: THE SERGE KRISH SEPTET

(All arrangements by Serge Krish )

Contributors

Arrangements By: Serge Krish

: THE BBC MILITARY BAND

Conductor,
B. WALTON O'DONNELL
The subject of Rimsky-Korsakov's Symphonic Suite ' Scheherazade ' is from the Arabian Nights, and the score is prefaced with the following note : * The Sultan Schahriar , convinced of the infidelity of the whole race of women, has sworn to send each of his wives to death after only one bridal night. But Scheherazade saves her life by interesting him in tales which she recounts one after another for one thousand and one nights. Impelled by curiosity, the Sultan puts off from day to day the fate of the lady, and ends, as all the world knows, by renouncing his blood-thirsty intention '.

: ORCHESTRA

Franck's Symphony in D, minor was' the result of very careful thought and much labour, for it was begun in 1880 but not finished until 1888. It was first performed in the following year at a concert of the Paris Conservatoire. Gounod described itas ' the affirmation of impotence carried to the length of dogma ', which is very different from Vincent d'Indy's opinion that it is a constant ascension to pure joy and life-giving light, because its construction is solid, and its themes are manifestations of pure beauty. What can be more joyous, more healthily alive, than the principal motif of the Finale, round which cluster — as if to crystallise themselves—all the other ideas of- the work, while in the higher regions that one which has. justly been christened " the motif of Faith " always dominates the score.'

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
