Kathleen Moorehouse (Violoncello) and Orchestra


We have produced a Style Guide to help editors follow a standard format when editing a listing. If you are unsure how best to edit this programme please take a moment to read it.
This violoncello Concerto, composed in 1876, is in the usual three movements. The first has a slow Introduction before the main quick part appears, opening with a bold, majestic tune played by the soloist. It is the soloist also who has the gentler and more plaintive second tune. In the working out section the theme of the Introduction is used as well as these two, and after the customary recapitulation, there is a little coda.
The second movement has two contrasted moods. First, after a little introduction, a bright song-like tune for the solo violoncello, and the other more vivacious and sprightly. Both of these are repeated.
The last movement has again a short Introduction, with something Spanish in its tune.
Listeners will remember that Lalo more than once turned to Spain for inspiration. The movement itself is a Rondo, in lively measure, the principal tune appearing first on the solo instrument in a merry triplet measure.


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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.
