: THE BBC WELSH ORCHESTRA

Leader, Frank Thomas
Conducted by Mansel Thomas
Ethel Gomer-Lewis (soprano)
Emil Nikolaus von Reznicek , son of an Austrian Field-Marshal, was born in Vienna in 1860. After studying at the Leipzig Conservatoire, he held various conducting posts, including those of Court Kapellmeister at Weimar and conductor of the Berlin Comic Opera. In 1920 he was appointed composition professor at the State High School for Music, Berlin.
Reznicek's Donna Diana , a three-act comic opera produced at Prague in 1894, is a light-hearted comedy of love in Barcelona. It tells the story of the conquest of the alcalde's cold-hearted daughter, Diana, by the toreador, Don Cesar.

The BBC Midland Orchestra
Led by Ernest Element
Conductor, W. K. Stanton
The programme will include (Midland Programme)
Meyerbeer first made the acquaintance of Rossini's music at Venice in 1815. He was then a young man of twenty-four who had written little besides two unsuccessful German operas. 'Rossini's Tancredi we are told, 'was then at the height of its popularity, and all Venice resounded with " Di tanti palpiti ". To Meyerbeer this was a revelation, and he surrendered spell-bound to the genial charm.' The immediate result was to incite him to produce a prolific crop of Italian operas, culminating in Il Crociato (1824), all of which enjoyed great success.
In 1826 Rossini himself produced
Meyerbeer's Crociato in Paris and invited the composer there to see the first performance. He had, as it were, invited the cuckoo into the nest. His William Tell (1829) was eclipsed in popularity by Meyerbeer's Robert le Diable (1831) and Les. Huguenots (1836), and in disgust he abandoned opera composition altogether.

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.
