: BRIEF INTERLUDE

Presenting a musical novelty—
' Dance Suite' by Eduard Kunneke for dance band and full orchestra
The special dance band
(Players: Dave Shand , Tiny Winters, George Firestone , Bert Read , Tommy McQuater , Archie Craig , George Chisholme , Norman Molony , Reg Leopold , Sid Colin , David Wilkins , and Billy Anstell ) and The BBC Theatre Orchestra
Leader, Tate Gilder will be conducted by Stanford Robinson
Stanford Robinson conducted the first performance in England of this 'Dance Suite" on April 23, 1936. It is written in the form of a concerto grosso for dance band and full orchestra, each combination skilfully 8etting off the tone and colour of the other. There are five movements: an Overture in foxtrot tempo, a Blues, an Intermezzo, a Valse mélancolique, and a Finale, again in foxtrot time. The dance element is very much in continental style, and is quite different from American jazz or swing music.

The first two movements of Vaughan Williams's Piano Concerto in C were sketched in 1926 and the third movement in 1930, but it was not until two or three years later that the work was completed, and in February, 1933, it was given its first performance at a BBC concert with Harriet Cohen as soloist. It is one of the finest works written for piano and orchestra by a British composer.

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.
