Conducted by J. D. Scoins
(From Newcastle)


Conducted By: J. D. Scoins

: A Sullivan-German Programme

Leader, Alfred Barker
Conductor, T. H. MORRISON Sir Edward German is best known to the musical public by his light operas, his songs, and his theatre incidental music. But in addition to these, he has written a good deal of purely orchestral music, of which the ' Welsh Rhapsody ' is the most popular.
The music of this work is built upon four traditional Welsh tunes. These are developed, embellished, and given orchestral colour with all German's skill and artistry. The opening Allegro is based on the tune ' Loudly Proclaim'; the second part is a scherzo-like movement having ' Hunting the Hare' as its motif; a slow section which follows is built around the lovely melody ' David of the White Rock ' ; and, to end up with, ' The Men of Harlech' is used to form a stirring march.

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.
