The Symphony in E minor, written in 1899, was not actually Sibelius's first symphony, for as early as 1893 he had written a choral symphony, ' Kullervo '. But ' Kullervo ' has never been published, and is not reckoned in the list of the composer's symphonic compositions. When Sibelius wrote his E minor Symphony at thirty-four he had not yet completely found his own way. The Symphony is far less austere. far more easily approachable than his later, more mature works. But though romantic and colourful in a vein that Sibelius has long abandoned, it could have been written by no one but him. The striking, passionate chief theme of the first movement, the grim scherzo, the magnificent finale—all bear the stamp of Sibelius's unique mentality.

' Don Juan ' was the first of Strauss's tone poems that showed him to be a composer of genius and a worthy successor to Liszt. The music is based on the hero of the poem by Lenau, describing the adventures of Don Juan in his crazy search for his ideal of incarnate womanhood.
There are four principal themes heard at the outset, all glowing with the youthful ardour of the quest.
The second section of the poem, which is quoted in the score, tells of disillusionment.
The closing section represents
Don Juan 's death and his despair in realising that life has lost its charm for him.
As might be expected of this concerto by Chopin, the pianoforte part completely overshadows the orchestra. The solo part'is, however, real piano music, designed to display the poetic qualities of the instrument as none could do better than Chopin.
The second movement is a Romance, of which Chopin himself said, ' It is intended to convey the impression received when the eye rests on a beloved landscape on a moonlight night in spring, calling up in one's soul beautiful memories '.
The brilliant last movement is, however, generally considered the most effective of the three.

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.
