(xylophone and vibraphone) Joseph Engleman is a self-taught composer. He was the viola player in the original City of Birmingham Orchestra. His works include a number of orchestral suites and a ballet which was performed at a concert of modern music, conducted by Dr. Boult several years ago. His father was the trombonist at the old Grand Theatre, Birmingham, and his son, Harry, is a professional pianist and is now a frequent broadcaster with his quintet.
A Musical Melange
This programme is chiefly a revival of one that was presented by Martyn Webster in May, when the first broadcast performance of Gershwin's American in Paris in its entirety was given. The present programme will follow similar lines as before, although the selection of numbers will not be quite the same.
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.

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.
