: AN ORCHESTRAL CONCERT

The BBC
Scottish Orchestra
(Augmented)
Leader, J. Mouland Begbie
Conductor, Guy Warrack Grieg's 'Two Melodies ' are transcriptions for string orchestra of two songs. The first, ' My Goal brings an exhilarating breath of the mountains. A short middle section of quieter mood follows, and then the brisk spirit comes out again. The second, ' The First Meeting', is a setting of some words of Bjornson, recalling the joy of love's early rapture. Chaykovsky called Rimsky-Korsakov's Spanish Capriccio a ' colossal masterpiece of instrumentation ', which assuredly it is, but, referring to the first performance, in 1887, Rimsky - Korsakov says in his memoirs that ' the opinion formed by both critics and the public, that the Capriccio is a magnificently orchestrated piece of music is wrong. The Capriccio is a brilliant composition for orchestra. The change of timbres, the felicitous choice of melodic designs and figuration patterns, exactly suiting each kind of instrument, brief virtuoso cadenzas for solo instruments, etc., constitute here the very essence of the composition and not its garb or orchestration.'

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.

Welcome to BBC Genome

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
