Illustrated on the Gramophone by J. E. WALLACE, Mus.Doc.
I- 'Till Eulenspiegel 's Merry Pranks' (Strauss)
This begins a new series of Northern gramophone recitals designed for the listener who likes some explanation of the serious orchestral music he hears. Dr. J. E. Wallace , who will present the series, is a master of this difficult art. Last winter he came to the microphone regularly to give talks on music during the intervals in the Halle broadcasts, and listeners will remember how, at very short notice, he stepped into Sir Thomas Beecham's shoes to conduct the final Liverpool Philharmonic Concert last season.
Tonight he will discuss one of Richard Strauss's most famous tone poems, with actual musical illustrations on the gramophone-and then the complete work will be played throughout without comment.

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.
