SIGURD RASCHER (saxophone)
GEORGE PARKER (baritone)
It is only of late years that the saxophone has begun to be considered seriously as a solo instrument. In dance bands and military bands the name of the saxophone is legion, but it is rarely, indeed, that its beautiful possibilities as a solo instrument are heard in recital or on the concert
I platform. Sigurd Rascher , who can well claim to be one of the most outstanding virtuosos of the instrument, has made a considerable name for himself, particularly in America, for his beautiful playing of serious music specially written or arranged for his instrument. This evening, for instance, he will be heard in his own arrangement for saxophone of a Bach sonata.

Francesco Santoliquido is a name that is almost unknown in England. He was born in 1883, studied at the Liceo Santa Cecilia in Rome, had an orchestral work produced in Nuremburg in 1909, and produced an opera in Milan in 1910. For many years he lived in the remote Arab village of Tunisia. He now lives in Rome, but spends a considerable part of the year in Northern Africa. Santoliquido's style as a composer has to some extent been influenced by his oriental surroundings, and in 1919 his second opera, Ferhuda, based on scenes from Arab life, was produced at Tunis. He has also written an orchestral work that is based on popular Arab tunes.
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.

This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers,
