: A Recital

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.

: THE BBC MILITARY BAND

Conducted by WILLIAM J. MATTHEWS
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.

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.
