Performance on 3


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.
A performance of Mahler's third symphony given on Sunday evening at the Royal Festival Hall in London. The Finnish conductor Esa-Pekka Salonen steps in as a replacement for Bernard Haitink , who was originally to have conducted this concert. Mahler's great third symphony is something of a speciality for Salonen, whose reading of the work has brought him great acclaim. A review of a recent recording of the symphony with the Los Angeles Philharmonic Orchestra, which also featured tonight's soloist
Anna Larsson , says that Salonen "is at his best in long emotionally-wrought sections where he can accumulate power and swell Mahler's grand arch." In its six movements the symphony explores man's relationship with the natural world -the flowers of the meadow, the creatures of the forest, morning bells and finally- love. Anna Larsson (mezzo),
St Paul 's Cathedral Choir,
London Philharmonic Choir and Orchestra, conductor Esa-Pekka Salonen

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.
