: THE BBC ORCHESTRA

(Section C)
Led by LAURANCE TURNER
Conducted by CLARENCE RAYBOULD
NORMAN WALKER (bass)
' Le Rouet d'Omphale ' is a beautiful piece of tone painting based on the legend of Hercules enslaved by the Lydian queen. But the composer warns us not to take its programme too literally, since the subject is meant primarily to illustrate the seductiveness of woman and the struggle between weakness and strength.
A French critic has described the music in detail as follows: 'An arpeggio figure, alternating between the flute and the violins, soon leads to an orchestral illustration of the whirr of the wheel..... A broad melody in the basses, repeated in the different melodic progressions, the instrumentation becoming each time more powerful and highly coloured, expresses the anguish of the hero, who cannot free himself from the wiles of Omphale, and the same phrase in another rhythm becomes the lively derision which the coquettish queen expends upon her lover's fruitless efforts to get free.'

Mendelssohn's overture, otherwise known as ' Fingal's Cave', was inspired by a visit paid by the composer to Scotland in 1829. This very beautiful work has well been described as a seascape, and it certainly suggests the surge of the sea in all its power and ruggedness. As a piece of musical construction it is perfect in form, and the orchestration shows the hand of a delicate and masterly colourist.

: A Recital

MEGAN FOSTER (soprano)
LUCILLE WALLACE (harpsichord)
Since Lucille Wallace 's broadcast of Handel's harpsichord music in the ' Foundations ' early last year, she has been very busy on the Continent : three recitals for the Bach Festival at The Hague, recitals in Amsterdam, Berlin, and Paris and appearances before the microphone in Holland and Vienna. After her present broadcast recital Miss Wallace is returning to Vienna to give a special programme of English music for the Vienna Bach Club and Madrigal Society. Later on Miss Wallace will go to Paris, where she has been engaged by the Cercle Interallié, a very exclusive musical club. She will play a new harpsichord concerto specially written for the occasion.
At the age of fourteen Herbert Hughes was organist at St. Peter's Church, Belfast, and a few years later he came to London to study at the Royal College of Music. As a musician his name has been closely associated with Irish folk music, of which he has made numerous fine arrangements.

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.
