: A RECITAL

Theresa la Cava (mezzo-soprano)
The Sylvan Trio: John Francis (flute)
Evelyn Rothwell (oboe)
Millicent Silver (pianoforte)
Theresa la Cava has been broadcasting since the Savoy Hill days, and comes to the microphone with a background of experience surely as varied as any singer now living. She studied for five years with Anna Williams at the Royal College of Music and later privately under
Signor Bacci. Her musical experience has ranged from concerts at camps and recitals during the war, to lieder recitals, and to Spanish, Italian, and Neapolitan music.
She has collected a unique library from all parts of the Continent, and has made a speciality of collecting rare songs. She claims to have got the last bundle of songs out of Madrid before the outbreak of the Spanish civil war. She has often spent as much as two years hunting for specific songs, one of which she once heard in Valparaiso and later found in Milan.

: THE ROYAL PHILHARMONIC SOCIETY'S CONCERT

Part 1
The London Philharmonic
Orchestra
Leader, David McCallum
Conducted by Sir Henry J. Wood
Solomon (pianoforte) from Queen's Hall, London
Sole Lessees, Messrs. Chappell andCo. Ltd.)
Bax's ' November Woods ' was composed in 1917 at a time when the composer Was extremely luscious in his style. If his later works show more economy in means, nowhere is there greater mastery of orchestral effect than in this beautiful tone poem ' November Woods '. It has been described as ' a picture of storms and driving leaves and the sere and dank atmosphere of autumn. Mingled with this is the mood of human loneliness and regret, which is finally absorbed in the restlessness and turmoil of nature', which well sums up the poetic characteristics of the music.
(Solo pianoforte, SOLOMON)
In the last and biggest of his five piano concertos, the so-called ' Emperor Beethoven made several innovations in the traditional form. particularly in the first movement which is symphonic in style.
The slow movement is in effect a series of free variations on a melody of exceptional beauty, and the last movement is a brilliant rondo, which is linked with the slow movement by a beautiful transition passage. The theme heard at the outset, gay and swift-footed, sets the pace for a movement which is throughout in Beethoven's brightest good spirits.

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.
