BBC Symphony Orchestra
(Leader, Paul Beard )
Conductor, Sir Adrian Boult
Part 1
Prokofiev's Fourth Symphony, which bears the date 1929, was commissioned by Koussevitzky for the fiftieth anniversary M the Boston Symphony Orchestra, which played it for the first time in 1930. It is largely a rearrangement of material from the ballet L'Enfant Prodigue, which Diaghilev had produced shortly before. The first movement, which begins Andante assai and leads to an Allegro eroico, is based on the music for ' The Dancers '; the second, Andante tranquillo, is derived from the finale of the ballet; the third movement, Moderate quasi allegretto, is a transcription of ' The Seductress '; and the final Allegro risoluto makes use of the opening theme of the ballet and one entitled' The Meeting.'

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.
