(Section E)
Led by Laurance Turner
Conducted by Joseph Lewis
Tom Williams (baritone)
(First Performance)
Reginald King is one of our most popular composers of light music. His compositions include ' Song of Paradise ', ' Summer Breezes ', ' Dream Life ', ' Country Life ', and many more as well known. Today is to be broadcast the first performance of his new suite ' In the Chilterns ', which is perhaps a little more ambitious in structure and more mature in character than previous works of his. The suite is the outcome of his frequent visits to the Chiltern Hills. His love of nature and the quietude of rural life are well portrayed in all his music, and especially in this new work dedicated to his own countryside.

: SALZBURG FESTIVAL

Act 2 of Mozart's Opera
'DON GIOVANNI ' from the Festspielhaus,
Salzburg
The Vienna
Philharmonic Orchestra
Conductor, BRUNO WALTER
Act 2 opens before the house of Donna Elvira , a forsaken victim of Giovanni, who is now in pursuit of Zerlina, a peasant girl in Elvira's service. He exchanges cloaks with his servant Leporello and sends him to call upon Elvira while Giovanni gives his attention to Zerlina. They are disturbed by Masetto, Zerlina's betrothed, but Giovanni beats him and gets away. In Elvira's house the pretended Giovanni is soon discovered by Elvira, Anna, and Ottavid to be only Leporello, and their suspicion of Giovanni's villainy is still further confirmed.
The next scene is a graveyard. To
Giovanni comes Leporello to warn his master of his danger, but the libertine is in too high spirits to consider the warning. A hollow voice, however, now comes from a statue close by. It is that of the dead Commander, exhorting Giovanni to repent. Giovanni insolently invites the statue to sup with him. In the last scene, Giovanni is seated at table attended by Leporello. Giovanni opens the door to the ghostly statue of the Commander, who, after further exhortations, seizes Don Giovanni , and, the ground opening, draws him down into the naming abyss.

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.
