: THE B B C ORCHESTRA

(Section C)
Led by LAURANCE TURNER
Conducted by AYLMER BUESST
MIRIAM B. HYDE (pianoforte)
Serge Prokofiev is considered one of the leading contemporary composers of Russia and in his numerous works such as the opera, The Lore for Three Oranges, he has shown himself to be a master technician and a composer of great individuality. His ' Classical Symphony ', however, is not really representative of his style. It was composed in the spirit of a jeu d'esprit that, as its title would suggest, both in form and idiom harks back to the time of Haydn and Mozart. The music is clear-cut, full of straight-forward melodies and tunes, and provides a most attractive glimpse of the eighteenth century through modern eyes.
(First Broadcast Performance)
Miriam Hyde is an Australian pianist who studied at the Royal College of Music. Among her compositions are two piano concertos, both of which received their first performance under the auspices of the Patrons Fund. No. 1 in E flat, written a couple of years ago, is a pleasing and cleverly written work, the music of which may be said to derive its style from Rachmaninov and Tchaikovsky.

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.

Welcome to BBC Genome

Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in programmes, online etc.

This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers, images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
