From Birm inghatn
TCHAIKOVSKY explained that his Fourth
Symphony had a ' programme.' A ' motto ' theme that runs through it represents, he said, Fate, ' that inevitable force which checks our aspirations towards happiness.'
The Movement we are to hear (the Second, slow, one) expresses ' the melancholy that steals over us at evening,' and its contrasted themes represent the memories of youth, some sweet, some sad. rtRANADOS (1867-1916) found inspiration for his most important compositions in the work of Francisco Goya , the celebrated Spanish painter who died in April, 1828. He composed a set of Pianoforte pieces called Goyescas, giving in another medium impressions of tho scenes depicted by the artist. He also made an Opera upon the episodes he treated in these
Pianoforte pieces.


Conducted By: Richard Wassell
Unknown: Francisco Goya

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.
