Harold Williams (baritone)
Kendall Taylor (piano)
BBC Symphony Orchestra
(Leader, Paul Beard)
Conducted by Sir Malcolm Sargent From the Royal Albert Hall, London
Referring to his Symphony in E minor. ' From the New World,' Dvorak said that although he had been influenced by certain Negro and Indian melodies, all the themes were in fact his own. He also declared that whatever he wrote, either in America or elsewhere, was in essence * genuine Bohemian music.' The Symphony was written in 1893, during Dvorak's term of office as Director of the New York National Conservatory. It was Brahms who read the proofs of the work, since Simrock, the publisher, was anxious to bring it out quickly and Dvorak was far away across the Atlantic (' I can scarcely believe there is another composer in the world who would do as much,' said Dvorak). The Symphony was first played in New York in 1893; and at its first performance in Vienna three years later, the two great composers sat together in a box.

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.
