Jdrnfelt
Armas Jarnefelt is a distinguished Finnish composer who for some time was Conductor and Director of the Opera at Helsingfors. Later he settled in Stockholm where he was appointed Conductor of the Opera. He has composed numerous choral and orchestral works which are rarely played outside his own country. His name became well known here after the first performance at the Proms in 1909 of his charming little orchestral piece . Praeludium
Kalinnikov
Basil Sergeivich Kalinnikov (1866-1900) was the son of a Russian police official. He was educated at the Orlovsky Seminary where he studied music. and for a short time conducted the choir. In 1884 he managed to scrape enough money together to enter the Music School of the Moscow Philharmonic Society where he studied the bassoon and composition. Some years later he was appointed the Assistant Conductor to the Italian Opera in Moscow, but owing to ill-health he was obliged to resign this post and live in the Crimea. The remaining years of his life he devoted to composition. His First Symphony, in G minor, after its first performance in his native country, was heard in Vienna, Berlin, Paris, and London (1908).
Bax's 'Mediterranean'
' Mediterranean ' was first published in 1920 as a piano solo, but in the following year the composer transcribed it for orchestra. The music, as its title suggests, is intended to be an impression of the Mediterranean off the Spanish coast. With remarkable skill Bax secures the atmosphere of his subject; the music alternates between moods of languidness and exuberance.
Moszkowski
A good deal of Moszkowski's bright and melodious pianoforte music is happily known to listeners. In spite of his Polish sounding name, he was a German who held a leading place as solo pianist and teacher in more than one great German school. He made many appearances in London, first at a Philharmonic Concert in 1886, and for the last time in 1908, when he conducted a programme of his own music in Queen's Hall.

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.
