VERA DE VILLIERS (contralto)
ORCHESTRA
This version of Mussorgsky's ' Night on the Bare Mountain ' is practically a composition by Rimsky-Korsakov based posthumously on Mussorgsky's material. It depicts a witches' sabbath on a mountainside. Towards the end a church bell is heard from the valley below and, as dawn breaks, the evil spirits scatter and flee.
Mussorgsky himself had composed his ' witch ' music as early as 1867 and used it several times : as an ' orchestral picture ', in the opera Mlada, and in another opera, The Fair at Sorotchintsy. But none of these forms seems to have satisfied him.

Liadov
Liadov (1855-1914), one of the lesser, but one of the most charming of Russian composers, confined himself chiefly to short pieces. He was often planning to do big things, but they never materialised.
These eight orchestral pieces on Russian folk songs are among the most delightful things he ever did. Each is a perfect little masterpiece of orchestration. Diaghilev used these pieces in the ballet Children's Tales; hence they are sometimes (quite wrongly) spoken of as ' Russian Fairy Tales '.
Romeo and Juliet
This overture, one of Tchaikovsky's first important compositions, was written in the early eighteen-seventies at a period when the composer was in close touch with the leaders of the ' nationalist ' group in Petersburg, particularly with Balakirev, Rimsky-Korsakov, and the art critic Stassov. The subject of the overture was actually suggested to the composer by Stassov, who had married into an English family and was a passionate admirer of English literature in general, and Shakespeare in particular.
Musically, Romeo and Juliet shows the influence of Balakirev, who took a keen interest in the progress of the composition and to whom it was dedicated. His admiration of the work was shared by the other members of his circle.

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
