opera, no matter whether the subject was comedy or tragedy. This music, therefore, will be found to be the light-hearted type of dance music which Verdi made so sparkling and effective, and nothing of a bloodthirsty nature will be heard throughout. The four scenes in the complete Ballet represent respectively: Winter, Spring, Summer, and Autumn.

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
