: ' THE THREE INFERNAL JOKES'

A short story by Lord Dunsany read by Carleton Hobbs
He was an ordinary man, a salesman of the Briton Dictionary of Electricity, with one rather extraordinary virtue-to him one woman was as ugly as another. He struck what he thought was a bargain with the infernal regions, but like Faustus, he found later the consequences to be rather uncomfortable. The three jokes he received in exchange for his virtue were as lethal as cyanide. What happened to him after a disastrous dinner at his club which led to his trial for mass murder is told in the amusing vein of fantasy for which Lord Dunsany is famous.

Schumann
Overture,
Manfred Byron was eagerly read by the young romantics in Germany, as elsewhere, in the first half of the nineteenth century, and Schumann was among the poet's most enthusiastic admirers. ' Manfred ' appealed to him strongly, and he set some music to it, meant for the most part to accompany the recitation of the poem. Small parts of it were laid out for singing, and there are some purely orchestral pieces. Schumann's idea was to have it performed on the stage, and it has on one or two occasions been given in that way, notably by Liszt at Weimar.
8 16 Violin concerto in D minor
1 In kraftigem nicht zu schnellem Tempo. 2 Langsam. 3 Lebhaft doch nicht zu schnell
Solo violin, JELLY D'ARANYI
Schumann's Violin Concerto, which was given its first British performance by Jelly d'Aranyi and the BBC Symphony Orchestra under Sir Adrian Boult at Queen's Hall last February, was written in 1853, two tr three years before the composer's death.
In style it is moulded very much on the lines of the classical concertos of Beethoven's period and, in Schumann's own words, ' it reflects a certain seriousness-with moments of cheerfulness lurking in the background '. The seriousness certainly is shown in the first movement. The slow movement, which is particularly attractive, is very expressive and lyrical in character, and the finale is for the most part in the style of a lively polonaise, containing much brilliant passage work for the solo instrument.

Part 2 from Queen's Hall, London

(ninety players)
Leader, Paul Beard
Conducted by SIR HENRY J. WOOD
Schumann's Piano Concerto, in A minor, is one of the most popular concertos for the instrument. The oft-repeated criticism that Schumann was not successful in writing music on a large scale is disproved by this work. Both construction and orchestration are remarkablv clear and attractive. The solo part not only exploits keyboard virtuosity, but is full of those poetic and deeply expressive qualities so characteristic of all Schumann's music.

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.
