John Morel (baritone)
Lauri Kennedy (violoncello) John Morel is a Londoner and began his singing career very young as a boy soprano. He later completed his training in Italy. He is not only interested in how he sings, but in what he sings, and builds his programmes. with the care and thoughtfulness of a scholar.
Lauri Kennedy , who used to be the principal 'cellist of the BBC Symphonv Orchestra, and has now been selected for the post of principal 'cellist for Toscanini's new Radio Orchestra in New York, has been playing 'cello solos in public since he was eight. He made his debut at that age in Australia, later studied in Vienna and London, and was then advised by Dame Nellie Melba to go to America. There he met John McCormack and joined him on a long series of tours. Besides travelling with McCormack, Kennedy has toured with Melba, Tetrazzini, and many others, and everywhere with great success.

1 Allegretto. 2 Andante, ma rubato. 3 Vivacissimo-Lento e soave. 4 Finale: Allegro moderato
The two symphonies of Sibelius to be heard this evening represent respectively the early and late periods of the composer's development. No. 2 in D was composed in 1902, and No. 6 in D minor in 1924. In the second symphony Sibelius strikes out on new lines, introducing many important and interesting innovations in symphonic construction. The music is vigorous, pointed, and deeply expressive. The sixth symphony is curiously different in style from any of Sibelius's other symphonies. Constant Lambert describes it as being a ' fascinating study in half-tone, emotional and orchestral '.

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.
