Eric Greene (tenor) Sir William Sterndale Bennett was one of the first students at the Royal Academy of Music, which began its existence in humble quarters off Hanover Square. On his appearance as a solo pianist at one of the Academy concerts he met Mendelssohn, and the two musicians became life-long friends. Sterndale Bennett visited Leipzig, where Mendelssohn was in charge of the Gewandhaus Orchestra, and on several occasions played and conducted his own works in the famous Gewandhaus. In 1866 Sterndale Bennett was appointed Principal of the Royal Academy of Music and later became Professor of Music at Cambridge. One of his most popular works was the cantata The May Queen, which sets forth the joyous spirit of May Day. It was composed for the Leeds Festival of 1858, of which Sterndale Bennett was the conductor.
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.
