: GILBERT STACEY AND HIS SEXTET

(All arrangements by Gilbert Stacey )
Gilbert Stacey began his career as solo chorister at Lichfield Cathedral and at the age of thirteen played the organ for services there. He then went to Paris and studied under Vincent d'Indy, and on his return to England made a name for himself as a pianist, composer, and conductor. For two years Mr. Stacey was pianist and arranger for the Squire Celeste Octet, and as a conductor he toured with the late Max Darewski , and has appeared on many occasions as conductor of his own compositions.

: THE BBC EMPIRE ORCHESTRA

Leader, Daniel Melsa
Conducted by Clifton Helliwell
Enid Cruickshank (contralto)
In this musical jest Mozart is poking fun not only at the simple musicians who meet together of an evening in the village inn to make music for their own pleasure, but also at the clumsy and maladroit composer. The players are all given chances of being as absurd as they like ; the solo violin, particularly, is invited to indulge in a display of real futility.
There are four movements: the first, Allegro, begins with a very elementary tune, harmonised with the most child-like simplicity. The second is a Minuet, marked Maestoso, and though it, too, is very obvious in its design, there are little snatches of real Mozart-like grace which he clearly could not resist inserting. In the same way, the Adagio cantabile, which is the third movement, begins with a melody which Mozart need not have blushed to give us even in a serious work. The last movement, a bustling Presto, is rather like the first in its simple outlines.

Leader, Paul Beard
Conducted by Sir HENRY J. WOOD
Of the singers to be heard this evening, the appearance of Jeanne Dusseau is of special interest, for it is this artist's debut at the Proms. Of Scottish ancestry but Canadian by adoption, Mme. Dusseau first made her name at the Chicago Opera, to which she was introduced by Mary Garden. On her return to Canada, Mme. Dusseau became interested in folk song, and did much to revive the neglected French-Canadian songs. In 1931 she sang for the first time in New York, where she made a great success.
Tickets can be obtained from [address removed], and usual agents. Prices (including Entertainments Tax): 7s. 6d., 6s., 5s. (reserved), 3s. (unreserved), promenade (payment at doors only) 2s.

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.
