: THE BOYD NEEL STRING ORCHESTRA

Leader, Louis WILLOUGHBY
Conductor, BOYD NEEL
The Suite for Strings is Schonberg's latest work, and received its first performance in New York under Otto Klemperer some weeks ago. It marks yet another phase in Schonberg's development, for it is quite unlike anything he has written before, except perhaps the recent 'Cello Concerto. But whereas the concerto was an attempt to construct something entirely new on an old work of Monn, the present Suite is quite original in material, although classical forms are used.
The Overture reminds us continuously of Beethoven's Grosse Fuge. It consists of alternate slow and quick sections (the quick sections being in fugal style), which are rounded off with a Coda. The Adagio for muted strings contains passages of great beauty, the contrapuntal weaving of parts being extremely complex.
The Minuet would doubtless not have been so called had it been written by Mozart, but the main section and Trio conform to a definite formal plan, with repeats, etc. The Gavotte, also, has repeats and a Coda which is, however, more complex. The Gigue is the most extended and highly developed of the five movements. It is in the classical 12/8 tempo, and there is a predominance of cross-rhythms.

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

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.
