Three Rhapsodies
Of the three rhapsodies that make up this programme, two — the ' Irish ' and the ' Welsh '-are brilliant fantasias on national airs, both, as it happens, by composers best known for their work in the field of light opera. The Irish-American Victor Herbert , a grandson of Samuel Lover , in addition to some thirty-five operettas, also produced a couple of grand operas, two cello concertos, and various symphonic compositions ; the orchestral works of Sir Edward German are as well known as Merrie England and Tom Jones. Both the Herbert and the German works are exceedingly effective dressings-up of folk tunes.
Butterworth's ' A Shropshire Lad ' is quite a different type of rhapsody: poetic rather than brilliant, and based on material of the composer's own. Butterworth here broods over snatches of melody from his two sets of ' Shropshire Lad' songs to which the rhapsody is a sort of orchestral epilogue. The predominant mood is that of Housman's poem:
Loveliest of trees, the cherry now
Is hung with bloom along the bough.

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.
