A programme of very light tunes arranged for Wind Ensemble

: Chamber Music

Alan Hyde (horn)
John Mason (horn)
Gilbert Vinter (bassoon)
Cecil James (bassoon)
Alan Frank's Suite for two clarinets consists of a prelude, march, rondo, dirge, and finale, all of which are very short in length and characteristic of the composer's light and epigrammatic style. Originally written for, and dedicated to, Frederick Thurston and Ralph Clarke, of the BBC Symphony Orchestra, this suite has been both published and recorded.
Mr. Frank is a clarinettist himself and for a short period he studied under Charles Draper and Frederick Thurston, but as a composer, like William Walton, Mr. Frank is self-taught. Besides this suite two other notable compositions that have been published are 'March for piano duet' and 'Music for piano'. His activities also include music publishing and musical journalism. His keen and informative writing is well known to Radio Times readers. His wife is that promising young British composer, Phyllis Tate, who has already made a name for herself on the Continent as well as in Britain.

: THE BBC ORCHESTRA

(Section E)
Led by Laurance Turner
Conducted by Clarence Raybould
Gordon Walker (flute)
Gordon Walker -and Robert Murchie share the honour of being the two leading flautists in Britain. For many years now Mr. Walker has been principal flute of the London Symphony Orchestra and has appeared as a soloist all over the country. In addition to being a brilliant virtuoso of his instrument, he is a highly sensitive artist and a musician of considerable intellectual attainments.
The music of the Concerto of Reinecke will give listeners an excellent opportunity of judging Mr. Walker's wide range as an artist. Although written in the rather four-square sonata style of the period, particularly the first two movements of this work contain some very beautiful music which shows off with fine effect the lyrical and expressive qualities of the flute as a solo instrument.
The composer, Carl Reinecke , was born at Altona in 1824 and died at Leipzig in 1910. The friend and colleague of Mendelssohn and Schumann, Reinecke rose to considerable fame, first as an orchestral violinist, then as a composer, conductor, and pianist, and for many years he was director of the Gewandhaus Concerts at Leipzig. Although he was a prolific composer, few of his compositions are known in Britain. The best known and probably one of the most unrepresentative is his set of sonatinas for piano.

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
