Led by F. WEIST HILL
Conducted by STANLEY CHAPPLE
ERIC MARSHALL (baritone)
The story goes that Schubert, after hearing Rossini's operas, wrote his ' Overture in the Italian Style ' to show how easily that sort of music could be turned out. There is in the work (and in a companion Overture that he produced about the same time) a good deal of Rossini's eloquence and harmonic economy, and his trick of working up a climax by repeating a little phrase of a few bars. Near the end there is a hint of a greater master-Mozart, and just a glimpse of Schubert's own face.
Stanley Chappie , who is one of the most gifted of the younger British conductors and a fine pianist, was born in 1901 and received his musical education at the Incorporated Academy of Music, under the late Dr. York Trotter. After the war Mr. Chappie went to Germany in order to study chamber music ensemble playing and Lieder accompanying.
On his return to London Mr. Chappie became Dr. Trotter's chief assistant at the Incorporated Academy and eventually became principal, a post from which he resigned last year. Mr. Chappie, who has appeared as a conductor in Vienna (Philharmonic), Berlin, Holland, Scandinavia, and the U.S.A., is now in charge of a conducting class at the Guildhall School of 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.

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
