Brahms's Gypsy Songs, written in 1887, are based on the words from a book of twenty-five Hungarian folk songs with piano accompaniment published in Budapest. Brahms was so pleased with the words that he took fifteen of the melodies and reset them for solo vocal quartet with piano accompaniment, publishing eleven under the title of ' Zigeunerlieder ', Op. 103, the remaining four being later included in the Six Quartets, Op. 112. The subject of the ' Zigeunerlieder ' is a sort of general treatment of the pleasure and tribulations of love.

: SYMPHONY CONCERT—3

BBC Symphony Orchestra : conductor, Sir Adrian Boult
Bax's Symphony No. 1 was composed in 1922, when he was thirty-nine years of age, and is dedicated to John Ireland. It is full of exceptional vitality and possesses an architectural sweep that is, to say the least, impressive. Bax is no formalist turning out symphonies to pattern. His attitude to the symphony form is essentially rhapsodic and his treatment essentially romantic. Three features stanj out even after a casual hearing of the Symphony No. 1 : wealth of rhythmic and melodic invention, lavish orchestration, and a richness of harmony that does not disdain the use of dissonances, if necessary, to enforce his conception.

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 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 find thousands of radio and TV programmes that are already available to view or listen to on the BBC website.

This is a historical record of both 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
