: A SYMPHONY CONCERT

The BBC Midland Orchestra
Conducted by Leslie Heward
Leonardo Leo (1694-1744) was one of the most distinguished and most prolific Italian composers of the first half of the eighteenth century. Two of his pupils-jommelli and Piccinni, the rival of Gluck-achieved greater fame than himself, but he is too good a composer to be dismissed as a mere interesting historical figure. His numerous comic operas are full of delightful, sparkling melody.
Although Leo's reputation rests mainly on his comic operas and his church music, he composed a certain amount of instrumental music -mainly concerti grossi and key-board toccatas-of which the symphony to be played this afternoon is an excellent example.
3.56 Symphony No. 55, in E flat
(The Schoolmaster) Haydn 1 Allegro molto. 2 Adagio. 3 Minuetto and Trio. 4 Finale :
Presto
4.11 Rustic Wedding Symphony,
Op. 26.....Goldmark 1 Wedding March. 2 Nuptial Hymn. 3 Serenade. 4 In the Garden. 5 Dance

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.
