Arthur Gleghorn (flute)
Mozart's Flute Concerto No. 2, in D, was composed about the year 1778 and, like the First Concerto, was possibly written for the Due de Guisnes, to whom Mozart had an introduction on his ill-fated visit to Paris. We know that the Duke was a skilful flute player, and that it was for him and his daughter that Mozart composed the Concerto for flute and harp. The Flute Concerto is full of lyrical beauty, and the solo part exploits the possibilities of the flute with fine effect.

Norman Fraser
Norman Fraser was born in Valparaiso in 1904, of Scottish and Spanish parents. He began to study the piano at an early age, and at twelve appeared as soloist at the Winter Gardens, Bournemouth. He' then entered the Royal Academy of Music to study under Albanesi, and finally he went to Switzerland and Paris. It was in Paris that his first compositions were published at the age of eighteen. He then returned to London and studied under
Tobias Matthay for three years. A few years in Vienna followed, and he embarked on his career as a concert pianist. After touring Europe he came to settle permanently in London, where he chiefly occupies himself with teaching and composing.
William Yeates Hurlstone
In 1906 Hurlstone died at the age of thirty. He had already proved himself a highly gifted composer and one of the most promising of the younger British school. Hurlstone's first work was a set of ' Five Valses ' for piano, which were published when he was only nine years of age. At eighteen he won a scholarship at the Royal College of Music and studied composition under Stanford for several years.

(Section D)
Led by Marie Wilson
Conducted by Clarence Raybould
Arthur Catterall (violin)
Edric Cundell 's symphonic poem 'Serbia ', which is dated 'Macedonia, 1917 ', was written while the composer was attached to the Serbian forces during the War.
The score is prefaced with the following note: 'This symphonic poem is based on folk songs, which the Serbian soldiers used to sing during the time of their great trial, following their tragic retreat over the Albanian mountains. Although this work follows no definite programme, it is descriptive of the general feeling of the Serbian people during the years of the European War.'
' Serbia ' was dedicated to the late
King Alexander (when Prince) of Serbia, and was first performed at Salonika by the Royal Orchestra, It is perhaps worth noting that the entire work was composed in a dug-out, close to the Bulgar lines. The music is solemn in character, though relieved here and there by a spirit of care-free defiance, a diversity of mood that is typical of the Serbian temperament.

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.
