: SIBELIUS FESTIVAL

The London Philharmonic
Orchestra
Leader, David McCallum
Conductor,
Sir Thomas Beecham , Bart.
Ignatius (violin) from The Aeolian Hall
Incidental Music to The Tempest,
Suite 2, Op. 109
1 Chorus of Winds. 2 Intermezzo. 3 Dance of Nymphs. 4 Prospero. 5 First Song, Second Song. 6 Miranda. 7 The Naiads. 8 Dance-Episode
8.31 Suite, Swanwhite, Op. 54
1 The Peacock. 2 The Harp. 3 Listen-Robin Sings. 4 The Prince Alone. 5 Swanwhite ana the Prince
Sibelius's ' Swanwhite ' suite consists of the incidental music to a charming fairy play of Strindberg, the Scandinavian dramatist, who was not as a rule given to charm. In this case, however, he got his material from the folk ballads of his country and not from his own somewhat gloomy conception of life. Sibelius has played up to the spirit of the story, and his music is full of grace and delicacy. The complete suite consists of seven pieces.

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
